Defying the Trump haters, golf champion Tiger Woods is scheduled to play a round of golf with the President-elect at Trump’s West Palm Beach, Florida golf course on Friday.

Golf Digest reported that Trump, Woods, and two others will tee off at Trump International Golf Club.

Woods has played golf with such a world leader before. In 2013 Woods played with President Barack Obama on Florida’s Treasure Coast in a trip that cost the American people $3.6 million, ESPN reported.

Obama has played many rounds of golf since becoming president in 2009. Early in August, many reporters noted he had reached his 300th round.

Woods, so far, is scheduled for only one tournament for 2017, at the Los Angeles-based Genesis Open in February.
