Nov. 24 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump revealed Friday that he will hit the links with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson.

Trump posted the tweet at 7:10 a.m., writing: "After Turkey call I will be heading over to Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf [quickly] with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson. Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the USA!"

The tweet had more than 52,000 interactions in four hours.

Johnson is the No. 1 golfer on the planet, while Woods is ranked No. 1,193 in the world. Tiger hasn't golfed competitively since February while dealing with a back injury. He hasn't claimed a victory since Aug. 2013.

In early November, Trump was on the golf course with Japanese PGA Tour pro Hideki Matsuyama and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The trio golfed at the Kasumigaseki Country Club in Saitama Prefecture, Japan, the site of the 2020 Olympic golf competition.

During that round, Trump posted a video of himself swinging a golf club.

"Playing golf with Prime Minister Abe and Hideki Matsuyama, two wonderful people!" Trump tweeted on Nov. 4.

Matsuyama is ranked No. 5 in the world.

Trump posted a round of 68 in October, according to his GHIN profile page. His previous low was a 70 in August of 2013, according to the site.

Woods, 41, has been posting updates on social media, showing his progress after his fourth back surgery. He announced in October that he will compete in the Hero World Challenge from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3
