Donald Trump says Tiger Woods to get Presidential Medal of Freedom”

With his win at the Masters on Sunday, Tiger Woods put a cap on one of the greatest individual comeback stories of all time.

President Donald Trump announced that he will be giving golf superstar Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his victory at the Masters yesterday.

Woods is not the first professional golfer to earn the Medal of Freedom. George H.W. Bush presented the medals to Nicklaus and Palmer; Barack Obama to Sifford. He lives in Jupiter, Fla., near Trump's Mar-a-Lago club and has been a frequent golfing partner of Trump's since the 2016 election. Orrin Hatch, Elvis Presley, Babe Ruth, Antonin Scalia, Roger Staubach, Miriam Adelson and Alan Page.

Trump didn't say when a ceremony will be held.

The president later shared a photo of the group on social media, and a Trump Organisation official noted that Woods and Nicklaus have designed courses for the company.

Woods' victory was his first major title since winning the 2008 U.S. Open, and it came 22 years after his first career win at the Masters in 1997.

Mr. Trump owns a dozen golf courses in the US and frequently spends his weekends at his clubs in Florida, Virginia or New Jersey. It's inspirational to people all around the world, and Tiger fans everywhere celebrated as he donned the green jacket. It was a conquest over physical injuries, personal demons and other problems largely of his own making.
