Rickie Fowler, Jimmy Walker visit Donald Trump at White House during Quicken Loans National

Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker took their Ryder Cup partnership to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on Thursday, visiting President Donald Trump at the White House after the first round of the 2017 Quicken Loans National.

Trump's social media director, Dan Scavino Jr., tweeted a picture of Fowler and Walker visiting the Commander-in-Chief.

Fowler and Walker are seated in the Oval Office with the President. We don't know if they discussed Donald Trump driving all over the greens at his New Jersey club in a golf cart.

Both players are competing at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm, which is about a 30-minute ride (not in traffic) from the White House.

President Trump is a well-known avid golfer, having played golf 31 times since becoming president on Jan. 20, 2017. He has been criticized for the frequency at which he plays, which is at a higher clip than any president since the 1950s.
