Tiger Woods Inducted Into Golf Hall Of Fame

March 11, 2022 by

Golfing great Tiger Woods has been inducted into the sport’s Hall of Fame. Woods cut an emotional picture as he accepted the accolade in the presence of his family and friends on Wednesday.

One of those present had been Woods’ daughter, Sam, who wore red for the occasion in honour of her father. Speaking about difficult times faced alongside her dad, the 14-year-old referred to her father’s accident in February last year, saying the family did not know what to expect and whether or not Woods would be coming home with both legs intact.

She said it was a proud moment that Woods was accepting the award while standing on both his feet.

Tiger Woods has come a long way since first waddling onto the stage of The Mike Douglas Show as a 2-year-old some 44 years ago and hitting a couple of putts for hosts Jimmy Stewart and Bob Hope.

Also inducted on Wednesday were three-time U.S. Women’s Open champion Susie Maxwell Berning and former PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem. Inducted posthumously was American golfer and visionary Marion Hollins.

During her acceptance speech, Berning, now 80, paid tribute to Woods and said she had won all her awards before he was born. This drew a massive smile from the golfing champion.

Those in attendance included PGA Tour players Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, Tom Hoge, Mackenzie Hughes, Jack Johnson, Keegan Bradley, and Billy Horschel. Several existing members of the World Golf Hall of Fame attended the occasion too, including Sandy Lyle, Ben Crenshaw, and Nancy Lopez Russell.
