March 08, (THEWILL) – Tiger Woods had described his oncoming induction into the Golf Hall of Fame as “humbling” and “honourable.”

The 46-year-old, is regarded as one of the all-time great golfers. He is a 15-time major champion, second only to Jack Nicklaus (18) in all-time majors won, and has won a record-tying 82 PGA Tour events.
Alongside three-time US Women’s Open champion, Susie Maxwell Berning, former PGA Tour commissioner, Tim Finchem, and the late Marion Hollins, he will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on March 9 during the week of the Players Championship.
“To be honoured and to be selected and to go into the hall with all the idols that I grew up watching and idolising, I’m going to be with them for perpetuity. It’s pretty humbling”, Woods noted.
“Everyone that has been close to me and has been involved in my life, my family, foundation, I want them there. This is a career achievement and I’ve been out here doing it for 26 years, and it’s a long time.
“And to have everyone there and, you know, I wish my dad would have been there to see it because he was involved and he’s the one who got me started in the game, but my mum’s got to be there, and she was there.
“She’s the one that took me to all our junior tournaments in southern California. We’d get up and go play the peewee league, and then an under-age division at Riverside and that’s an hour or hour-and-a-half drive and sometimes stuck on that 91 freeway headed out there…and never, never complain.
“She would keep the score and give the report to my dad when I got home and that to me is special to have her still around.”
Since suffering major injuries in a vehicle accident in February 2021, Woods has not returned to the PGA Tour. Although he stated in November that he does not intend to return to the PGA Tour full-time, he believes his career is not done.
“Most sports, you have to wait five years after you retire from your sport, just to be eligible [for the Hall of Fame]. Our sport’s different, you can still go into the hall and still play and compete out here. There are players that have won on tour after they’ve gone into the hall.
“So it’s very different, but it’s also an acknowledgment that you’ve had a successful career. I feel like I have. But it feels like it is still not over yet.”
Before the induction ceremony, Woods said he plans to visit the Hall of Fame in Florida.
“I would like to see the hall before I go in the hall. That’s where the golf nerd in me comes out, where I like going back and part of history.
“So go in the Hall of Fame and to see that part of the history and see the development of our game and to be a part of that and I will always be a part of that, is very special.”
