President Donald Trump is hoping to see "big crowds" at The Masters in November as he told NBC's Mike Tirico that he plans on seeing sport return to normal over the coming months.

The Masters was scheduled to take place in April but was postponed and pushed back to November, due to the ongoing fight against the coronavirus.

During Sunday's TaylorMade Driving Relief that raised over $5.5 million for charity, Trump was interviewed on the phone by Tirico and although he stated that The Masters is likely to see a smaller number of spectators this year, he'd like to see live sport start to make its comeback.

"We want to get sports back. We miss sports, and we need sports," said Trump.

"You're going to have a Masters pretty soon that'll be a little unusual, that will be slightly less than the usual crowds that you have there. But it's great to be playing.

"And we want to have big crowds for the Masters. I know, right now, that's not what they're planning, but you never know what happens. Things can happen very quickly.

"The first four events back on the PGA Tour are without fans, but after that it will hopefully be back and we really want to see it get back to normal.

"So when you have those tens of thousands of people going to majors, and going to regular golf tournaments, we want them to have that safe experience.

"We don't want them having to wear masks, and to be doing what we've been doing for the last number of months. That's not getting back to normal.

"We want to get back to having the big crowds and they're practically standing on top of each other, and they're enjoying themselves. But in the meantime they do the social distancing, and they've been doing really well."
