Tiger Woods had a somewhat disappointing showing at The Northern Trust this weekend, finishing the tournament at -4, more than 10 strokes back of the champion.

After his disappointing round, Woods met with reporters. There were some questions about golf, but one reporter - from the New York Times, apparently - had questions for Tiger about President Trump.

Woods was asked about relationship with Trump and the star golfer didn't say much, other than he knew him. He then was asked more about Trump's presidency and, again, Woods didn't give up much.

“Well, he’s the President of the United States. You have to respect the office. No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office,” he told reporters.

Here's the full back and forth:

President Trump just took to Twitter to address Woods' comments.

"The Fake News Media worked hard to get Tiger Woods to say something that he didn’t want to say. Tiger wouldn’t play the game - he is very smart. More importantly, he is playing great golf again!" he tweeted.

Woods has played some great golf this year, but he didn't this weekend. Hopefully he gets back to major-contention form in the coming weeks.
