Donald Trump Golfs with Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson

US President Donald TrumpĀ“s motorcade leaves Mar-a Lago in Palm Beach Florida US

Trump claims a 2.8 handicap, and his presence in the golf world is substantial; his name adorns well over a dozen clubs, and he's sought to woo a men's major to one of his Trump tracks for years.

President Donald Trump continues to tweet and comment on high-profile sports issues. "Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the US!"

For Woods, the presidential golf game is his most high-profile news since his arrest in August after being found unconscious in his auto with marijuana and four prescription drugs in his system.

Messages left by USA TODAY Sports on Friday morning to Woods' representation were not immediately returned, but on Instagram user posted video of Trump greeting Woods and Johnson at the course.

Trump has already played golf with Woods, Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy and women's world No. 3 Lexi Thompson since his inauguration in January. The site attempts to document whether the president played during such visits, ranking them "yes", "likely" or "probably not".

Trump and Woods have last golfed together in December 2016.

Trump's golfing excursions have come under fire following years of his criticism of predecessor Barack Obama for playing golf while on the job. Woods, himself, has said that should his body break down again then that would, very probably, signify the end of his garlanded career.

On his Twitter account, the number 1 american has indicated that he would be going to the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, to practice briefly with his two partners for the day.

In his run for the White House, Trump often railed about U.S. military commitments in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Trump, the first lady, and their son Barron are now staying at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, until Sunday.
