He announced the decision via Twitter, as well as congratulated Woods for his victory.

The medal is awarded to those who have made “especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States." Trump has only awarded the medal to seven recipients so far, making Woods his eighth.

The pair have had a longstanding relationship, having golfed together numerous times before and after Trump’s election in 2016.

Woods is also designing the course for Trump’s golf course in Dubai, which is set to open sometime in 2019.

A date has yet to be set for Woods’s medal reception.
