Embattled sports star Tiger Woods blessed Donald Trump with a round of golf at the president-elect's West Palm Beach, Fla., golf course Friday.

Woods and Trump teed off at Trump International Golf Club along with unidentified two club members, according to Golf Digest, which tweeted a photo of Woods sporting a substantial salt-and-pepper beard.


ESPN reports that Woods recently returned from a 15-month layoff from competitive golf at the Hero World Challenge earlier this month. He topped out at 15th place in the 18-player field.

A passion for golf is one thing that Trump and President Barack Obama have in common, and it may be perhaps the only thing that Trump will best Obama on—he reportedly has a 2.8 handicap as of August.

Speaking of Obama, Woods played a round with him in February 2013.

A day before he hit the links with Trump, Woods tweeted a bizarre photo of himself shirtless and calling himself Mac Daddy Santa.
