(AP) -- President Donald Trump says his idea of golf getting back to normal is fans who aren't wearing masks and are practically standing on top of each other.

Trump made a brief appearance on the NBC telecast of a charity Skins game on Sunday. It was the first live televised golf since sports were shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The PGA Tour expects to resume its season on June 11 at Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas. It will not have fans for at least a month. Trump says he hopes fans will return after that.
