President Trump says Tiger Woods to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

Trump Says He Plans to Award Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom

Charles Sifford, who was the first African American to play on the PGA Tour, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014 by Barack Obama.

President Trump Monday announced he would be awarding Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the wake of Woods' Masters victory Sunday.

Trump and Woods have been friends for several years, having dined and played golf together on a number of occasions, including February 2 of this year.

The one-stroke win at Augusta National led to an outpouring of support from sports greats and politicians including Trump.

As it stands, the fire has already all but destroyed the roof, and the spire has collapsed into the building. Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo described it as a "terrible fire" and urged people at the scene to stay safe.


Trump didn't indicate when he'll present the medal to Woods.

Trump has presented the Medal of Freedom to numerous athletes since taking office, including Alan Page, Roger Staubach, and a posthumous award to Babe Ruth.

Trump's assessment then of Woods' game was spot-on, with the president predicting that Woods would "be winning majors again".

Woods came back from the golfing wilderness to end an 11-year majors drought with the win at Augusta, Georgia, on Sunday, earning praise from around the world.

"Love people who are great under pressure", he wrote after Woods won his first Masters title since 2005. "What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!" he added later.

Many are calling Woods' victory a personal and professional comeback.
