Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Donald Trump planned Thursday to award golfers Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player and Babe Didrikson Zaharias with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a day after his supporters rioted in the Capitol.
On Monday, Trump awarded House Rep. Devin Nunes with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The White House announced in March that Sorenstam and Player would receive the honor, but the ceremony was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Zaharias was to receive the honor posthumously. The two-time Olympic gold medalist and 10 LPGA major championship winner died in 1956.
Sorenstam won 72 LPGA titles and 10 major championships. Player won 165 times overall, had 24 wins on the PGA Tour and won nine major championships.
