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. 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. 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.
Tiger Woods' day-1 at the Augusta Masters 2022
At the Augusta Masters, Tiger Woods finished the first day at -1, 4 shots behind the leader Sungjae Im. Tiger said: "As soon as the accident happened, some guys saw what my leg was like: honestly, being here after all I had to go through wasn't so obvious.
such a competitive event is a source of pride and it was wonderful. My strength today is that I was able to adapt to the playing conditions as best I could. If we had played Palm Spring for example, I would be at least -3. I know very well that the Masters route insinuates you with more specific doubts and questions than any other route on the Tour.
For this reason, we old folks can compete with the younger ones. I am sure that I will have to live with the pain: in the next few hours and in the next days it will be a constant annoyance, but it is just like that. Despite all the workouts aimed at improving endurance, I have to keep the pain for the rest of my life.
But now it's time to think about the course again: many holes and three rounds to play in this historic tournament and above all the warmth of the public that instills positivity. I consider myself even more fortunate to be able to play for another new opportunity."
