The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the nation's highest civilian honor. That's next on the list for Tiger Woods.

Woods' relationship with Trump is well-known.

Woods will join Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Charles Sifford as the only golfers to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The president is an avid golfer who played a round with Woods at Trump's golf club in Jupiter, Florida, in February. President Trump, with whom Woods is reportedly on good terms, was very excited to watch his friend win the tournament and it looks like he's still riding that wave.

Trump did not in his tweet specify when the ceremony will take place.

Woods increased his total of Masters wins to five and boosted his major-championship tally to 15.

Woods' victory marked his first Masters victory in 14 years, after a series of back problems and personal problems threatened to end his career. "What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!" he added later. Three of them - Pro Football Hall of Famers Roger Staubach and Alan Page as well as Major League Baseball legend Babe Ruth - are most famous for their athletic achievements.

The victory for Woods at Augusta represented an epic comeback, almost 11 years after his last victory in a major tournament. It's inspirational to people all around the world, and Tiger fans everywhere celebrated as he donned the green jacket.
