PGA Tour Awards Tiger Woods Lifetime Achievement Exemption

PGA Tour Awards Tiger Woods Lifetime Achievement Exemption

Tiger Woods will have the privilege of playing in all PGA Tour signature events after he was awarded a special exemption due to “exceptional lifetime achievement.”

The exemption was approved when the policy board met alongside the PGA Tour Enterprises board in Hartford, Connecticut, according to ESPN.

The tour’s memo on the decision read, per ESPN, “An additional sponsor exemption will be created to recognize Tiger Woods in his own category as a player who has reached an exceptional lifetime achievement threshold of 80-plus career wins,” a PGA Tour memo said.

The American is tied with Sam Snead for the most overall victories on the tour, while his 15 wins in majors are second on the all-time list to Jack Nicklaus (18).

Woods has featured in just nine tournaments since a car crash in February 2021, which left him requiring surgery after suffering serious leg injuries.
