President Donald Trump revealed Woods was to receive America's highest civilian honour after his remarkable 15th major triumph at the Masters.

Tiger Woods will be rewarded with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honour, in a ceremony at the White House next Monday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced the date in a tweet, which read: "President Trump will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to world-renowned golfer Tiger Woods on Monday, May 6 in the White House Rose Garden."

Trump had already revealed in a tweet last month that Woods was to receive the honour in the wake of his remarkable 15th major triumph at The Masters in Augusta.

Woods, who has played golf with the president on a number of occasions, will be the fourth golfer to receive the honour, after Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Charlie Sifford.
