The former president of the United States is set to play in a significant golf event this week.

According to a report from the New York Post, Donald Trump is set to play in a LIV Golf pro-am on Thursday.

"The former president will play with Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson in Thursday’s pro-am ahead of the first round, a tournament official confirmed to The Post.

That Trump will be paired with DeChambeau and Johnson is hardly a surprise. He has played with them both before in South Florida. DeChambeau’s bag also used to feature Trump’s logo," the New York Post reports.

Golf fans aren't surprised. Trump had previously taken LIV Golf's side in their battle with the PGA Tour.

"Mr. Make America Great Again.. Unless it’s taking blood money from the Saudis so the LIV golfers can play at my course in Bedminster, NJ… lol typical hypocritical POS," one fan tweeted.

"this just makes it so much easier to know who to root against at next years majors," another fan added.

The LIV Golf pro-am is set to take place on Thursday.
