President Trump says he will present Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Trump himself awarded the Medal of Freedom to Babe Ruth, Alan Page, and Roger Staubach just past year, and Barack Obama awarded it to Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Willie Mays, among others, during his presidency. 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.
US President Donald Trump made the announcement on Twitter that Woods would become the 33rd sportsperson to receive the award. The gap between his first Masters win and Sunday's victory was the longest in tournament history.
Trump did not in his tweet specify when the ceremony will take place. His career was derailed for almost a decade after a series of personal scandals and several back surgeries that raised doubts about whether he would ever be able to play again.
So far, Trump has honoured three athletes with medals of freedom: Babe Ruth, Roger Staubach and Alan Page.
The victory for Woods at Augusta represented an epic comeback, almost 11 years after his last victory in a major tournament.
