President Trump Praises PGA Tour Pros

President Donald Trump was on hand at The Greenbrier Resort for a Salute To Service dinner on Tuesday, and with the Greenbrier hosting this week’s PGA Tour event, a number of pros were in attendance including Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Keegan Bradley.


Beyond talking about the bravery and sacrifice made by the men and women in the armed forces, Trump also lauded the strength and mental fortitude of the golfers in attendance who would be playing in A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, the official name of the Tour stop this week.


“These are unbelievably talented people,” Trump said. “They’re talented in their mind and in their body. Their muscles are strong but their mind has to be stronger. It’s tough. And these are tough people.

“I’ll be sitting home at the White House, and I’ll be watching and saying ‘I wish I could play like that.'”

A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier began Thursday morning on the resort’s The Old White TPC.
