In an exclusive to Golfweek, Brad Faxon says he did needle President Trump about the lack of a Twitter name-drop regarding their planned Trump Jupiter four-ball.

More importantly, Faxon offers several details from the round regarding Tiger's game and his impressions of playing with world No. 1 Dustin Johnson.

Tiger looked great to me. He was happy and, more than anything, he’s finally pain-free. The issues he had with the back the last couple of comebacks seem to be gone. He looked effortless, he looked free, he had some power. 

I was impressed with how far he hit the ball. Probably on the 10 holes that they were both hitting driver, Tiger hit it past Dustin half the time and Dustin hit it past Tiger half the time. He looked great. I think more than anything, he looked at ease. He was not concerned about swinging hard and going at it with driver. The ball flight, the sound off the club, all of it was right there.
