Trump Honours Tiger!
It’s really great when the Nation’s Number One Golfer honours the world’s greatest golfer!
After Tiger’s weekend win at Augusta National, President Donald Trump announced that the 15-time major champion would be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Along with the Congressional Gold Medal, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award of the United States, and Tiger will become the fourth golfer in history to receive the medal.
President George W. Bush awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to both Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, while President Barack Obama bestowed the award upon Charlie Sifford in 2014.
President John. F. Kennedy established the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1963, and it is an award which on average is handed out just 11 times per year.
