Trump cheats at golf? Who knew, well dozens and dozens of folks from tiger woods to del la Hoya. Amazing and blatant cheat, poor charecter.

Colluding with Russia? The special counsel says no. Cheating at golf? Well, that’s something else.

From pulling a fast one on Tiger Woods to exaggerating his handicap, Donald Trump’s alleged misdeeds on and around the golf course are the subject of a new book by former Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly, “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump.” Reilly documents dozens of examples of underhanded golf behaviour by the president, cheating he says has become legendary among golfers.

“In golf, he’s definitely not exonerated,” Reilly told The Associated Press. “There’s been dozens and dozens of people that can declare him guilty of cheating.”

One infamous instance came in a 2017 round with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, who is the current No. 1 player in the world. The president’s playing partner, Fox Sports golf analyst Brad Faxon, reported that Trump’s transgressions included putting down a score that didn’t account for two balls he hit into the water on one hole.

“You’ve heard so much about it, it’s almost like you want to witness it so you can tell the stories,” Faxon is quoted as saying.

Outside of formal tournaments, golf is a game of honour in which individual players act as their own referees, keep their own scores and assess themselves penalties for rule violations. Trump’s cheating, Reilly said, motivated him to write the book.

Says Reilly: “I don’t know much about politics, but I know golf and it really offended me, not as a voter or as a citizen — just as a golfer.”

Reilly quotes players who accuse Trump, his caddie and Secret Service agents of regularly moving his golf balls out of difficult lies. At Winged Foot Golf Club in New York, the only non-Trump property where the president is a member, Reilly writes, “The caddies got so used to seeing him kick his ball back onto the fairway they came up with a nickname for him: ‘Pele.”‘ That’s the world soccer star from Brazil.

Sports announcer Mike Tirico says Trump once threw Tirico’s golf ball off the green into a nearby bunker when they played together.

Some of the allegations aren’t new. Boxer Oscar De La Hoya told The AP in 2016 that Trump cheated against him twice in the space of two holes. “Yes, I caught him,” De La Hoya said. “It was unbelievable. But I guess it was his course, so it was his rules.”
