Tiger Woods has chosen his daughter Sam to introduce him to the World Golf Hall of Fame at this week’s induction ceremony in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., it was announced Tuesday. The eldest of Woods’ two children, Sam, 14, will deliver a speech Wednesday at PGA Tour headquarters in a ceremony that has been postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While Woods’ storied career – which is currently on hold as he continues to recover from serious leg injuries sustained in a car accident in February 2021 – has unfolded in the public eye, his children are remained largely in the spotlight. Last December, Woods competed with his son Charlie, who was 12 at the time, and finished in second place at a casual tag team event in Orlando, Florida, where Sam was also on hand to compete in the action.
Born a day after Woods finished second at the US Open on Father’s Day in 2007, Sam was at Augusta National for one of the most memorable moments of her father’s career as she watched him winning the 2019 Masters for his 15th career major title. The victory, which left Woods three major victories short of the all-time mark held by Jack Nicklaus, follows years of surgeries and personal issues that convinced many that the best golfer of his generation was ended.
Woods will be inducted alongside 11-time LPGA winner Susie Maxwell Berning, former PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem and the late Marion Hollins, who broke barriers as one of the few women to develop golf courses in sports history. The ceremony on the eve of the Players Championship will take place in northeast Florida for the first time since 2013, with the most recent ceremonies taking place in California (2019), New York (2017) and Scotland ( 2015).
