Tiger Woods on Presidential Medal of Freedom: 'This Has Been an Unbelievable Experience'


TIGER WOODS WAS AWARDED the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Monday at the White House.

GolfChannel.com reported:
"This has been an unbelievable experience," said Woods, who then fought back tears as he thanked his family and all those who have supported him throughout the years.
"I’ve battled. I've tried to hang in there," Woods continued. "I've tried to come back and play the great game of golf again. I've been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to do it again …
"The amazing Masters experience I had a few weeks ago was certainly the highlight of what I've accomplished so far in my life on the golf course." 
Woods is the fourth golfer to be awarded the Medal of Freedom, joining Arnold Palmer (2004), Jack Nicklaus (2005) and Charlie Sifford (2014), the latter of whom Woods called “the grandfather that I never had” and named his son after. 
"To have been chosen as the next golfer after Charlie is truly remarkable," Woods said.
