President-elect Donald Trump has been a fan of legendary golfer Tiger Woods for quite some time according to his twitter feed.

Today the two men are reportedly golfing together in West Palm Beach at the Trump International course. Tiger made a splash on social media earlier this week when he shared a photo of a Christmas tradition at his house..

Now the two are hitting the links according to Golf Digest:
According to a source close to Trump, the President-elect is scheduled to play golf with Tiger Woods on Friday at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla. The soon-to-be 45th president and former World No. 1 are expected to play alongside two Trump International members.
Woods has also played with Barack Obama a few years ago. Donald Trump might be the best golfer to every occupy the White House though, who knew the President-elect was named one of the top golfers in DC?
Trump, who is listed as a 2.8 handicap in Golf Digest’s most recent ranking of the best golfers in Washington, D.C., has said the demands of his new job will severely limit how much golf he plays. The Trump source familiar with the President-elect’s golf habits says Trump loves the game too much to not use the game as an occasional forum for informal meetings.
Obama never let meetings get in the way of a round of golf. It remains to be seen if Donald Trump will do the same. Trump doesn’t like to lose, but I’m not sure he can continue his winning streak against the world champion Tiger Woods. I guess we’ll find out when Trump tweets about it later.
