WASHINGTON, United States — Tiger Woods, fresh off his epic Masters comeback win, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday.

Presenting the golfing great with the nation’s highest civilian honor, Trump praised Woods’ “relentless will to win, win, win.”
