United States of America --
The following will receive the Presidential Medal of
Freedom from President Trump on May 6, 2019:
TIGER WOODS. Eldrick "Tiger" Woods is one of the
greatest golfers of all time.
He is second all-time in both professional victories
with 81 and major championships with 15, including five
Masters, three U.S. Opens, three Open Championships, and
four PGA Championships.
With a record-setting performance in 1997, he became
the youngest person and first African American to win
the Masters, and in 2019, he became the tournament’s
second oldest champion.
Off the course, Tiger established the TGR Foundation,
which has empowered students to classroom and career
success for more than 20 years.
The United States is proud to honor Tiger Woods,
whose tenacity, willpower, and unyielding drive inspire
