Monahan, Ridley play golf with President Trump

ATLANTA – This was not your normal weekend game at the club.

For starters, the group included six players, which at most clubs is not allowed, as well as President Donald Trump and some of golf’s most high-profile executives last Saturday at Trump Bedminster in New Jersey.

The president was teamed with PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan and Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley against a threesome that included NBC Sports president Pete Bevacqua, Jay Clayton, the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and Andrew Giuliani, a public liaison assistant for Trump.

“So, the team of Trump, Ridley, and Monahan defeated the team of Bevacqua, Giuliani, and Clayton, 2 and 1,” Monahan said on Tuesday at the Tour Championship.
