Tiger Woods news: Hall of Fame induction will be introduced by teen daughter

Woods is scheduled to enter the World Golf Hall of Fame on Wednesday, and it's now been revealed that his daughter, Sam, will be the one to introduce him.

The induction ceremony is set to be held at the PGA Tour's headquarters in Florida on the eve of The Players Championship at Sawgrass.

Alongside Woods, former PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem, four-time major winner Susie Maxwell and renowned course developer and architect Marion Hollins will also be inducted.

Woods, a 15-time major winner is still recovering from injuries he suffered in February last year, after he was involved in a serious car accident in Los Angeles.

His recovery seems to be going well, and Woods featured in the PNC Championship back in December, where he played alongside his son Charlie.

But as the 46-year-old continues to plot a return to the PGA Tour in the near future, it'll be his daughter that is under the spotlight during his Hall of Fame induction.

Sam, born in 2007, is Woods' eldest child aged 14, and has frequently been seen on the course supporting her father. She'll be introducing him in Wednesday's ceremony.

When the news broke of Woods' induction, tributes flooded in for legendary golfer, with Rory McIlroy among those to praise Woods' impact on the sport.

The 32-year-old said, "I feel very fortunate because there is this sort of saying that you shouldn't meet your heroes, and Tiger was my hero when I met him and he lived up to expectations.

"He's been nothing but unbelievable to me and my family and he's been an inspiration for so many of us that are out here playing this golf tournament this week.

"To see him inducted into the Hall of Fame… of course he was going to be a Hall of Famer when he was five years old.

"It's cool that he's here. It's cool that it's happening. And yeah, I think he's at a stage in his life where he probably appreciates all this a little bit more at this point.

"We - all that are playing here this week - have to thank Tiger for where the game is and where the Tour is. I'm pretty sure it's going to be a pretty nice turnout for him tomorrow night."

Woods is yet to announce a potential return to the PGA Tour, but provided his recovery continues on the right track, the 46-year-old remains optimistic about appearing in a handful of tournaments across the year.
