Tiger Woods Enters World Golf Hall of Fame
Other inductees in the 2022 class include three-time Women’s Open Champion Susie Maxwell, former PGA Tour commissioner Time Finchen, and the late Marion Hollins. In addition to these four new inductees, this year’s ceremony will pay special tribute to Derick Ferris and Peter Ueberroth with the newly created lifetime achievement award which will recognize the two’s incredible contributions to the sport.
Woods’ Incredible Career
Tiger Woods never looked back after going professional in 1992. He achieved success upon success and never seemed to let age fatigue his progress. He has 82 PGA Tour wins throughout his career, which puts him tied for first place with legendary golfer Sam Snead. On top of all the tour wins he is a 15-time major champion which puts him so far ahead of all other golfing peers and competitors of this generation.
Ernie Els, one of the best golfers of the past two decades and one who many fans of the sport would argue is second best only to Woods, recently gave Tiger his dues in an interview, calling him by far the best golfer he had ever come up against. During Woods’ years of supremacy, there were perhaps only four other golfers who ranked close to him in terms of ability, according to Els – himself, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen. All of these four combined accrued 15 major honours – the same amount that Woods achieved on his own.
Woods’ Daughter to Give Speech
Tiger Woods has chosen his 14-year-old daughter, Sam Woods to give the induction speech at the 2022 World Golf Hall of Fame ceremony. She is the older of his two children, and Tiger recently announced his son to the golfing world, not more than two years ago. The ceremony promises to be a beautiful one that will honour one of the greatest golfers to ever play the sport.
