Tiger Denied Congressional Gold Medal
Tiger Woods can say goodbye to yet another accomplishment in his life. The golf great was supposed to receive the Congressional Gold Medal, but that has since been taken away.

According to TMZ, California Representative Joe Baca has decided against his original plan of honoring Tiger with the highest award for a civilian.

Baca released a statement today saying, “In light of the recent developments surrounding Tiger Woods and his family, I will not pursue legislation awarding him the Congressional Gold Medal this session.”

Baca had previously submitted a bill to award Tiger for his “service to the Nation in promoting excellence and good sportsmanship, and in breaking barriers with grace and dignity by showing that golf is a sport for all people.”

Now that most of Tiger’s endorsers have pulled out, our question is, when will Nike follow suit?
