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.
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 has new goals now to get
Woods is coming off his return to competitive golf at last week’s Masters.
He surprised many by simply teeing it up, then shot 71-74 to sit just four shots out of second place at the halfway point. He faded to 47th after a pair of 78s on the weekend, when he was visibly fatigued and limping. Tiger said: "I got myself there.
I don't quite have the endurance that I would like to have had, but as of a few weeks ago, didn't even know if I was going to play in this event. To go from that to here, we're excited about the prospects of the future, about training, about getting into that gym and doing some other stuff to get my leg stronger, which we haven't been able to do because it needed more time to heal.
I think it needs a couple more days to heal after this, but we'll get back after it, and we'll get into it." He added to Sky Sport: "It'll be just the big events. I don't know if it'll be Southern Hills or not.
But I am looking forward to St. Andrews. That is something that is near and dear to my heart. I've won two Opens there. It's the home of golf. It's my favorite golf course in the world, so I will be there for that one. But anything in between that, I don't know."
