American golf legend Tiger Woods has been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Woods, who has won 15 majors, was inducted on Wednesday at the PGA Tour headquarters in Florida.

He was inducted alongside several others, including course developer and architect Marion Hollins, four-time major winner Susie Maxwell, and former PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem.

Woods was introduced by his daughter Sam.

“You’ve defied the odds every time – being the first black and Asian golfer to win majors, being able to win your fifth Masters after back surgeries, and being able to walk just a few months after your crash,” said Sam, referring to Woods’ car crash in 2021, the last year that kept him from showing up at this week’s Players Championship at Sawgrass.

“Dad, I inducted you into the Dad Hall of Fame a long time ago,” she continued, “but today, I am so proud to present my dad, Tiger Woods, into the World Golf Hall of Fame.”

The 46-year-old champion burst into tears as he accepted his induction.

“If you don’t go out there and put in the work, you don’t go out and put in the effort, one, you’re not going to get the results,” Wood said. “But two, and more importantly, you don’t deserve it. You need to earn it. So that defined my upbringing. That defined my career.”
