President Donald Trump To Give Tiger Woods ‘The Medal Of Freedom’

Tiger Woods completed what might be the greatest comeback story in the history of sports. On Sunday, Tiger Woods won The Masters to get his first major victory win since 2008 and his first Master’s win since 2005.

And the whole entire sports world and frankly the whole United States was put on notice including President Donald Trump who has golfed in the past with Woods. And Trump tweeted that he would be giving Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

According to Yahoo News only three golfers have ever been awarded the Presidental Medal of Freedom:

Only three golfers have ever been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Charles Sifford. George W. Bush gave it to Palmer in 2004 and Nicklaus in 2005. Barack Obama gave it to Sifford in 2014. Palmer received his award in his mid 70s, and Nicklaus in his mid 60s; both are widely considered to be two of the greatest golfers of all time. Sifford was the first African American to play on the PGA Tour, and has been called the Jackie Robinson of professional golf. He received his medal the year before he died at age 92.

Congratulations to Tiger Woods.
