Trump didn't indicate when he'll present the medal to Woods.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is among the highest awards given to civilians in the United States. They've played golf together several times, including at least three outings since Trump's election in 2016.

Woods will join Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Charles Siffords among golfers who have received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

New details in child thrown from Mall of America balcony
A witness, Brian Johnson , told WCCO-TV on Friday that he heard a woman scream that her child had been thrown from the balcony. The woman refused, and Aranda allegedly threw a glass of water in her face and a glass of tea that struck her leg.

The president later shared a photo of the group on social media, and a Trump Organisation official noted that Woods and Nicklaus have designed courses for the company. Orrin Hatch, Elvis Presley, Babe Ruth, Antonin Scalia, Roger Staubach, Miriam Adelson and Alan Page.

Trump's assessment then of Woods' game was spot-on, with the president predicting that Woods would "be winning majors again".

Trump appeared to follow the action at this year's Masters closely, tweeting well-wishes to the field on Saturday and encouraging people to tune in when Woods had the lead with just two holes left to play on Sunday. However, a year ago Woods re-established himself as a competitive golfer following a back fusion surgery. But the victory also represented more than his fifth green jacket and 15th major title. Woods won the 2019 Masters on Sunday, ending his 11-year major-championship drought and earning renewed acclaim from around the sports world to the halls of political power and beyond.
