President Donald Trump, beginning his third full day at his Mar-a-Lago estate this morning, made a rare revelation on Twitter.

Trump and the White House are usually secretive about whether he’s playing golf or who he’s playing with. But today, the president announced he’ll be playing golf “quickly” with Jupiter Island resident Tiger Woods and PGA star Dustin Johnson.

Based on an FAA advisory, the president and Woods and Johnson appear likely to play at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter rather than Trump International Golf Club near West Palm Beach, where the president usually plays.

Trump and Woods played golf last December at Trump International while Trump was president-elect. Since becoming president, Trump’s golf partners have included Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, future NFL Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and professional golfers Ernie Els and Rory McIlroy. Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee have also joined Trump on the links.
