Several players from the Washington Nationals went golfing with President Trump on Sunday in West Palm Beach.

The president’s group included Patrick Corbin, Ryan Zimmerman, Trea Turner, Kurt Suzuki, Daniel Hudson and former Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth. Corbin posted photos of the outing on Instagram.

The Nationals, of course, went to the White House days after the World Series, a visit that sparked controversy when Suzuki donned a “Make America Great Again” hat when addressing the crowd.

Corbin and Zimmerman also spoke at the event, with Zimmerman thanking Trump for “keeping everyone here safe in our country and continuing to make America the greatest country to live in the world.” The first baseman handed Trump a personalized Nationals jersey, as well.
