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.”
Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick
She’s reportedly the frontrunner.
Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.
Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.
Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.
President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.
Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.
Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
