Trump to award Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom

President Trump said Monday that he had spoken with Tiger Woods following his sensational comeback win in the Masters at Augusta National a day earlier— and promised to award him a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

“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!” the linkster-in-chief tweeted aboard Air Force One while winging his way to Minnesota.

Woods shot a final round score of 70 to finish 13-under par, giving him his fifth green jacket since 1997 but first since 2005, as his career was marred by injuries and scandal.
