Donald Trump the golf with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson

Donald Trump the golf with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson

Trump, who is now at the self-proclaimed "Winter White House", Mar-a-Lago, tweeted on Friday morning that he would be (quickly) playing a round of golf with Woods and current No. 1 golfer, Dustin Johnson.

For his part, Trump pledged to largely forego golf while in office, saying he was "not going to have time to play golf". "Worse than Carter", Trump tweeted in 2014. However, Trump noted that it would be a quick round so he could get back to work on bringing more jobs back to America.

In a break from custom, the Trump White House rarely discloses when the president is golfing, let alone whom he golfs with during frequent trips to courses he owns in Florida, New Jersey, and Virginia.

Trump tweeted that he was set to hit the links - quickly - with golf legend Tiger Woods and the No. 1 ranked pro Dustin Johnson.

A few hours after the tweet, photos of the golf-playing trio popped up on social media.

This isn't just a round of golf between a President and a citizen he admires; it's a round of golf between American business partners who are relying heavily on an investment from the Chinese government. Here's a picture of Tiger with the then president-elect on December 23, 2016.

The US president is spending Thanksgiving in Florida.

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

Trump and Woods have played together in the past, including a round days before this past Christmas.

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

Before he was elected, Trump also took repeated swings at President Obama for his penchant for golf.
