The scene in the Rose Garden Monday evening, when President Donald Trump lavished praise on Tiger Woods before placing the Presidential Medal of Freedom around his neck, focused only on the eagles and birdies on the golf legend's scorecard.

On Monday, Mr. Trump is set to once again seize Mr. Woods's moment. Though it was expected to be completed by the end of 2017, it has yet to open, and a spokesman for Woods declined to comment to the Times. ". The incredible Masters experience I had a few weeks ago, certainly the highlight of what I've accomplished so far in my life on the golf course".

"He fought all the way back to the summit of golf", Trump said while recapping the golfer's rally from two shots back on the final day of the event. Woods "fought through the awful pain" from his many injuries, and began to reclaim his place, Mr. Trump said.

In response to the attacks, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the president honored Woods due to his athletic pedigree.

Woods thanked his mother and two children during the ceremony.
