USGA CEO Mike Whan emphasized that this award transcends playing achievements, acknowledging the enduring influence of Woods’ journey, which has indelibly altered the perception and advancement of golf. Woods, standing in a league of his own, receives recognition not just for on-course accomplishments but also for the profound impact he has made on the game and future generations.

Woods, expressing gratitude for being acknowledged alongside the award’s namesake, Bob Jones, acknowledged the significance of Jones’ integrity in playing the game. He humbly receives the award that bears Jones’ name, appreciating the connection with those who have received it before him, continuing Jones’ legacy.

Woods’ achievements in USGA championships include nine victories, comprising three consecutive U.S. Junior Amateur titles, three consecutive U.S. Amateur titles, and three U.S. Open wins. This recognition aligns him with esteemed individuals who have received the Bob Jones Award in previous years, acknowledging their contributions to the sport.
