Here’s a first look at Donald Trump and Tiger Woods playing at Trump International in West Palm Beach

The President Elect and Tiger Woods are playing one of the most anticipated rounds of golf of the month, with the 14-time major winner teeing it up with Donald Trump on Friday at Trump International G.C. in West Palm Beach, Fla.

It has been an interesting 24 hours for Tiger — first posting a photo of himself shirtless on social media, describing a Christmas tradition he shares with his children.

After sharing Mac Daddy Santa with the world, it looks like he’s still in character — even as he takes the course with the soon-to-be 45th president of the United States.

We’d have to think that Tiger’s gift from his Ryder Cup teammates — shirts saying “Make Tiger Great Again” — will come up in conversation. It’d certainly be fascinating to hear where else the chatter went during their round.

Trump, whose GHIN is listed as a 2.8, says he hasn’t played much golf over the past six months while on the campaign trail. Both he and Tiger have residences in Palm Beach — and the 14-time major champion won the WGC-Cadillac at Trump National Doral in 2013.

Merry Christmas

Newsmaker of the Year: No. 1, Arnold Palmer

(Editor’s note: GolfChannel.com is counting down the top 10 newsmakers of 2016. Take a look at why each item made our list, along with a collection of their top stories from the year. Click here for the full list and release dates.)

A spectacular full rainbow stretched over Latrobe, Pa., shortly after Arnold Palmer’s ashes were spread at his home club there.

It was like some cosmic wreath being laid over his last resting spot, because, really, flowers weren’t enough to honor this extraordinary icon’s passing.

Palmer was 87 when he died from complications of heart problems on Sept. 25. Fred Couples broke down in raking sobs after calling into Golf Channel’s live telecast the night news broke of Palmer’s death. Couples had to hang up and call back. The ache he felt resonated through the game.

Palmer was more than a great player. He was the game’s greatest ambassador. While he may not have won as many PGA Tour events as Sam Snead, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus or Ben Hogan, he won more intangible treasures. Really, how do you measure all the hearts Palmer won to the game? That’s his real legacy. It is what earned him the nickname “The King.”

Tributes to Palmer came pouring in shortly after his death, from great players to great caretakers of the game.

So many wonderful words were offered up to measure Palmer’s profound impact. We remember some of them here looking back at our top newsmaker in 2016:

“He looked like an athlete, a prizefighter, a middleweight. He opened golf’s windows and let in some air. He lifted a country-club game, balanced it on his shoulders, carried it to the people and made it a sport. He won big. He lost big. People who didn’t follow golf followed him. People who hated golf loved him. He was photogenic in the old newspapers. He was telegenic in the new medium. He was the most asked question called into the night desks on weekends: `What did Palmer do today?’ – Tom Callahan in Golf Digest

Ryder Cup: Reed, Moore lead U.S. to victory

Patrick Reed won an important point, if not the winning one on Sunday, but provided the impetus for the United States’ first Ryder Cup victory since 2008.

Reed defeated Rory McIlroy, 1 up, in a remarkable singles opener at Hazeltine National Golf Club on Sunday, setting the tone for the Americans’ 17-11 victory over the Europeans. It was the widest margin of victory for the U.S. since it won by nine points in 1981.

The winning point was delivered by Ryan Moore, who wasn’t a member of the team until last Sunday evening, when Love made him his final captain’s pick. Moore came from 2 down to Lee Westwood with three to play, eagled the 16th hole and birdied the 17th to square the match, then won the 18th with a par to push the U.S. past the 14 ½-point threshold it needed to prevail.

“Amazing,” Moore said. “Absolutely amazing.”

The victory allowed U.S. Captain Davis Love III to atone for a stinging defeat at Medinah in 2012 in his first go as captain. Moreover, the victory vindicated the Task Force the U.S. assembled in an attempt to end the European domination that saw it winning seven of the previous nine cups.

“I’m just proud of these guys,” Love said. “They had a lot of pressure on them for the alst two years. Every time we picked a guy there was more and more pressure on the team. I’ve never seen a team come together like a family like this.”

Reed and McIlroy collectively had eight birdies and an eagle through eight holes of a match that came down to the par-4 18th. After McIlroy holed a birdie putt at 18, Reed holed a 10-foot birdie putt to secure the victory.

Reed went 3-1-1 in this his second Ryder Cup appearance. Brandt Snedeker, meanwhile, defeated Andy Sullivan, 3 and 1, and finished with a 3-0 record. And Ryder Cup rookie Brooks Koepka defeated Danny Willett, 5 and 4, to finish with a 3-1 record.

Other U.S. winners on Sunday were Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Zach Johnson. Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia, meanwhile, played to a draw in a match in which they made a combined 18 birdies, 10 of them by Mickelson.
