While speaking to reporters and guests at the ribbon-cutting ceremony at his new hotel and winery in Charlottesville, VA Tuesday, Donald Trump became the first 2016 presidential candidate to shift the foreign affairs discussion toward the developing situation in Scotland.

And by developing situation, I’m of course talking about the the PGA Tour’s Open Championship, taking place this upcoming weekend at St. Andrews.

Trump — an avid golfer — told The Daily Caller that he felt Jordan Spieth has a very strong chance of winning the Claret Jug.

“He’s a great guy, friend of mine. He’s definitely got a chance. I mean, he’s the best putter we’ve seen in quite some time,” said Trump.

The 21-year-old Spieth is currently the No. 2 ranked player in the world, and after winning both the 2015 Masters and U.S. Open, is among the favorites to bring home victory this weekend.

Spieth is only the fourth player in the modern era to win the first two Majors of the year and looks to join Bobby Jones as the only player in history to complete a calendar Grand Slam. (RELATED: Surprise, Surprise Jordan Spieth’s GF Is A MAJOR Hottie [PHOTOS])
