President Trump says Tiger Woods to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom

Tiger Woods wins the Masters

That's next on the list for Tiger Woods.

Woods' win, which was his first major title victory since 2008, marked a major career comeback for the 43-year-old. Check. A presidential medal of Freedom?

Trump didn't announce a date for that honour, which would put Woods in rarefied company along with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Charlie Sifford, the only other golfers to have received the award. Trump has promised a lot on Twitter, so it remains to be seen if Tiger will actually receive the Medal, but as of now it's been a pretty great week for the golf icon.

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 Presidential Medal of Freedom is the nation's highest civilian honor. 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.

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

And Trump tweeted about the Masters several times over the weekend, writing on Sunday afternoon that Woods was "a truly Great Champion!"

Since taking office Trump has given the award to several athletes including former professional National Football League players Roger Staubach and Alan Page and late professional baseball player George Herman "Babe" Ruth, Jr.
