How bad did he beat me? I did better in the presidential race than today on the golf course!

Great fun. Great host.

However, his swing's not too bad, though. . .

:-$

If that dude shot 73 on that course in those conditions then I'm Bobby Jones. I know an asst pro at Bedminster and its pretty well known Trump lies about his scores all the time. He told me a story about watching him dump three balls in the drink on the par 3 16th (i think) and gave himself a bogey. But I've also heard that he has legitimately broken 80 at Bedminster. So who knows.

The tees they supposedly played from have a CR/Slope of 75.4/139. So Trump's handicap differential here would be -1.14 or -1.95 if he shot a 74/73.

It could have happened. He obviously is a solid stick. I thought politics were not allowed on this site anymore.

I've heard that, too, but can't recall the source now.

As long as this thread is about golf, it's fine.

I'm guessing the source of Trump's golf cheating claims is from or affiliated with certain news agencies? :-D

Yeah, I guess this isn't really political thread, except that the recipient of our doubts are both Trump and Graham.

What the heck were both of them doing on a 75.4/139 rated course anyway? Pace of play must have been a nightmare the day they played. :-D

Yep, I'm sure he's honest as the day is long when on the golf course...:whistle:

I vaguely recall some story told by Oscar De La Hoya (the old boxer) about Trump dropping balls in convenient spots. 

Wasn't there some big flap between him and Samuel L Jackson as well.

Seems like a tough ask, but here goes.  Hey look, here's a website solely about the president golfing:

Let's see how truthful he is in everyday life:

If you don't want to click, I'll just say that he over 2/3 of the time.  But I agree with @Ernest Jones, I highly doubt that wouldn't carry over to his golf game.

Many playing partners have said he takes a lot of the usual weekend hacker liberties-- breakfast balls, lie improvements, etc.

He's still a pretty good golfer, though. I think Ernie Els said he thought he would be a high single digit handicapper if he played legit.
