It wasn’t exactly Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson facing off against each other in this weekend’s PGA Championship, but House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Donald Trump did play a round of golf in New Jersey Tuesday, reports Politico.
 
The pair hit the links at Trump’s course in the Garden State town of Bedminster.
 
The two men may very well have discussed campaign funding in-between putts and drives, since Boehner is in his annual August fundraising swing, having already raised money for Rep. Scott Perry in Harrisburg, Pa., on Monday.
 
Boehner was also set to make an appearance at an event for Rep. Chris Gibson in Ferndale, N.Y. on Tuesday.
 
Trump has contributed to Boehner-backed groups.
 
He cut a $100,000 check to the Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC linked to Boehner.
 
As for who is the better golfer, that distinction goes to Trump.
 
According to the United States Golf Association’s golf handicap service, Trump’s handicap is a 3.8 while Boehner’s is listed as 9.
 
A source familiar with the outing did not know who won the round.
