John Daly pushes back against claims that Trump cheats at golf
Professional golfer John Daly played a round on Monday with President Donald Trump and pushed back against claims that he cheats at the game.
Daly went on to say that another president, Bill Clinton, was a golf cheat.
Daly and Trump played a round against another group at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.
Afterward he was asked by TMZ about the president and his game.
“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.
“It’s for him to get away. And take a reprieve … And then gets back to work.”

He continued that, “It’s just amazing that people call him a cheat in golf. You wanna call a cheat in golf? I’ll tell you, Bill Clinton, he took a Mulligan on putts, chips, when I played with him.”
And as far as who is a better golfer? Daly told TMZ that Trump tops Clinton by several strokes.
“I don’t think Bill Clinton could’ve broken 100. At least the President, Mr. Trump, he can shoot 80. 78 to 84, probably.”
Daly also said Trump was the second best president that he’s golfed with.
“George Bush Sr. was probably the best president golfer I played with. Trump is probably the second best,” Daly said.
He added Gerald Ford wasn’t very good, but said he was funny.
Daly posted a photo from the greens to Instagram and said it was “One of the greatest days of my life.”
