Default Who would you rather play golf with: Obama or Trump

As I watched Obama's speech last night and followed Trump's Twitter rage in CAPITALS about the Buzzfeed leak it crossed my mind that Obama would be a great guy to play golf and have a beer with afterwards. Trump, not so much.

Who cares who's the better player or who takes gimmies and uses a foot wedge, I'd take Obama any day.

Why does it have to be an either-or proposition?

I would have both of them in my 4-some, rounded out with Putin.

I'd enjoy playing golf with President Obama, whose intelligence, decency and self-deprecating sense of humour would make the time spent with him a joy.

For my regular foursome, I'd have to agree. But on a one off...I might have to go with Trump. It would be a bit like playing with Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield from Caddyshack), lol.

From what I heard I wouldn't put money on that game.

I do a golf weekend every June with a bunch of guys and one regular is like Al. Nine holes is doable but a full round makes me regret coming. Dinner after is a whole other thing. Nice guy but just...does...not...stop.

From what I see of their personalities, I think it would be wonderful to play with Obama.

Something tells me, playing with Trump would be like playing with Judge Smails.

Ditto for me. Trump is repulsive. I bet he doesn't know how to count either.

Give me a chance to play with Obama.

Eisenhower. At least he would have real stories to tell from real experiences.
Between Trump and Obama - Obama. On a PAR4 Trump would hit a drive, double hit a ball from a bunker. hit 2 chips, 2 putts and tell you he had a bogey.

While a round with Trump might have its share of interesting moments, life's too short to waste the time with a person so.... "repulsive" is a good word.

A round with Obama would be far better for my spirits, would have more interesting - or at least substantive - talk, and he has a great sense of humour.

The Ivanka option has some merit.

I would like to play with Trump. I would love to see his '3 handicap' at work.

It would be fun to play him in matchplay.

Good point. I'm sure deep down he's just awful.

Neither one. Trump would be overbearing and Obama would be arrogant and smug - I doubt that either one of them is good with the common folk. I would much rather go mountain biking with George W at his ranch. Apparently he did a good job building some nice trails.
