President Trump does NOT cheat on the golf course … so says golf legend John Daly, who golfed with POTUS this week.
Trump’s honesty on the golf course has been called into question many, many times in the past … with former golf partners like Samuel L. Jackson and Oscar De La Hoya flat out saying they witnessed Trump cheat.
Rick Reilly even wrote a book — a freakin’ book — about Trump’s alleged cheating.
But, John Daly — who’s been friends with the Prez for years and golfed with him at Trump National in NJ on Monday — tells TMZ Sports, it just ain’t true.
“It’s funny how these people say, ‘does he cheat?’ Well, when he goes out and plays, if he hits a bad shot, he might hit a Mulligan, but he doesn’t count it when we’re playing the match.”
For those not down with the golf lingo … a mulligan is essentially a redo after a bad shot.
The 2-time Majors winner doubled down, and called out someone else who was in the Oval Office.
“It’s just amazing that people call him a cheat in golf. You wanna call a cheat in golf? I’ll tell ya, Bill Clinton, he took a Mulligan on putts, chips, when I played with him.”
“I don’t think Bill Clinton could’ve broken 100. At least the President, Mr. Trump, he can shoot 80. 78 to 84, probably.”
There’s more … Daly gives us his U.S. Presidents golfer power rankings — and tells us what him and Trump discussed on the links.
Hint: family, ‘Merica and China tariffs.
