Trump to Present Tiger Woods with the Medal of Freedom Next Week


President Donald Trump will honor Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States, in a ceremony at the White House next week, according to a source who spoke with CNN about the matter.

Last month, Woods won his first major championship since the 2008 U.S. Open. Woods came from back from a two-shot deficit in the final round of play to win the 83rd Masters.

Many have considered Woods’ victory to be the greatest comeback in sports history because of Woods well-documented public scandals, substance abuse issues, and health problems.

Following Woods’ Masters victory, Trump tweeted that he spoke with Woods and informed him that he planned to present him with the Medal of Freedom “because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE.”

According to CNN, “the ceremony’s exact date next week is unknown.”
