They currently belong to Trump’s former personal caddie, who says Trump used the irons while playing with celebrities, business leaders and golf pros.

“These Trump-used irons are of the utmost rarity and represent the well-documented relationship between the sport of golf and the nation’s commander-in-chief,” said Bobby Livingston, an executive at RR Auction.

Trump’s frequent golf habit has become a point of controversy during his presidency. Before taking office, he repeatedly criticized former President Barack Obama’s golf outings.
