Top pro golfer won't play golf again with Trump


I wonder how much Trump cheated when he played with this guy

I can already hear the sound of tiny fingers hunt-and-pecking out a response;

The bugger cheats like crazy, not sure why any pro golfer would play with someone who so blatantly ignores the rules.

Pro golf is rare because they don't have refs like other sports. You are expected to call rules violations on yourself.

most pro golf rule violations are done by accident, not by cheating. For example if you move a leaf and the ball moves. There was a guy who was trying to make the pro tour and he accidentally turned in his score one stroke higher than it actually was which of course did not help him. Did not matter they disqualified him and he did not make the pro tour. that year, he missed his one shot.

He probably cheats against his own family too.

He's the only person I know that cheats at solitaire - and loses.
