Rory McIlroy continued his recovery from a stress fracture to a rib by playing a round of golf with US President Donald Trump yesterday in Florida.

For a third weekend in a row during his presidency, Trump took to the golf course and this time he was accompanied by the world number three.

Speaking to No Laying Up, McIlroy admitted he only got asked to play with Mr. Trump hours before the teed off. The Hollywood native added that Trump "probably shot around 80. He’s a decent player for a guy in his 70’s!"

The pair were joined in a four-ball by Kildare-born Nick Mullen (an agent with ISM), and Trump's friend Rich Levine.

McIlroy is planning to return to competitive action at the WGC-Mexico Championship next month.
