Business Insider reports that Boris Johnson is working on his golf skills.
Johnson hopes being good at gold will help the UK secure a favorable trade deal with US President Donald Trump.
Johnson booked time off "to practice the game at a course near his Oxfordshire home" before becoming prime minister in July.
President Trump is well known for his love of golf.
World leaders like Japanese leader Abe Shinzo have sought to woo him on the course.
Trump insiders told Politico that Trump often hashes out US policy with his golfing partners during 18 holes.
A source told the BBC on Thursday that Johnson's decision to brush up was not related to the US president.
The UK is keen to secure a trade deal ahead of a planned October 31 departure from the European Union.
