President Donald Trump likes to learn from the best.
Whilst during his Asia trip, the US President joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for a round of golf with Japanese golfer Hideki Matsuyama, during this Thanksgiving holiday, he apparently played around with former professional golfer Jack Nicklaus (and his son), a legend in golfing circles.
Nicklaus, 77 years old now, is widely regarded as one of the best golfers of all times.
On Friday already, President Trump had stated that he would be playing a round of golf with professional golfers Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson (the current world’s number one golfer) at his Jupiter, Florida, course. Trump had tweeted about that round, saying he would play ‘quickly’ before going back to his resort in Mar-A-Lago for a meeting on the US economy.
But the grand prize seems to have come yesterday when Jack Nicklaus was spotted with the US President.

Nicklaus came out as a Trump supporter in an interview with CBS News last year, when he stated having the intention of voting for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, arguing that according to him, the real estate mogul was certain to shake up U.S. politics: "I’ve been in business with Donald Trump for a long time. He has been on board with whatever I want to do, as long as it is reasonable. I like what Donald has done. he's turning America upside down, he's awakening the country."
"Is he as smooth and as politically correct as he should be? Probably not, but he'll learn. He's not stupid. He didn't get where he was being dumb."
