Former President Trump attended the LIV Golf pro-am event at his course in Bedminster, New Jersey on Thursday.
Trump played alongside his son Eric, as well as LIV pros Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau.
After Trump, there was an impressive golf cart squad full of Security and Secret Service members.
BEDMINSTER, NEW JERSEY – Former President Donald Trump attended the LIV Golf pro-am held Thursday at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.
The pro-am comes the day before the start of the first round of the third LIV event at Trump National Bedminster, with Trump playing alongside his son Eric as well as LIV pros Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson.
In addition to the game part, there were also golf carts.
Lots of golf carts.
The overload of extra golf carts was understandable — as a former president, Trump still enjoys the protection of the Secret Service, who were equipped with their own golf carts to escort Trump through his game.
But even though the amount of golf carts in my line of sight was justifiable, it was still overwhelming.
Trump started his day on the course with a trip to the driving range. Note the presidential seal and the No. 1 on his cart.
On the range, Trump warmed up with Bryson DeChambeau, who was one of his playing partners for the day.
Trump also met with LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman before starting his pro-am game.
As Trump left the driving range, a sea of golf carts also escorted him. Like I said, that’s a lot of golf carts.
Yasir Al-Rumayyan, governor of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, joined Trump and company on the first tee.
After the group hit their tee shots, golf carts scattered down the road to find the fairway. Sometimes they moved like a school of fish.
The total number of carts following the group varied throughout the tour. Sometimes I counted up to 20, sometimes up to 13.
Also, not all golf carts were dedicated to Trump. Each player had their own cart, and DeChambeau seemed to have a few members of his team trailing behind him to help keep up with his practice round.
Still, there were plenty of golf carts.
Trump’s bag features a good amount of red, white and blue.
And his golf towel includes a presidential seal and his signature.
After following Trump and his group for most of the front nine, I broke away to follow some other action on the course. Other bands playing the pro-am walked the course.
Although that may have just been a personal preference – there were clearly plenty of golf carts for everyone, no matter how many were with the former president.
