Trump to award Tiger Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom

Trump wrote in a tweet this afternoon.

"This is a story for the ages", Joe Asher, chief executive officer of William Hill's USA operations, said in a statement. Mr. Trump has previously bestowed the honor upon Sen. In 2018, he gave medals to football players Roger Staubach and Alan Page and a posthumous award to baseball player Babe Ruth.

Woods' victory marked his first Masters victory in 14 years, after a series of back problems and personal problems threatened to end his career.

The one-stroke win at Augusta National led to an outpouring of support from sports greats and politicians including Trump.

Second, the election confirms that the Trump administration will give both unstintingly and enthusiastically to the Israeli right. It was a much different atmosphere at MSNBC, where Chris Matthews did not take Netanyahu's expected victory well.

Tiger hadn't won a major since 2008, and has dealt with many injuries in between, many doubting if he could ever win again. It's inspirational to people all around the world, and Tiger fans everywhere celebrated as he donned the green jacket. The gap between his first Masters win and Sunday's victory was the longest in tournament history.

Trump, an avid golfer, and Woods have played together in the past including in February when the pair joined golf great Jack Nicklaus for a round at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida.

Mr. Trump owns a dozen golf courses in the US and frequently spends his weekends at his clubs in Florida, Virginia or New Jersey.
