American professional golfer Tiger Woods will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame at the PGA Tour headquarters in Florida on Wednesday night.
The 46-year-old has won 15 majors, second only to Jack Nicklaus’ 18, and a joint-record 82 times on the PGA Tour.
Woods is missing this week’s Players Championship at Sawgrass as he continues to recover from the injuries he sustained in a car crash in 2021.
He played with his son Charlie at an event in December but is yet to set a date for his return to the PGA Tour.
The ceremony, which starts at 19:00 local time (00:00 GMT) will see Woods introduced by his daughter Sam and be inducted alongside former PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem, four-time major winner Susie Maxwell and course developer and architect Marion Hollins.
Woods was seriously injured in a car crash in February 2021 and was not seen publicly for much of the year. In late November a social media post of him hitting golf balls under the title “making progress” attracted 7.8 million views on Twitter.
