Former President of the United States Donald Trump was seen facetiming American golf star Bryson DeChambeau, as the 75-year-old took to his course in Florida at an influencer event.

Golfing social media influencers ‘Long Drivers’ and ‘PGA Memes’ were joined by famous online impressionist Rob Trump, who is most known for his impression of his namesake President Trump.

In Florida however, the impressionist was seen alongside the real man as the pair were seen pictured on the tee at Trump’s Palm Beach course, where influencers ‘Long Drivers’ and ‘PGA Memes’ were taking each other on.

During a number of Instagram story posts by the Long Drivers account, they revealed they were joined by the 45th President at West Palm Beach ahead of an event run by PGA Memes’ named the ‘PGA Memes Challenge’.

As a result, they teased with their 163,000 followers that they were set to hook up Trump on a call with either of Brooks Koepka or DeChambeau, who have notoriously been arch rivals until they publicly made up at last month’s Ryder Cup.

A later post went on to show that it was in fact a smiley DeChambeau who the former President was in conversation with, as ‘Long Drivers’ went on to reveal that Trump was a big fan of the 28-year-old’s big hitting attributes.

DeChambeau – who has eight PGA Tour titles – is renowned for his revolutionary aggressive approach on Tour, and therefore entered the Long Drive World Championship just one week after the Ryder Cup to showcase his exploits further.

Whilst he was unable to secure the world title, the American managed to reach the final eight from 80 original hitters, with his longest strike still recording at a whopping 406 yards.

The ‘Long Drivers’ Instagram feed included an image of DeChambeau on the call with President Trump with the caption: 45 [45th President] telling DeChambino [DeChambeau] by his performance @ProLongDrive World Championships.”

The former US President – who was succeeded by Joe Biden in 2020 – is known for being a huge golf fan and has a number of well-known courses around the globe, including in Scotland, Ireland, Dubai and his home nation America.

The 75-year-old’s connection with DeChambeau will come as no surprise to many, as the 2020 US Open champion has been known to partner up with the Trump name in the past.

The eight-time PGA Tour winner has previously included the Trump golf branding on his bag, whilst also taking part in a series of videos for the company’s YouTube channel.

Following a number of Trump supporters rioting the US Capitol building following the US election result, the USGA decided to withdraw the 75-year-old’s Bedminster course as host of the 2022 PGA Championship.

After the decision DeChambeau said: “It’s unfortunate and it is what it is and I understand it. 

“This is a very tough time in this world right now and I won’t make a comment on any relationships that I have on that.”
