Donald Trump owns a lot of golf courses. But is he actually any good at the game?
Apparently, he’s not good. He’s great.
David Owen (one of the best golf writers in the world) played a round with Trump and relayed this report on Trump’s game in this month’s Golf Digest:
He’s also fun to play with, and, despite occasional claims to the contrary, he’s a player. He won the club championship at Trump International three times — most recently, a caddie told me, after a final match against a technically superior golfer, who lost despite almost never missing a fairway or a green. Trump hits his driver very well, and he’s a good ball-striker. His wedge game is poor (although he chipped in twice during our round), but he compensates by being an almost ridiculously good putter, especially on putts that matter.
Beyond the golf, Owen says it’s just fun hanging around Trump:
One appealing thing about hanging with Trump is that you don’t have to worry about embarrassing yourself by doing something crass. You can wear your golf hat indoors, answer your cell phone if it rings and ask what anything costs — assuming he hasn’t told you already.
