Johnson is the world’s top ranked golfer and Woods is a former world champion who has been trying to make a comeback after a series of back surgeries.
Jupiter (Florida): US President Donald Trump said on Friday he would tee off with professional golf stars Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, a rare admission from the putter-in-chief that he is taking time out for his favourite pastime.
Mr Trump regularly spends his weekends at a golf course, but the White House typically declines to confirm that the Republican President is, in fact, golfing.
Friday was the third consecutive day Mr Trump has visited a golf course during his Thanksgiving holiday, which he is spending at a resort he owns in Florida. But it was the first-time he has said he was on the greens.
Emphasising that he would first call Turkish President Tayyip Erdog-an to discuss Middle East peace issues — and later work on economic issues — Mr Trump said on Twitter that he would “play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson.”
Johnson is the world’s top ranked golfer, and Woods is a former world champion who has been trying to make a comeback after a series of back surgeries. Mr Trump also golfed in Florida with Woods last December.
