    trying not to make this a political thing, just talking golf game.

    Trump plays a lot and has many courses, but do you believe he could be playing on the Senior tour?






    'He hit the ball on the screws': Sen. Graham details President Trump's improbable 73

    even more unexplainable is that Graham ran out of golf balls while playing pretty well and only brought $5 with him.

    I really think he makes up his scores. I've seen his swing, no way he can shoot 73

    I see him as a Judge Smails kind of player. Foot wedge here and there.

    Mentioned this before, but he also claims to be Club Champion at all his courses.

    I also find that very unlikely.

    He owns the course so he can just declare himself Club Champ. Not that unlikely given Trump's ego.

    Maybe Trump plays it down and adds them all up...idk, but most past Presidents were a little loose with the scoring. Clinton was noted for wanting a mulligan on each side...lol.

    On swings...sounds like it was a little money game sound there's a chance he was in the 73-74 range. I might not be so quick to say he didn't do it just based on that. My father in law to this day has the amateur course record on a course in St. Croix, 68 in a tournament...I played with him the 1st time and I'm looking at his swing on the range warming up and said, no way this guy shot 68.

    About 6 or 7 holes into the round... I started to see...okay, maybe this was possible. He hit every FW and every green and was 1 under. He'd perfected a little low fade he could get it out there 230-250 fairway after fairway....he shot something like 75 that day, but I was surprised his swing held up all day and his short game and putter were even better.

    Maybe Trump has that kind of game...I think I could take him though....lol

    Yes, he could give you 5 a side and still beat you soundly.

    LOL just because a guy shoots 73 doesn't mean he can play the senior tour.

    I am not saying he couldn't beat me. I'm not that good.

    But when the scores for the Senior PGA Championship played at this course earlier this year were averaging 74 or higher and Graham is claiming Trump is shooting that in less than ideal conditions, why wouldn't you think he was on the same level with those guys?

    it is pretty amazing what just hitting fairways can do and maybe that is Trump's game. My dad wasn't the longest off the tee, but he would almost always be around the fairway and his short game was great and he would kick ass most weeks.

    You really think that Trump and Lindsey Graham were playing the same tees that the pros played?

    Yep...if you can hit it 200 and straight, you can play golf on most golf courses from the white tees. Short game is normally what takes the money though.

    Both my playing partners are better iron players than me, but I scramble better...1 putt par or 2 putt par...the score card doesn't know!!

    But, that's 80s golf...if you're shooting 73, you're hitting a fair amount of greens in reg.
