Is Trump a good golfer?

I never learned the game of golf. I have played video game golf (Golden Tee, Nintendo etc.) so I am familiarity with how the game is played and scored.

Is Trump a good golfer? Somewhat a serious question. How about Obama, Bill Clinton? Ford looked like he would have been the best golfer. Has there been any modern Presidents who didn't play golf? Jimmy Carter played tennis. Did Reagan play golf, I never remember him ever doing so.

Golfing is a sport where business people, legal people, corporate people, rich people, political people of a certain ilk do to socialize and make deals. People get invited to play golf with the President, who could turn that down? I seemed to remember that someone talked Woodrow Wilson to learn the game because this is how to make contacts with powerful people, he learned, but didn't like the game calling it a waste of a walk or something.

If I were the President, I would promote Pinball. Probably would have one in the Oval Office.

So is Trump good at putting the ball in the hole?
Thanks from Twisted Sister

Trump don't play pasture pool. If I was President I would have a snooker table in the White House and teach Aussies how to play and win snooker. Snooker is a money game and when you get snookered, it is worse than being behind the 8 ball.

Golf in America was bread for exclusivity and segregation. The elites owned the real estate and the clubs who chose their members.

Augusta National invited Fmr. Sec of State Condie Rice to join their elite group.

Of course Donald J. Trump is not a good golfer...he has cheated all his life.

I don't remember the exact numbers but I believe I started a thread on it here during the campaign.

Obama is like a solid 7 whereas trump is like a 12. It is said that trump fudges his scorecard, something that if you are a golfer is common especially w/ people that place extra importance on superficial appearances.


A 12 is not bad but a 7 is considered "good"

(a 12 that miscouns their score is probably more like a 16 )

If that helps.

A 12 is not bad but a 7 is concidered "good"

Question? Is "concidered" an alcoholic fruit drink beloved by conservatives? AND if they drink too much of the stuff they are considered "cidered" instead of sloshed?
