US President Donald Trump is expected to be invited to Melbourne to cheer on Tiger Woods in the Presidents Cup later this year.

Trump, who is a big player of golf, could be joining thousands of fans for the event which is held from December 9 to 15.

Tiger Woods gained praise from the president on social media after winning this year’s Masters Tournament.

Past presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama also received an invitation to the event.

US PGA spokesman Chris Reimer confirmed there was a chance Australia could see the President before the year was out.

‘As has been customary with past Presidents Cup events, all past honorary chairpersons will be invited to attend the 2019 event,’ he said.


‘Invitations will be sent in the coming months.’

It has previously been speculated that President Trump is likely to make his first visit to Australia in July.
