Greg - who is based in the US - is a longtime friend of President Donald Trump.
The retired sports star reportedly said he hadn't golfed with Donald recently, but did concede he was speaking to the president about coming to Australia in January to see Tiger Woods play in the president's cup.
Fancy seeing you here! Also stepping out at the event was Australian chef Curtis Stone, 43, a former contestant on Trump's Celebrity Apprentice, who was there his American actress wife, Lindsay Price, 42 (pictured)

Other prominent guests included former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
During the dinner, held at the White House's Rose Garden, Trump toasted Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who was there with wife Jenny.
He toasted the Prime Minister, his wife and 'every citizen of Australia.'
'May our heroes forever inspire us. May our heritage always guide us. May our values always unit us. And may our nations always remain the home of the proud, of the brave and the free. I'd like to raise a glass to very special people and a very, very special country,' Trump said.

Mr Trump paid tribute to Australia and Mr Morrison at the dinner by quoting from iconic poem No Foe Shall Gather Our Harvest.
First published in the Australian Women's Weekly in 1940, the poem featuring a stirring call to patriotism was penned by Mr Morrison's great-great aunt Dame Mary Gilmore, who is on Australia's $10 note.
'We are the sons of Australia, of the men who fashioned the land; We are the sons of the women who walked with them hand in hand; And we swear by the dead who bore us; By the heroes who blazed the trail,' Mr Trump quoted from the poem.
In reply, Mr Morrison paid tribute to the warm hospitality from the US President and First Lady during his speech where he praised the US president's 'belief in America and its people'.

'Thank you so much Mrs Trump for the amazing night you've created for us here,' Mr Morrison said.
'Mrs Trump, your kindness, warmth and quiet grace with a welcome to Jenny and I tonight has been very special.'
He also celebrated the long-standing alliance between Australia and America, toasting to '100 years of mateship and to 100 more'.
'Australia will never be accused of indifference in our friendship with the United States,' Mr Morrison said.
'Tonight we are reminded that the United States feels the same way, especially under your leadership.'

Earlier, the Morrisons were greeted by the US First Couple at the entrance of the White House.
A stunning Mrs Morrison shone in a sparkly $1,099 navy dress from Australian designer Carla Zampatti and a matching shawl, with her hair pinned up in a chic up-do.
While Mr Morrison and Mr Trump appear to be enjoying a 'bromance', things appeared somewhat frostier between their wives.
There was an awkward exchange between the two women, who appeared unsure of whether to shake hands or hug before they settled on a kiss on each cheek.
The pair earlier also looked a little uncomfortable as they stood next to each other for a photo and exchanged greetings.
