    Lol trump so wants to be cool.

    He just isn’t. Great story, the Tiger story but like a presidential medal of freedom from Trump means anything.

    Agree with the OP, though it’s still more credible than Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.

    I'm curious as to whether or not that's actually a legitimate Tweet by Trump. If it is then holy fuck I can't imagine putting his neck on the line like that for Tiger.

    I mean it's not that big of a deal but I do find it funny that Trump mentions his comeback in "LIFE". He's the one who decided cheating on his wife with porn stars and getting DUI's was a good idea.

    Someone posted a FB video of Tiger watching a tablet where everyone is saying he's done and he should retired and he'll never win again. It must have felt so glorious to make those people feel like fucking idiots.

    Impressive as hell for an athlete to come back to the top over a decade later

    But absolutely not worth any sort of presidential honor lol

    The Ryder cup is a team tournament, and far less prestigious than the Master's which Tiger just won.

    Tiger Woods is actually the right athletic candidate for this. He has impacted culture in a way few athletes ever have, and sort of changed the way the country views golf. I think he’s a good pick if you’re going with an athlete.

    Kindred spirits, those two.

    The Ryder Cup is a win for the US, not an individual player, which is why I think it would actually be somewhat understandable if Tiger was the one to carry the US team in a hypothetical US Ryder Cup win.

    So? Tiger deserves this. People really dont understand how much Tiger saved golf in the early 2000s.

    Clearly a “diversity” pick.

    You should read this Golf Digest article from 2015

    Tiger Woods is totally, completely, unequivocally, and utterly done

    The stupid award has been given to plenty of morons, so I don't care. Trump can give Ted Nugent a purple heart for all I care.

    Other than Kenny Florian,

    do you think any athlete deserves a medal of freedom?
