It's tough being the most powerful man in the world, so what better way to relax and unwind than with a 'very fast' round of golf?
Well, it seems as though it was a touch too quick for Donald Trump's caddie, who was seen holding on to the back of the golf cart for dear life as the POTUS sped off down the course.
In a clip that's been shared online, Trump can be seen driving his cart along his Virginia golf course, but it appears as though there wasn't any room for the caddie to sit up top with him.
Instead, he's seen gripping tight hold of the back of the cart, before hopping off and calmly handing Trump his club. Not fazed at all.
Sharing the clip to her Twitter account, NBC White House correspondent Kelly O'Donnell said: "Brief video clip from the president's golf outing. The course is the only place he gets to drive himself. Secret Service positioned nearby. The caddie holding on in back."

The 74-year-old President later hit out at critics, writing: "I know many in business and politics that work out endlessly, in some cases to a point of exhaustion. It is their number one passion in life, but nobody complains. My 'exercise' is playing, almost never during the week, a quick round of golf. Obama played more and much longer rounds, no problem.
"When I play, Fake News CNN, and others, park themselves anywhere they can to get a picture, then scream 'President Trump is playing golf'.
"Actually, I play VERY fast, get a lot of work done on the golf course, and also get a 'tiny' bit of exercise. Not bad!"

This comes just a couple of days after Trump was pictured wearing a face mask for the first time in public.
He was seen visiting Walter Reed military hospital outside Washington on Saturday (11 July) with a navy blue face covering.
As he was leaving the White House, he said there were occasions where face masks were useful.
He told the press: "I've never been against masks but I do believe they have a time and a place.
"I think when you're in a hospital, especially in that particular setting, where you're talking to a lot of soldiers and people that, in some cases, just got off the operating tables, I think it's a great thing to wear a mask."
