Johnson is currently the No. 1-ranked men's golfer in the world.

Trump is staying at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for the weekend. He golfed on Saturday with LPGA pro Lexi Thompson at Trump International Golf Club, and will attend a fundraiser on Sunday afternoon.

The president, an avid golfer who has spent numerous days during his presidency at his own properties, regularly visits Trump International Golf Club during trips to his south Florida estate. Lawmakers, White House staff members and golf pros have all served as playing partners at various times.
