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. 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. Speaking of the time spent on golf courses in his youth, his parents' sacrifices with a special mention to dad Earl, who is gone, Tiger retraced his incredible career during the Hall of Fame's induction.

He said, in particular, a very important anecdote about the color of his skin: "The color of my skin initially did not allow me to enter the Club Houses of many clubs. It was not easy. A thanks to those who never left me alone, my parents, mentors, incredible friends who supported me in the darkest moments."
