President Trump was spotted playing golf Saturday for the second time during his Thanksgiving getaway, this time with former professional golfer Jack Nicklaus.

According to The Associated Press, the president was spotted at his golf course in West Palm Beach, Fla., playing a round of golf with Nicklaus, 77, a legend in the sport widely regarded as one of the best golfers of all time.

On Friday, Trump publicly acknowledged that he was playing a round of golf “quickly” with professional golfers Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson at his Jupiter, Fla., course. 


Trump has golfed periodically since becoming president, but has usually refrained from publicizing the outings. He often criticized his predecessor, former President Obama, for golfing during his tenure in the White House.

Trump’s visit to the golf course on Saturday marked his fourth in four days to one of his Florida courses. He is spending the Thanksgiving holiday at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

Nicklaus said in an interview with CBS News last year that he intended to vote for Trump in the 2016 presidential election, saying that the real estate mogul would shake up U.S. politics.

“I like what Donald has done. he’s turning America upside down, he’s awakening the country,” Nicklaus said at the time. “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.”
