Donald Trump hoping for 'big crowds' at US Masters
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Donald Trump is hoping plenty of fans can attend the Masters.
United States president Donald Trump wants to see "big crowds" at the rescheduled Masters.
The 2020 Masters was moved from April to November due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 316,000 people worldwide.
Trump is hoping Augusta can welcome plenty of fans, despite the United States being hit hard by COVID-19.
"We want to get it back to where it was. We want big, big stadiums loaded with people," Trump told NBC on Sunday.
"We want to have, when you have the Masters, we want to have big crowds. Right now, that's not what they're planning, but you never know.
"Things can happen very quickly."
Trump was speaking as Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson beat Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in the TaylorMade Driving Relief skins match, raising over $5.5million for coronavirus relief.
The USA has more than 1.5 million confirmed cases of coronavirus, with its death toll exceeding 90,900.
