Tiger Woods, Donald Trump tee off together Friday in Florida

By

There may not be more power in golf at any time in one place than there is at Trump International Golf Club today.

President-elect Donald Trump and Tiger Woods arrived together at the West Palm Beach, Fla., club to play Friday morning.

Woods has played golf with a president before, teeing it up with Barack Obama in 2013 at The Floridian in Palm City, Fla. The 14-time major champion also recently returned to the competitive game, garnering a promising, if messy, 15th-place finish at the 18-man Hero World Challenge.

Woods and Trump have crossed paths in the past, like when the president-elect awarded Woods the 2013 WGC-Cadillac Championship winner’s trophy at Trump Doral. Woods is also designing a course in Dubai to be named Trump World Golf Club Dubai.

But the 40-year-old did lay a sly but pretty significant burn on Trump when Woods went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in October.

We guess when it comes to one of golf’s greatest players, Trump can take a little ribbing. If they do indeed make it out to the links, remember Mr. President-elect, Woods may still be a bit rusty, but whatever strokes he’s offering, it’d be wise to take them.
