LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Another one of Louisville's finest is now honored with his own mural. Former pro golfer Bobby Nichols is the latest "Hometown Hero" to have his picture put up on the side of a Louisville building -- specifically the Watterson City Building at 1930 Bishop Lane.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of his PGA Championship win.
The Greater Louisville Pride Foundation accepts nominations and chooses who gets a mural.
"Normally with a nomination we ask for a biography or history and a rationale about why this group or individuals think that the potential honoree belongs on a wall with these folks," said Mike Sheehy, founder and president of the Greater Louisville Pride Foundation. "We feel Bobby Nichols is a worthy Louisville Hometown Hero."
Nichols graduated from St. Xavier High School.
