For Donald Trump, the 45th President, Daly said during an event at Maryland Live! Casino, “He really doesn’t keep score when I play with him. We go out and have a good time. We just talk about family and stuff like that. We don’t talk politics.”

He added, “We don’t even talk golf. We just go out and have a good time. Every time I played with him — even when I played with (George W.) Bush, it wasn’t even about that, it was just going out and having a good time and seeing how the family’s doing and just having a relaxed day. That’s what they need. It’s kind of what I need sometimes.”

While the debate for the best was not extremely concrete, the worst man was not as difficult a pick for Daly. He admitted, “(Bill) Clinton couldn’t play at all — Clinton was Mr. Mulligan — but I think Bush Sr. was probably the best that I played with. (George W.) Bush was OK. Just not quite as good as (his dad) was.”
