Washington: On Monday 6th May, US President Donald Trump awarded the ‘Presidential Medal of Freedom’ to Tiger Woods during a ceremony in the Rose Garden of the White House, Washington. This is the highest nation’s civilian honor. Tiger Woods, 43, is only the fourth and the youngest golfer ever to have received the highest American civilian award.
US President Donald Trump describing the golfer as “one of the greatest athletes in the history of sports.” Mr. Trump said, “we were in the presence of a true legend” who is “also a great person, a great guy”. Tiger Woods thanked his mother, his two children, his girlfriend and his caddy during the ceremony on Monday in the White House Rose Garden. He won his first major in nearly 11 years at last month’s Masters Tournament, a comeback that captivated the sporting world.
Woods’s Masters victory was his 15th major championship. Mr. Trump praised Mr. Woods’ “relentless will to win, win, win. These qualities embody the American spirit of pushing boundaries and defying limits.”
The president seemed particularly impressed by what he called “record setting ratings” on television. He noted that Mr. Woods has now won 81 PGA tournaments and the second most majors.
He also praised him as a “devoted philanthropist,” noting, “That’s how I first met Tiger.” He added, “We are inspired by everything you’ve become.”
Mr. Woods was given standing ovation in the Rose Garden of the White House.
According to ESPN, Mr. Woods is the 33rd sports figure and the fourth golfer to be honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
At the age of 43, he is by far the youngest living sports figure to be honored.
The other golfers were Arnold Palmer (74), in 2004; Jack Nicklaus (65), in 2005; and Charlie Sifford, (92), in 2014. Sifford was the first African American to play on the PGA tour.
Woods started to play professional golf in 1996 at age 20 and has won 15 Majors titles, second only to Nicklaus’ 18 wins.
The Medal of Freedom is America’s highest honor for civilian accomplishment. President Truman first established the medal to honor extraordinary civilian accomplishments related to World War II. President Kennedy re-established the medal by executive order in 1963.
