The World Golf Hall of Fame announced that Tiger Woods will be enshrined as part of the Class of 2021.

“I am both honored and humbled to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame,” said Woods, who was notified of his impending induction in a phone call from PGA Tour commissioner and World Golf Foundation board chairman Jay Monahan.

“This past year has been such an incredible journey and the support I’ve received from my family, friends and fans has been overwhelming. This achievement is the ultimate recognition to never give up and keep chasing.”

He 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, but hopes to be fit to defend his Masters title next month.
