There are two very special events happening this week in the world of sports. These events are specifically happening in the golf world. The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida is one of the most prominent golf tournaments of the year. But just about as equally weighty, the induction of Tiger Woods into the World Golf Hall of Fame is the other highly anticipated ceremony on March 9, 2022.
World Golf Hall of Fame Inducts Tiger Woods
Now this years’ World of Golf Hall of Fame event is even more significant! Tiger Woods will be introduced by his teen daughter at the evening ceremony. Tiger will be center stage at the World Golf of Hall of Fame, taking place at the PGA Tour Global headquarters facility, and what an honor it will be for all of us to see. How momentous this one will be to witness this big moment between dad and daughter!
The induction ceremony will entail details about the new class members, as well as various personal items, artifacts, trophies, and other memorabilia contributions.
More About the World Golf Hall of Fame
Here’s a brief inside look into the World Golf Hall of Fame. I enjoyed a visit to this monumental place a few months ago. Located in St. Augustine, Florida; the home of golf is on full display in this beautiful building. But this prestigious membership of honor originated in Pinehurst, North Carolina in 1974. It has since been moved to Florida (in 1998), where it is currently located today.
If you love golf and sports, there is no shortage of everything golf here! You will find all sorts of special tributes and history to its members all on showcase for your enjoyment. There are plenty of fascinating, engaging, and interactive exhibits and historical accomplishments from golf’s best right here.
TPC Sawgrass’ 17th Hole Exhibit Experience
Now back to the other thing going on this week. Yes, that big golf tournament they call The Players Championship. Guests can really get a taste of playing that extraordinary 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass. This is an exhibit called “The Players Experience.” Included with your World Golf Hall of Fame admission, you have the opportunity to take a shot on the 132 yard island green which resembles the 17th Hole at TPC Sawgrass golf course.
Historical Golf Exhibits at World Golf Hall of Fame
Some of the exhibits here illustrate the evolution of golf and its equipment. Displays like the first ever clubs or something that looks like a golf club anyway.
I found it so interesting on how the golf ball evolved as well over the years. The early golf balls were comprised of pieces of leather sewn together and stuffed with goose or chicken feathers. It sure does give you an appreciation for the incredible technology today in the manufacturing of a golf ball now.
It’s also fascinating to learn about all the contributions that women made to this extraordinary sport during the 1800s and beyond. You will see the roles that the Morris’ (Tom Sr, and Jr) played in the historical evolution of golf and so much more.
The sport of golf and the industry has grown massively over the years. You see, golf is unique in that it is something that you could say resembles life’s realities. Playing golf gives you lessons in life, literally. Anyone who plays or is part of the golf world understands this completely. So take some time this week and check out the PGA Tour Championship or watch the induction show on television. I know I will be watching, and I plan to attend this amazing golf tournament on the east coast of Florida! Stay tuned for some photos and videos of some of the world’s best professional golfers!
