Fourteen-time major winner Tiger Woods and world No.1 Dustin Johnson will have US president Donald Trump for company on the golf course today.
Trump tweeted that he will join the pair at Trump National Golf Club in Florida this afternoon – but he added that it will be quick round before he gets back to the day-to-day business of running the US.
After Turkey call I will be heading over to Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson. Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the USA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2017
It is reckoned that this will be the 76th round of the year for the POTUS, who took office as the 45th president of the United States in January.
It will be at least the second time he has teed it up with Woods – who makes his return to competitive golf at next week’s Hero World Challenge – in the past 12 months. Trump has also managed to find time in his busy schedule to join Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama on the course.
The amount of golf the president has been played since taking office has divided opinion. Just look at some of the responses to his tweet about playing with Woods and Johnson…
I thought you said you wouldn't have time to golf? So busy? Nahhh— Queen Elisabeth (@QueenElisabeth) November 24, 2017
Haven’t you been playing golf all week?— IR.net (@IRdotnet) November 24, 2017
There is even a website devoted to keeping track of Trump’s golfing activity - trumpgolfcount.com
Others, however, are taking a different view.
Enjoy some time off Sir! Well deserved!— rains6944 (@rains6944) November 24, 2017
