(SOUNDBITE) (English) TIGER WOODS SAYING "In 97 yes I won the Masters and I ended up hugging my dad and my dad, my mom is no longer here but my mom's here.

I love you mom.

Thank You Sam and Charlie for all your love and support.

I love you guys so much.

Erika thank you." 3.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TIGER WOODS AND WOODS' FAMILY AND GIRLFRIEND ERICA HERMAN STANDING FOR PHOTO STORY: When Tiger Woods won the Masters on April 14, President Donald Trump declared he was going to award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and ordered his aides to schedule the event as soon as possible.

On Monday (May 6), Trump got what he asked for.

At a ceremony in the sun-splashed White House Rose Garden, Trump made the 43-year-old Woods the fourth, and youngest, professional golfer to receive the nation's highest civilian honor, after Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Charlie Sifford.

With 81 PGA Tour victories, Woods is one shy of Sam Snead's all-time record, and with 15 major tournament victories, he trails only Nicklaus, who has 18.

But it was his dramatic Masters victory at Augusta National Golf Club last month, ending an 11-year major championship drought, that capped a years-long comeback from injuries and drama in his personal life, including an arrest two years ago for driving under the influence.

Trump eagerly leapt onto the Tiger bandwagon.

The two have played golf a number of times, most recently with Nicklaus in February at Trump's course in Jupiter, Florida.

At a ceremony attended by several U.S. lawmakers, Trump called Woods "a true legend." "He's a great guy," said Trump.

"He introduced countless new people to the sport of golf, from every background and walk of life.

...Tiger Woods is a global symbol of American excellence, devotion and drive." Woods, wearing a blue suit (not the Masters green jacket) was joined at the ceremony by his mother, Kultida, his two children, Sam and Charlie, his girlfriend, Erica Herman, and his caddie, Joe LaCava.

Speaking directly to his loved ones, Woods added: "In 97 yes I won the Masters and I ended up hugging my dad and my dad, my mom is no longer here but my mom's here.

I love you mom.

Thank You Sam and Charlie for all your love and support.

I love you guys so much.

Erika (Tiger girlfriend Erica Herman) thank you." With the golf world wondering if he has enough high-level golf in him to match Nicklaus' record of 18 majors, Woods left a clue as to his aspirations, calling his recent Masters experience "certainly one of the highest that I've accomplished so far in my life on the golf course."
