Changes to Hall of Fame and a Quick Entry for Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods is a shoo-in for the World Golf Hall of Fame next year. The Hall of Fame decided to overhaul its criteria. That includes reducing the age limit for eligibility to 45 the year of induction. The next induction is 2021, and Woods turns 45 at the end of this year. The age limit used to be 40 before it was bumped to 50. Also eligible for next year are Padraig Harrington, Jim Furyk and Lee Westwood. The Hall of Fame also is increasing its media presence in the voting process. It had been a majority of golf administrators.
