Vox has interviewed sportswriter Rick Reilly about his book Commander In Cheat, which made a lot of news a few months ago. A new tidbit from Reilly:
Once a year, every country club has a club championship for the best players. It lasts two or three days, and it’s a big thing if you win it. The best player I know of at this level won eight of these club championships — that’s the most I’ve ever heard of. Trump’s going around telling people he has won 20. But that’s 100 percent a lie.
I actually played with him once, and he told me how he does it: Whenever he opens a new golf course, because he owns 14 and operates another five, he plays by himself and declares that the club championship and puts his name on the wall. But it’s usually just him and Melania in the cart and nobody else. He just makes it up.
You really must hit the link and read about the time that Trump cheated on a golf pro’s ten-year-old son. I’d say it’s unbelievable, but, you know.
Golf match? I’ve won 18 Club Championships including this weekend. @mcuban swings like a little girl with no power or talent. Mark’s a loser
