Top-Ranked Golfer: Trump is a Better Golfer than Obama, Clinton

Published

on

In a recent appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, Rory McIlroy, the 8th ranked golfer in the world, said that of the three Presidents he’s played a round of golf with – Donald Trump, Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton – that President Trump was the best golfer.

“If you were going to have a Ryder Cup team, and you get to pair. You want Clinton, Obama, or Trump? Golf wise,” host Dan Patrick asked.

“Golf wise? I don’t think team cohesion would be very good,” McIlroy jokingly responded.

“In fairness, I think Trump is probably the best golfer out of the three,” he continued.

Patrick went on to ask McIlroy how good of a golfer President Trump truly is.

“I think if he played well he could break 80,” McIlroy responded.

If McIlroy’s estimation is correct, that would place Trump in elite company, as only about 2% of all golfers around the world ever break 80, according to surveys.

McIlroy, a 4-time major champion from Northern Ireland, played a round of golf with President Trump in February 2017, receiving backlash from some who believed he shouldn’t play with the President for political reasons.

To his credit, McIlroy has refused to give into the pressure from the anti-Trump voices decrying him for accepting the President’s invitation.

“I get the divisive rhetoric and everything that was said,” McIlroy said last August. “It’s a tough place to be in, it’s a tough position. But again, I was just doing what I felt was respectful and the President of the United States phones you up and wants to play golf with you, you know, I wasn’t going to say no.”
