The current Masters champion Tiger Woods is ready to visit the White House for a congratulatory reception with President Donald Trump.

Woods earned a stunning one-stroke victory at Augusta last month to win his 15th major championship, his first Masters since 2005 and his first major victory since the 2008 US Open. 
He has played with keen golfer Trump in the past, with the US President posing for a picture with Woods and Jack Nicklaus on course, which was posted to his Twitter account in February. 
According to Fox News, Woods will visit Trump at the White House in Washington DC next Monday for a reception.
Trump tweeted his support for Woods during the final round of the Masters on April 14, as the 43-year-old shot a two-under-par 70 to claim a historic victory following years of injuries and personal problems.
The President described Woods as a 'great champion', and promised to honor him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. 
Woods' reported White House visit could cause controversy, as several athletes have refused to meet with the President previously.
Stephen Curry said he would refuse to attend the traditional Presidential welcome for NBA champions after the Golden State Warriors won the 2017 championship. Trump responded by revoking Curry's invite via Twitter, despite no official communication having been made at that point. 
Philadelphia Eagles also pulled out of meeting Trump at the last minute following their victory at the 2018 Super Bowl.
Sports stars have refused to meet Trump for a number of reasons, primarily his criticism of black NFL players kneeling during the national anthem in protest over racial injustice in the USA.
