President Trump hits the golf course with Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson

President Trump hits the golf course with Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson

Websites like Trump Golf Count purport to count the cost of the golf outings and could be one of the many reasons Trump's approval rating has dipped below that of other presidents in the past.

After golf, Trump says he will return to Mar-a-Lago for more work, for talks on "bringing even more jobs and companies back to the US!"

Three-handicapper Trump and 14-time major victor Woods have previously golfed together though.

The president tweeted out that he would be "quickly" playing a round with the former champion golfer Tiger Woods at his Florida course close to the Mar-a-Lago resort. The average time to play 18 holes of golf is approximately four hours and 11 seconds, according to Golfweek.

Trump has visited his golf clubs more than 70 times since taking office - but has largely avoided any mention of the trips. Woods, himself, has said that should his body break down again then that would, very probably, signify the end of his garlanded career.

Captain's assistant Tiger Woods of the U.S. Team looks on during foursome matches of the Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club on September 28, 2017 in Jersey City, New Jersey.

It's unclear exactly which countries he's referring to, but Trump has cited $6 trillion in the past to assess USA spending on conflicts in the Middle East.

Trump and Woods have last golfed together in December 2016.

The threesome played at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla., about 20 miles north of the presidential retreat at Mar-a-Lago.

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

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.
