Trump to give ‘incredible’ Woods top medal

Donald Trump left shakes hands with Tiger Woods during a ribbon cutting for the new Tiger Woods Villa at the Trump National Doral golf course Wednesday

Tiger Woods' comeback will ring through the ages.

Trump did not in his tweet specify when the ceremony will take place. 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.

There were questions about his ability to win a major tournament, but those have all ended following the Masters victory.

Charles Sifford, who was the first African American to play on the PGA Tour, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014 by Barack Obama.

President Trump says he will present Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Trump, an avid golfer, was photographed on the green in Florida with Woods and pro-golfer Jack Nicklaus in February.

Woods now has 15 major championship wins to his name and is three away from equalling the all-time record of 18 - set by Nicklaus.

"Love people who are great under pressure", he wrote after Woods won his first Masters title since 2005. "What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!" he added later.

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.

The victory for Woods at Augusta represented an epic comeback, almost 11 years after his last victory in a major tournament.
