President Donald Trump honored his friend, Masters champion Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington D.C. on Monday, May 6.

Trump announced he would present the nation's highest civilian honor to his business partner Woods, 43, in honor of his Masters victory last month.

Trump called the legendary golfer "a global symbol of American excellence, devotion and drive."

"He's also a great person. He's a great guy," Trump added.

In the audience showing their support for Woods were his girlfriend Erica Herman, his mother Kultida Woods, and children Sam Alexis Woods and Charlie Axel Woods.

Woods is the fourth golfer to receive the Medal of Freedom and the only active golfer to be honored while still playing competitively.

"I tried to hang in there and I tried to come back and play the great game of golf again," Woods said. "I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to do it again, and, the amazing Masters experience that I just had a few weeks ago is probably the highlight of what I've accomplished so far in my life on the golf course."

President Donald Trump was joined by the first lady Melania Trump to pose for photographs with Woods and his family after the medal ceremony in the Rose Garden.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    Tiger ain't never been black...he's just black by descent but one day dem same folks gonna remind him what he truly is...

  • free

    SR, when are we going to see your lil nephew LaMarkle, Prince/Earl of Sussex? is it because meghan is getting hated on or what? i heard there might be picture taking today.

  • GAPeach

    Tiger got as much hair as Donald. Donald just let his grow long and wraps that shit round his head 57 times in the morning to look like that monstrosity up top.

  • Kimocha

    I stopped being impressed by Tiger yrs ago when he made the big announcement that he wasn't blk... As long as he never identifies himself as a blk man then, of course Chief Chump Cheeto don't mind honoring him!

    That dude took a picture with a taco bowl to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. You know he gave Tiger something racist ASF because he thinks that's all he eats.

  • Alextra Ballard

    A Tiger never changes his stripes...ol Cablanasian asz nugga

  • Blak

    Everyone seems to be upset by the fact that a biracial man is proud of his biracial heritage rather then celebrate his victory. No wonder why he does not want to claim being *only* black - he will never win in this community

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Wow...Tiger has aged! Congrats to him!

  • Michelle Peele

    I'm waiting on the name. Did we get a name yet? I'm also gonna need a nickname.

  • Bashi22

    Typically black man once they get their none black woman. All the other family ? is out of the picture.

  • Nunya Business

    Did he say he wasn't black? Not saying he didn't. I just don't remember it. I remember him saying something about being Cablasian )or how ever you spell it). Which is mixture of his ethnicities. I took that to mean that he didn't want to deny his mother's heritage because he is part black and Asian and I guess Caucasian also. Is that so terrible of a thing to say?

  • Mz_Opinionated

    This is a ridiculous looking a$$ picture. I can't even say specifically what is more ridiculous looking about it. Maybe because I don't like Trump or Tiger Woods...that could possibly be it.

  • Kimocha

    Yes, he went outta his way to say that he wasn't blk but that he's Cablasian or whatever you wanna call it...

  • Yui

    It’s time to get the clippers, Tiger.

  • lovelygamour

    he actually deserves this award because when he first came out he did united the country. his snotty attitude means he isn't a role model for life but he is a role model for goals. in his youth he had the goal to be better and lately he played when others told him to retire. he kept going and won.

    assuming that he isn't fond of his black side and the fact that he seemingly has ditched his brothers and sisters--it must be something for him to look in the mirror. I assume his mom uses Asian bleach cream but him and his daughter look African and Asian with no white. he lives as a white man and tried his best but the daughter has her moms frame but nothing else. I hope he has come to turns with all sides of his heritage.

  • lovelygamour

    I agree that he should embrace being everything but the way it was done seemed oft-putting.
    I give him credit for staying the course. they villainized him trying to create an o.j simpson lore but tiger only said one time that he was being treated different because he is dark-(I cant remember what word he used) and he didn't say it until way later.

  • lovelygamour

    they did. his caddy turned on him and everything. but he has stayed the course. you would think he would find better people after being shunned and ridiculed.

  • lovelygamour

    or Indonesian. I know it kills him that he didn't turn magically white and his daughter looks like him.

  • lovelygamour

    I wonder did him and the grandma pass on those colorist views. tiger father seemed awful as well.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LOL you know it’s eating at him. BLACK dna is strong ?? LOL ain’t no hiding.

  • Evillene

    They have reminded him that in their eyes he is black time and time again. He forgives each time. He wont accept that he is black until he is on trial for murdering his white girlfriend/wife.

    Personally, i think he is, and should be, whatever he wants. Seeing him in such close quarters with Dump, i am relieved that he doesnt identify as black. Just know that makes him completely useless.

  • Eileen

    His father did not do a good job in raising him as a black man Yes I said it he is a black man his children are black they have their mama's facial structure but they are black too. his ex wife is all the way blond with black kids plain and simple. Tiger has black siblings from his dad's first marriage I doubt if there is any relationship with them at all! When his pappy died his white friends came down to the funeral to give him support as if he would be there by himself! Really?! he was probably afraid to be with his black siblings! You would have thought he was his fathers only child...smh He just needs to shave his head he is not aging well he is buddhist whatever that may do for him. he struggles, he's lonely even though he is dating the hired help yes I said it! his first wife was the hired help as well they tried to clean it up and call her a model but she was the hired help Princess Diana was a nanny but she was of the aristocratic lineage to be a nanny for a few years is totally fine in their class.Tiger did not have the opportunity to effectively identify with positive black men or even have black friends.Charles barkley and micheal jordon do not count they were part of his problem! He would not look twice at a black women but his nose is wide open for the white hired help or the ww that simply love black dack. Anyway I truly wish him well I really do. I really do.

  • Eileen

    megan would be better received by the aristocracy if she would cooperate and leave hollywood behind. She is married to a lineage, dynasty, history, and legacy there is no time for gender blender bull sh-t or I am a feminist bs she is in a different eco-system and she better get on the train or she will be a diana! Trust me on that the royal family is not going to allow anyone to change their world and that is why its us and them. I can respect that she evidently cannot!

  • R Smith

    LOL

  • Nunya Business

    Yes, I know he said that but isn't he mixed with Black and Asian and apparently Caucasian? To say he was just black would be to deny his mother, no? Just my opinion. I'm just black so I don't know what the struggle might be when your skin tone shows one thing but you don't want to deny your full heritage.

  • datjerk

    I guess

  • Eileen

    when you have interracail kids mixed or whatever things change throughout the entire life of these mixed genes. I have a cousin she is dark her husband is dark but their son came out hi yeller his great grandmother was a white women. I have a gf if you saw her you were thinking she is white both of her parents are light skinned but not your hi yellers she came out white identifes vehemently as BLACK!!! go figure...

  • Eileen

    that seems to be the sop for quite a few of the dumb bruthas

  • The Chosen 1.

    i don't need to.

  • free

    do you think she is trying to be a diana? harry obviously is getting that good-good and doesn't give a fugg. i know if people were overwhelmingly talking dirty about me (this is only what i heard), and my child was not heir to the throne but down some long line of heirs, i would probably cut myself some slack. diana was beloved though, was she not?

  • free

    no name. was it really supposed to be a girl? that's what i heard and that they had a girl name picked out.

  • Michelle Peele

    i didn't know anything bout the gender...just knew something was due to show up at anytime....

  • Sushi

    I tell men often, not to allow a Barber to cut in their hairline, it they will continue to push it back if the barber is not skilled. ...

  • Karen Brady

    Okay

  • Karen Brady

    They look 500 years old between the two of them.

  • Karen Brady

    Capital R Ridiculous and I agree with your whole comment.

  • Karen Brady

    LOL

  • Karen Brady

    I. JUST. HOLLERED. LOUD.

  • the guest

    He's mixed race not black. Not all mixed race people have fair skin and caucasian phenotype. Still mixed race.

  • the guest

    57 times!!!!

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Aye! Where have you been all day ma'am?! While we're here NOT working ??

  • MsChocCookie

    Tiger trying to run away from being black, but his kid are black??

  • GAPeach

    Yup. It's probably long as Rapunzel's. He just keeps wrapping it to try and hide his bald spots.

  • Dun Dilly

    Salute! I have no problems w Tiger.

  • the guest

    Meghan's trying be anti-establishment as a member of THE establishment. Cute. She can be feminist in theory but when it comes down to it she's a monarchy wife and her job is to smile and have babies. She makes Harry deliriously happy, so they tolerate her rebelliousness.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I don't Think a Black Woman would look at him twice. He Doesn't age like a black man for sure.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    He looks like a ghetto, struggling Tiger with struggling peaches and cream.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Yet his skin color is darker or just as darker than any black man. Tiger just doesn't age as well as a black man.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Good he knows!!! Black Doesn't crack like him.

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Why didn’t Tiger get some spray on hair before accepting this award? What’s wrong with Melania’s Smile?

  • GAPeach

    It was after he won the Masters and Fuzzy Zoeller said he didn't want to have to eat fried chicken and watermelon because Tiger was the one that would choose the menu.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Hell his ass is black....is that a spray tan!??!

  • scarlet_n_gray

    He has not aged well. He looks like a goofball with $.

  • Jussjess25

    Hey yall please let white society keep him. That man looks absolutely old and terrible. Its a dam shame cause lord knows the man is talented in golf. What a waste.

  • Jussjess25

    Well said

  • Jussjess25

    He sure dont

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Worst than that lol

  • lovelygamour

    yeah, but he shook off Fuzzy as just being old. after elin chased him with the golf clubs you really could see the turn. some of those white people had worked with him for like 8 years and hated him. trust no one.
