Tiger Woods gives inside look at golf game with Trump


We know Donald Trump owns a lot of golf courses. But apparently, his skills on the course are good enough to impress a pro.

In a post on his website, Tiger Woods, one of the world's most famous golfers, complimented the president-elect's drive. Woods and Trump played a round of golf in December at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Woods wrote, "What most impressed me was how far he hits the ball at 70 years old. He takes a pretty good lash."

Woods' comments on Trump's golf game were part of a larger post about the PGA pro's goals for his own golf game in 2017. Woods also talked about other recent sports events, including Stanford's win over North Carolina in the Sun Bowl and the injury of Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.

Woods has played golf with former presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, as well as soon-to-be-former president Barack Obama.
