According to Chris Solomon from No Laying Up, the president and Rory McIlroy played 18 holes together at Trump International on Sunday. McIlroy, who is currently recovering from a stress fracture to one of his ribs, said this about the game:

“He probably shot around 80,” McIlroy said. “He’s a decent player for a guy in his 70s!”

Though the White House did not confirm that McIlroy was Trump’s golf partner, they did confirm that Trump played a few rounds while at Mar-a-Lago.

“As stated yesterday the President played golf,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the press pool Monday.

“He intended to play a few holes and decided to play longer. He also had a full day of meetings, calls and interviews for the new NSA, which he is continuing today before returning to Washington, D.C. tonight.”
