Tiger Woods Inducted Into the World Golf Hall of Fame

Tiger Woods has been one of golf’s shiniest stars for 25 years, and he’s finally getting credit where credit is due. The legendary golfer has been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, adding another major award to his impressive trophy shelf. Woods was joined by his family at the induction ceremony on Wednesday, and the speech by his 14-year-old daughter Sam moved him to tears. He acknowledged the fact that he owes his success to many people who stood by his side, especially as he battled racism and injustice as a junior player. "I didn't get here alone. I had unbelievable parents, mentors and friends who supported me in the darkest of times and celebrated the highest of times. It's actually a team award. All of you allowed me to get here and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart," said 46-year-old golf legend. Woods won his first Masters in 1997 with a record-breaking 12-shot victory, becoming the first black player to do so. This was just the start of his rise to stardom, and he went on to win 15 professional major golf championships and 82 PGA Tour events, becoming one of the most decorated golf players of all time.
