Donald Trump to award Tiger Woods with Presidential Medal of Freedom

Tiger Woods’s rehabilitation continues with the news that he will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a ceremony next week at the White House.

The medal is one of the highest civilian awards in America, and Woods will be only the fourth golfer to receive one. The other are Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Charles Sifford, the first African American to play on the PGA Tour.

Woods will receive the award from Donald Trump, who is a long-time friend and business partner of the golfer.

Woods pulled off one of the great revivals in sporting history last month when he won the Masters, ending a decade-long drought without a major. Many believed his career was over after a series of serious injuries.

Last month, Trump tweeted that he intended to give Woods the medal after his victory at the Masters. “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!,” wrote Trump.
