On Friday morning, a man named Leif Sonic spotted that Trump had filed with the United States Golf Association that he had shot a round of 68 sometime in April of this year. “We have become aware of reports in the media questioning recent scores posted on President Trump ’s account,” USGA spokeswoman Jansen Driscoll said in a statement.
“Both our rounds came during openings of redesigns to his courses and were played casually, with plenty of putts inside five feet over-generously slapped away. He cheats whether you like it or not.” Reilly also told CNN that Trump hit two balls in the water when he played with Tiger Woods and then claimed to have almost beaten the pro.
