Pfff yea right. Rory, Els, and Woods played with him. Pretty easy to say you will deny something when an invite has not even been extended to you. I imagine once an invite is extended most pro golfers would rather respect the office and position of president than turn it down for some grandstanding virtue signalling. 20 years down the line they can say they played with the President, not many people will care that it was the Orange Cheeto, if anything it would add more intrigue to the story because of how polarizing he is.

Obama is a hack.
The prez can play and you never know what will come out of his mouth.

It would be a hoot!

I'd love to hear what comes out of Trumps mouth after a couple beers at the turn.

I might change my vote to Trump, but only if I can borrow a 9i from Elin....

He doesn't drink - which makes his outbursts all the more confusing

Well, HE says he can play, others he has played with tell different stories about his skill level. Especially with score keeping and finding the first ball he hit, despite it and the following three being either OB or in the water.

It's well known in caddy circles that Trump cheats and tries to get the caddies to cheat for him.

Not surprising since there isn't an honest bone in his body

Gonna finally weigh in on this one. Love rassin a cheater and would love to call him on it. Trump, Kim Jong Il and Bill Hicks make up my group.

Make mine a quick nine with Kennedy. Knew how to play. Played well within himself and got to the porch with a post round libation quickly.

I think Trump owns more courses than Obama, so it would probably be free LOL

It's funny that the PGA immediately distanced themselves from Trump, the WGC is in Mexico this year not Doral. Doral has been on the tour for 53 years so it was not something done lightly. Pro's should follow the lead of the pre-eminent golf association and distance themselves from Trump.

Opposite seems to be occurring , 3 of the most prominent players on tour, Tiger, Ernie and Rory , have already all teed it up with Trump in his first few weeks in office.

Let's put it another way. I work with numerous muslim people, how do I interact with them on a daily basis after giving support to a person who has, on national TV, said that he wants to ban them from entering the country and setting up a national muslim registry much like Hitler did prior to WWII.

Oh, I don't disagree that schmoozing with Trump is bad optics. I suppose you'd have to ask Tiger, Rory and Ernie why they made that choice. Perhaps like Howard Stern, who says he is a close friend to DT but disagrees with his policies.

It's not just bad optics and policy, it's deplorable humanity.

Haven't looked but figure they'd be posted. Doesn't seem to be any public backlash against Rors, Ernie and Tiger for teeing it up with Pres. Trump. Ernie took a bit for pulling out of a tourney and playing but nothing on the political side.

Trump.
If I beat him I'll only get banned from his course, whereas Obama might drone me on my way home.

He might own the course, but do you really think he'll pick up (or waive) the tab.... Common man!

Full rack rate for you, plus cart for the privilege of playing with him.
