United States president, Donald Trump has announced he will be handing Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom following his superb Masters triumph, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report.
Woods ended his 11-year wait for major glory as he prevailed by one shot at Augusta, donning the green jacket for a fifth time.
The 43-year-old’s 15th major victory was the culmination of a remarkable comeback from a series of troublesome back injuries, and president Trump – himself a keen golfer – was quick to offer his congratulations.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest award a civilian can receive in the United States, given to people who have “made exceptional contributions to the security or national interests of America, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavours.”
