Woods made to wait for Hall of Fame
Tiger Woods won't be inducted into golf's Hall of Fame for at least another ten years after a rule change made him ineligible.
Previously, golfers were eligible for the Hall of Fame from the age of 40, a mark Woods reached last December. However, an alteration to the rules now requires that golfers be at least 50 years of age before they can be added to the list of greats.
"We work very closely with our Hall of Fame Members to ensure all aspects of the induction criteria are shrewd and judicious," said World Golf Hall of Fame president Jack Peter.
"As players continue to elevate their fitness levels and play at a high level for a longer period of time, moving the age requirement to 50 ensures that we are able to celebrate their careers at the proper time."
As a 14-time major winner and legend of the game, Woods' addition to the Hall of Fame seems somewhat inevitable.
Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Annika Sorenstam and Nancy Lopez head the Hall of Fame selection committee, and will meet in May to determine if there will be any golfers inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017.
