Most people probably haven’t. I’d heard it but never seen it explained. Well, here you go…
Trump claims to have won at least 20 club championships at his golf courses. What is a club championship? And how many of those has he actually won?
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 the first club champion by himself and declares that the club championship and puts his name on the wall."
See, here’s the thing to us golfers. It’s a self regulating game. You call penalties on yourself. There are no refs or cops (unless you’re pro). So you have to trust that your competition isn’t cheating.
So, don’t play in a tourney if Trump is in it. And don’t let your kid play in the Trump group.
