Woods has 15 major victories, three shy of Jack Nicklaus' record, and went more than a decade without winning a major while battling personal issues and injuries.

Last August, Woods told Yahoo Sports that he's known Trump "for a number of years", and defended the President when asked about Trump's sometimes tense relationship with professional athletes.

Woods has 81 PGA Tour victories and has made more than $118 million in career earnings.

"I'm one of the biggest Tiger fans ever", Varner said of Woods, who battled back from multiple back surgeries.

Woods reportedly will be Trump's guest next week, to celebrate his Masters win last month. The impact immediately afterwards was extraordinary in terms of ticket sales. Woods has already won a major at Bethpage black, triumphing at the NY course in 2002 when it hosted the US Open.

It is not clear whether Woods is staying on the yacht just yet, though all signs point toward it serving as home base during tournament week.

"Hey, Daniel. I know you're going through a hard time, " Woods said in the video. Hopefully that knock-on effect has a long-term effect. Woods will be grouped with Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari at Bethpage Black. "We always felt there was this excitement that happened in April (after the Masters) and then a bit of a letdown from the golf calendar", he said.

"He's the President of the United States", Woods said.

While he was still focusing on his game, he was trying to figure out who might be ahead of him and what were their situations, where they might make birdie and if he managed 14 under par, how many players can do the same.

The United States president will host Woods, his longtime friend and golfing partner, just three-plus weeks after he ended his 11-year major-championship drought and earned renewed acclaim from around the sports world for his Masters win. Golf Channel reports that ceremony is expected to take place later this year.

"I sent it to him and he sent the greatest reply ever", Varner said Tuesday ahead of the Wells Fargo Championship.

"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple years ago".

"At times, especially 2018, I think a lot of people, especially colored immigrants are threatened by him and his policy - what do you say to people who might find it interesting that you have a friendly relationship with him?"

"I felt like I was still learning my trade a little bit when he was at his best, so he never really took chances away from me, per se".
