Golf legend Jack Nicklaus backed Tiger Woods’ comments about respecting the President of the United States in an interview Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.”
Woods shot down questions over the weekend about his relationship with President Trump, urging people to respect the office of the president, while declining to comment on political matters.
At the end of a tournament in New Jersey, Woods was asked if he had anything to say regarding his “friendly relationship” with Trump.

Nicklaus said that Woods, whose 14 major tournament victories are second to Nicklaus’ all-time mark of 18, handled the question well and that he agrees with his answer.
