A day after Tiger Woods completed his remarkable comeback by winning his fifth Masters tournament, President Donald Trump says he will bestow another honor on Woods.

Tiger Woods reacts as he wins the Masters golf tournament.

Woods will become just the fourth golfer to receive the award. Trump himself awarded the Medal of Freedom to Babe Ruth, Alan Page, and Roger Staubach just previous year, and Barack Obama awarded it to Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Willie Mays, among others, during his presidency.

Previous recipients include Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Jesse Owens, Billie Jean King and fellow golfers Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Orrin Hatch, Elvis Presley, Babe Ruth, Antonin Scalia, Roger Staubach, Miriam Adelson and Alan Page.

Trail Blazers hold off Thunder to win opening matchup
It was the first post-season meeting between the teams since the Thunder moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City. Russell Westbrook had 24 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds for his ninth career postseason triple-double.

Trump did not in his tweet specify when the ceremony will take place.

Charles Sifford, who was the first African American to play on the PGA Tour, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014 by Barack Obama.

Trump's assessment then of Woods' game was spot-on, with the president predicting that Woods would "be winning majors again".

Woods' victory marked his first Masters victory in 14 years, after a series of back problems and personal problems threatened to end his career. He watched the Masters from his Virginia golf club on Sunday. "What a fantastic life comeback for a really great guy!" It's inspirational to people all around the world, and Tiger fans everywhere celebrated as he donned the green jacket.
