Trump 'Cheats Like Hell' at Golf, Says LPGA Star, Who Questions His Business Acumen

Source: Newsweek via Yahoo

President Donald Trump “cheats like hell” when he plays golf and is not nearly the caliber of player he claims to be, a top LPGA player told a Norwegian newspaper during an interview.

Suzann Pettersen, who has won two majors and 15 tour events and has known Trump for more than a decade, employed an old adage that likens one’s golf game to how one conducts himself or herself in the business world.

"He cheats like hell," Pettersen said, according to golf.com. "So I don't quite know how he is in business. They say that if you cheat at golf, you cheat at business."

The Norway native also said Trump’s drives often look they are flying well off the fairway but somehow stay out of the rough—and suggested he might be paying his caddies to help him on the course.

Well I guess this is no surprise, but a major LPGA star coming out with this condemnation of Trump's sense of fair play is probably quite newsworthy. That the LPGA star is Norwegian just adds more flavor to the news.

1. "So I don't quite know how he is in business"

He went bankrupt 6 times and U.S. banks have refused to lend him any more money. So he goes overseas (Russia) looking for $$$ and then leverages what he owns to buy more.

5. Well of course hes full of shit there as well...

According to the USGA a mere 1.6% of golfers with a registered handicap play ‘scratch’ golf -whereas the individual shoots at or below par every round.

6. Which begs to be addressed:

Let’s even say it’s remotely possible he isn’t full of shit; the sheer amount of golf that is required to maintain that level of skill is tremendous.

Even having surpassed all recent former Presidents rounds in their first year in office; it simply isn’t significant enough to maintain that level of skill and accuracy.

As per usual; he’s full of shit.

7. Zig Ziglar said...

The late sales trainer, Zig Ziglar, said in his training messages "A man who will cheat at golf will cheat at anything." when teaching about business ethics. By the way Ziglar was a conservative.
