World Golf Hall of Fame changes age criteria; Tiger Woods eligible for induction in 2021

Published

on

On Tuesday, the World Golf Hall of Fame announced its amended age criteria for induction which paves the way for Tiger Woods’ initiation in 2021.

In 2016, the World Golf Hall of Fame rose the eligible age from 40 up to 50, but from 2021 onwards, the age limit will now be reduced back down to 45. 

Speaking on the change, Jay Monahan, the PGA Tour’s commissioner and chairman of the World Golf Hall of Fame board stated

“Recognizing the game’s greatest players and contributors is an important endeavor and one our sport takes very seriously. We are committed to regularly evaluating the selection process to ensure we approach it with both historical context and the future in mind.”

As well as turning at least 45 in 2021, the criteria for consideration for induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame next year includes having 15 victories on a player’s home tour or two majors.

Tiger Woods, who turns 45 next December, would appear to be a shoo-in for the 2021 class, while other major candidates include, Jim Furyk, Henrik Stenson, Padraig Harrington and Lee Westwood.

    Tom Weiskopf. A far better inductee than Fred Couples. Did more as a player in less time than most others in the WGHOF. His courses are hands down the best of any player/designer. Honest and misunderstood.
