BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — Spectators crowding around the viewing booth near the 15th green of the U.S. Women's Open often had their backs turned toward some of the best golfers in the world.

The booth's large windows offered fishbowl-style views of one of the most powerful men on the planet. That's President Donald Trump, also the owner of the golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

People who bought tickets to the championship often found themselves with front-row seats to Trump's glad-handing, chit-chatting, sports watching and french-fry eating.

Usually Trump had his back to the green and the oglers, watching the competition on a TV screen. Every so often, he acknowledged the crowd, waving to them, pointing at those wearing Trump campaign merchandise, and offering a thumbs-up or a first bump.
