Tiger Woods Brought To Tears As He's Inducted Into The World Golf Hall Of Fame

Tiger Woods struggled to contain his emotions as he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame by his 14-year-old daughter Sam.

A 15-time major champion, Woods is widely regarded as the greatest to ever grace the sport and has a decorated career spanning three decades.

Now the golfing legend has been officially inducted into the Hall of Fame, welcomed into the elite club by none other than his daughter.

"You're a fighter," Sam said.

"You've defied the odds every time - being the first black and Asian golfer to win a major, being able to win your fifth Masters after back surgeries, and being able to walk just a few months after your crash.

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

During his induction, Woods become overwhelmed with emotion as he broke down in tears while thanking his family for their continued support.

Woods said his late father, Earl, and mother, Kultida, "instilled in me this work ethic to fight for what I believe in, chase after my dreams, nothing's ever going to be given to you, everything's going to be earned."

"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, but two, and more importantly, you don't deserve it," Woods said. "You need to earn it."

"I know that golf is an individual sport. We do things on our own a lot for hours on end, but in my case, I didn't get here alone. I had unbelievable parents, mentors, friends, who allowed me and supported me in the toughest times, the darkest of times, and celebrated the highest of times."

The 46-year-old is still recovering from a horrific car crash which almost claimed his life one year ago.

"Will I come back and play a full schedule? No. That will never happen again," Woods said last month.

"I can play certain events here and there, but on a full-time level, no, that will never happen again.

"I wish I could tell you when I'm playing again. I want to know. But I don't.

"My golf activity has been very limited. I can chip and putt well but I haven't done any long stuff seriously. I'm still working on the walking part.

"Being in a cart, I can do that. But walking a golf course, that's a totally different deal. I've got a long way to go. At this age, you just don't heal as fast, which is frustrating.

"To be out here and play six rounds of golf, I'm not able to do that yet. I'm still working on getting to that point."
