Former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning played golf with President Donald Trump Sunday in Virginia before being honored in a Washington gala.
Manning and Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., were guests of the president at Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., for a round of golf and later visited the White House.
On Sunday night, Manning was awarded the Lincoln Medal by Washington’s Ford’s Theatre Society.
The medal is given to a person “who, through their body of work, accomplishments or personal attributes, exemplify the lasting legacy, and mettle of character embodied by the most beloved President in our nation's history, President Abraham Lincoln.”
Manning, who retired from the NFL in 2016 after 18 seasons, will host ESPN’s ESPY Awards in July.
