Apparently Tiger Woods was on his way to winning a Congressional Gold Medal this year, before all of the stories came out about him cheating on his wife.

California democrat Joe Baca had previously planned on nominating Tiger for the award, "In recognition of 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, he says that plans have changed, after recent developments.

"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"
