Man deserves it. Hopefully his back acts up so he can't go, but this once in a lifetime, so...

Lots of people, and lots of sportsmen and women especially, have received this award since Bush Jr...so it's all good. I wonder if he's the first person to receive it while still playing?

Tiger Woods isn't a very good person. And here he's eagerly going to allow himself to be used as the president's prop. I just, I can't with Tiger. Have never had much for the dude.

Does no one remember the backlash when Obama gave these out? It's just a strangely named medal, perfectly fine.

I'm happy for Tiger and all, but if it were me, I would've said thanks, but no thanks. Give it to someone more deserving...a teacher, doctor, someone else.

Cause he cheated on his wife a decade ago?
More likely because he refuses to stand up for anything -- aside from being cozy with Trump he famously refused to support other minorities in golf --namely women -- who were being excluded by clubs. He is an amazing and inspirational athlete, but tbh he is a coward
