Golf fans were surprised when they saw the recent tweet by Golf Digest displaying the Presidential golfers and their ranks by handicap. The ranks displayed Donald Trump on the top ranking at 2.8, followed by Joe Biden at 6.7. While Barack Obama was way below at 13. And later in the same queue was George W. Bush at 15.

Nothing was more surprising to the fans than seeing Donald Trump at the top with a handicap ranking better than everyone else on the list. People were in disbelief at the tweet and gave all kinds of reactions to it.

Many fans commented saying Donald Trump had cheated on the golf course and that he was a “fake”.

Others said that the former POTUS couldn’t hit two with the kind of swing he had.

Some even said that there could be a possibility that Trump himself made that list!

But is Trump’s game actually good or is it all just a ruse?

Donald Trump recently played at the LIV Golf tour’s Pro-am tournament where he was paired with his son, Eric, along with Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau. Sources suggest that Trump has a handicap of 2.8 precisely. And it means he has the potential to exercise his golfing skills at 2.8 strokes over par as per his best scores yet. And as of now, his handicap index shows a 70, which means he is capable of going way low.

According to golf legend, Jack Nicklaus, Donald Trump is the best player among all the presidents he had ever played with. Similarly, Bryson DeChambeau also said, “He’s actually a really good golfer,”. Even Trump called himself a great golfer once while talking to Jaime Diaz from Golf Digest.
