President-elect Donald Trump hit the golf course with Tiger Woods, pool reports confirmed on Friday.

Trump and Woods met at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., a plan that was first reported Thursday by Golf Digest and CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Trump and Woods played 18 holes at the club, along with four other guests, per the pool report.

It’s the first round of golf played by Trump since he was elected president. 

{mosads}Trump, seen as an avid golfer, often criticized President Obama for playing too much golf in office.

“While our wonderful president was out playing golf all day, the TSA is falling apart, just like our government! Airports a total disaster!” Trump tweeted in May.

“The problem with the president, he’s played more than people on the PGA Tour,” Trump said in said in an interview with The Daily Caller during the presidential campaign. “He plays a lot. He’s like a touring professional in terms of the amount of play.”

Obama frequently plays golf on weekends and during his vacations as an escape from the rigors of the presidency. 

He’s played three rounds of golf since arriving in Hawaii to begin his Christmas vacation last week. 

Trump handed out an award to Woods at one of his golf courses in 2013. Woods is also designing a course in Dubai for a Trump golf club. 

When Woods returned to competitive play recently, Trump welcomed him back on Twitter.
