Tiger Woods is officially in the Hall of Fame!

Considered among the best golfers of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, Tiger Woods has won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, in his multi-decade career, making him the most successful player in history.

He held the top spot in the world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, including 281 consecutive weeks, and is the only golfer to have won all four major tournaments of the modern era in a single year. In 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have exceeded a billion dollars in earnings from various sponsors.

In 2019, President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States of America. On February 23, 2021, he is involved in a car accident in Los Angeles and suffers numerous fractures in his legs.

Now, almost a year after the car accident, Tiger Woods was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame and thanked his family for their success. Tiger Woods thus officially enters the Hall of fame at the age of 46 year-old, as reported by Sky Sports.

683 weeks from number one in the world, 13 years and two months. In five seasons, from 1999 to 2003, he won 32 tournaments in 101 appearances. Between 2005 and 2009 he won 31 out of 75. He was Nominated Player of the Year ten times and as many finished at the top of the money list.

Tiger Woods is one of only five golfers in history to have won the Grand Slam in addition to having won 15 Majors and collected a total of 82 successes. "I wish my dad was here with me, he got me started playing," he said.

Justin Thomas said about: "Tiger's earliest memory is at the 1997 Masters. What he has done for the game since is just monumental. I don't think I can even put it into words. He had a huge impact and a strong influence on me."

In 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have broken the billion dollar barrier. Astronomical figure that also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairytale boat. And obviously we are talking about something that has cost a lot.

If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it. 48 meters long, with a total area of ​​600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins capable of accommodating a total of ten people, she also boasts four quarters for nine crew members.

Tiger Woods usually calls it "my dinghy" even if everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, he also has a gym on board where the golfer keeps training. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during the tournaments held in New York.

With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also features an elevator for three people, a huge Jacuzzi, large enough to accommodate eight people, and the inevitable cinema room and corner bar. The extra something for this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted to be dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of a decompression chamber (inflatable) and an area dedicated to filling oxygen cylinders.

The luxuries are also completed by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all of this has a price: Privacy cost 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
