AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- Coming off his fifth Masters Tournament championship, Tiger Woods is set to receive a much higher honor soon, according to CBS News.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 15, 2019
No word on if this visit to the White House will include Woods receiving the honor.
