Sad news 5 cheating stories about the ex-president Trump lie about how good he is at golf?

Donald Trump loves playing golf. In fact, it felt like he spent more time out on the course than he did in the Oval office during his time as president.

According to trumpgolfcount.com, there was evidence of Trump playing golf on “at least 150 visits” during his four years.

That’s an awful lot, and he also happens to own 17 courses himself.

The magazine Golf Digest was mocked recently for awarding the top position to Trump in a list ranking American presidents by their handicap.

The publication awarded the 45th president the top score of 2.8, while allotting current president Joe Biden the number two slot with a 6.7 score

Now, 2.8 is a very impressive handicap. But the fact is, a lot of people dispute the fact that Trump is that good.

Sportswriter Rick Reilly, for one, doesn’t believe it. The journalist wrote an entire book about Trump cheating at golf called Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump, in which he states: “If Trump is a 2.8, Queen Elizabeth is a pole vaulter.”

Reilly previously told CNN in an interview: “He cheats like a mafia accountant. He cheats crazy. He cheats whether you’re watching or not. He cheats whether you like it or not.”

Perhaps his 2.8 handicap is a little too true to believe after all. These are the biggest cheating stories and times Trump has been accused of lying about his golfing exploits.

Reilly previously told Vox that the president once approached the 2018 winner of the club championship at Trump International, and challenged him to a winner-takes-all game for the title, since the president was unable to attend the actual competition.

Ted Virtue — the true club championship winner, and a financier behind the Oscar winning film Green Book — was playing with his 10-year-old son, and reportedly tried to laugh the challenge off.

According to Reilly, Trump insisted.

Trump is dead serious. Trump says, ‘We’re going to play these last six holes for the championship.’ And Ted’s like, ‘I’m playing with my son, but thanks anyway.’ But Trump says, ‘No, your son can play too.’ So they end up playing,” Reilly told the publication.

The trio reportedly came across a hole with a big pond. Virtue and his son both hit their balls onto the putting green, while Trump hit his ball into the water.

But, Trump then reportedly rushed ahead and decided that the 10-year-old’s ball was his and his caddy then backed him up. The story was first reported in Golf Magazine, but Mr Reilly claimed he was able to verify with at least two other club members.
