Former POTUS, Donald Trump, has a keen sense of politics and business. Additionally, he’s an avid golfer himself and enjoys a round with some of the world’s best players for a while. The joy of the game has led to some memorable moments and fine-tuned his skills in the sport. Hence, unsurprisingly, Trump stands beyond any other President on the basis of their golf handicaps.

Donald Trump reigns supreme among former Presidents

In a list curated by Golf Digest, the 45th President of the United States ranked first among other presidents on their golfing skills. The list was sorted on the men’s handicaps, in which Trump won over others by a huge margin with a score of 2.8.

In comparison, the running President of the country, Joe Biden, was ranked second with a handicap of 6.7. Other former Presidents, such as Roosevelt, Obama, and Clinton, among others, followed him on the list. The 27th President of the United States, William Taft, who presided over the country in the early 20th century, was the last name on the list, with a golf handicap of 20.

Trump’s golfing ability has been well-known over the years. His love for the sport has been well-documented…the Trump business empire owning 19 golf properties around the world. The links are well-equipped with world-class infrastructure and are home to some of the most important moments in golf’s history.

However, anything that concerns Trump has a hidden lining. Even though he loves the sport, did you know he once resorted to cheating when playing alongside golf great Tiger Woods?

Donald Trump cheats playing alongside Tiger Woods

Not long after becoming President, Trump invited a bunch of famous names to one of his courses for a roundabout of golf. That list included Tiger Woods, alongside longtime Tour pro and Fox golf analyst Brad Faxon.

Faxon and Trump teamed up together for the day. In the former’s own words, the then-president’s antics were hysterical. “On this one hole, Donald hits his second and fats it into the water,” Faxon recalled. “But he quickly says to me, ‘Hey, throw me another ball; they weren’t looking.’ So I do. But he fats that one into the water, too. So he drives up and drops where he should’ve dropped the first time and hits it on the green.”

Furthermore, Woods and Trump landed on the greens together. While the golf great was on a three for the putt, Trump lied about his score. “Well, Tiger just made a three. What’s that [putt] for, Mr. President?” Faxon asked. “Four for a three,” came the sheepish reply.
