American sportswriter Rick Reilly , author of “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump” , writes that US President Donald Trump cheats all the time while playing golf.
In the new book, celebrities and professional athletes claim that Trump is “the worst cheater in the world” when it comes to his favorite sport – golf.
“To say Donald Trump cheats is like saying Michael Phelps swims … He cheats at the highest level. He cheats when people are watching and he cheats when they aren’t,” Sky News cites Reilly.
Reilly submits that ” Trump cheats because that’s how he plays golf. ” In the book, the journalist provides memories of dozens of athletes and stars who played golf with Trump.
Hollywood actor Samuel L Jackson recounts: “We clearly saw him hook a ball into a lake at Trump National, and his caddy told him he found it!”
PGA tour golfer Brad Faxon claimed that he also observed similar Trump behavior. “no matter how far into the woods he hits the ball, it’s in the middle of the fairway when we get there,” said the Norwegian golfer Susanna Pedersen.
In February, it was reported that Trump installed a golf simulator in the White House the size of a room. Also in early 2019, he played with the famous golfer Tiger Woods.
In September 2018, Trump was criticized because he went to play golf during mourning events in memory of Republican Senator John McCain.
