Donald Trump played golf with Peyton Manning and Sen. Bob Corker

Donald Trump apparently played golf on June 4 with now-retired, legendary quarterback Peyton Manning and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker at his Trump National Golf Club, Washington, D.C., in Sterling, Va. -- about 25 miles from the White House.

Trump was making his 23rd trip to one of his golf courses since becoming President on Jan. 20, 2017.

It is the policy of the Trump administration to not even acknowledge that the 45th President is playing golf, even if he's on property at one of his golf clubs. Pool reporters are held in place in the indoor tennis bubble at Trump National Golf Club, Washington, D.C., when Trump is on the property. They're not allowed to follow the President around the golf course, so they would not have explicitly known that Manning and Corker were among those playing golf with Trump.

Trump has not been shy about playing golf with celebrities -- particularly athletes -- since taking office. He has played golf with Ernie Els and Rory McIlroy, as well Tiger Woods not too long after winning the election. Presidents often invite a combination of friends, political colleagues (like Corker) and celebrities to come play golf with them.

There's not always a common thread between the people in a President's foursome, but in this case, there is one between Manning and Corker. Manning was a star quarterback at the University of Tennessee when he was in college, and Corker is one of two U.S. Senators from the Rocky Top state.
