President Trump said Monday he will award pro golf great Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom on the heels of his comeback win at last weekend’s Masters Tournament.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

Woods’ victory on Sunday gave him his 15th major championship win and his fifth Masters title.

Who gives a rat’s ass? Tiger paid her beaucoup and then some for his freedom from her.

Unless you really play this game you cannot begin to understand what a great achievement this was.

Congratulate him, yes sure... but let’s not get carried away!

What exactly did he do other than win golf games to deserve the medal?

Tiger acted like a jerk; he deserved to pay bigtime for both of their futures.

Maybe he’s reformed and happy now—I hope so. And, I hear he played a great tournament.

A Medal of Freedom? Because he won a golf tournament?

We’ve devalued enough honors, let’s not add to the lunacy, Mr. Trump.

Trump claims Tiger has turned his life around, and he probably knows him better than any of us.

Trump should invite Obama to the ceremony. Obama has so much Tiger Woods envy it would be delicious.

His $500 million charity certainly “swings” this in a favourable direction.

I agree that it’s a bit over the top for winning his fifth Masters. Maybe if he got a sixth, matching Nicklaus, then it could be appropriate.

I guess Trump is going after the Tiger Boiz vote. How many photocopier salesmen are there in this country?

Behind every hot chick there's a guy sick up putting up with her sh*t.

That being said, he broke up a family too. Tiger is an ass, no doubt, but there's probably more to the story than the public knows.

Takes two to Tango. I doubt he was doing a bride search looking specifically for a Swedish maid.

Trump is trolling liberals with this. He wants them to attack him for awarding Tiger Woods.

Remember how the MSM reacted after he pardoned boxer Jack Johnson?

I’m glad to see him come back.....his own actions took him down to the depths of hopelessness but he rose above it and came back.......good for him.
