Trump: "He will be back"
Trump said Woods would be back.
"And he will be back. I have no doubt about that," said Trump. "He will be back."
"He's definitely made a comeback before," agreed Pavlich.
Just last year Woods made an unlikely comeback on the Pro Tour. After four back surgeries and a series of scandals, the golf legend won his fifth Masters in 2019.
Pavlich asked Trump if he had any special message for Woods as he hoped he was recovering.
"All I would say is get better and get out because we all miss him," Trump replied.
