President Trump has had the opportunity to play golf with many famous golfers in the world, including the two legendary golfers Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus. Back in June, Nicklaus appeared on Bloomberg’s “The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations,” where host Rubenstein asked him to talk about his experience playing with former U.S. Presidents. He shared that he once had the chance to play golf with a few presidents and President Trump is the one who left him the most impressive.“Well, the ones I’ve played with, actually Trump is probably the best player,” Nicklaus said. “Trump plays pretty well. He plays a little bit like I do. He doesn’t really ever finish many holes. But he can hit the ball, and he goes out and plays and just enjoys it. But he’s won several club championships. He can play.”
