President Trump says he will present Tiger Woods with Medal of Freedom

The Presidential Medal of Freedom (along with the Congressional Gold Medal) is the highest award that can be awarded to a civilian in the United States.

Tiger Woods' comeback will ring through the ages.

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

Spoke to @TigerWoods to congratulate him on the great victory he had in yesterday's @TheMasters, & to inform him that because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE, I will be presenting him with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM! In February, he played with Woods and Jack Nicklaus at his course in Woods' hometown of Jupiter, Florida, tweeting a photo of the threesome on the tee box. It captured the attention of the country, and he'll be rewarded with a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

"Well, he's the President of the United States", Woods said.

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.

"Love people who are great under pressure".

Woods won the Masters on Sunday by one stroke, giving him his fifth career victory at Augusta National and his 15th major championship overall.

Trump has previously awarded the medal posthumously to Elvis Presley and Babe Ruth. It was a conquest over physical injuries, personal demons and other problems largely of his own making.
