It’s no secret that President Trump is a golf aficionado. There are dozens of Trump National courses around the country, he plays frequently and he just awarded Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Apparently, Trump put together a noteworthy round last month. Today, he posted a score of 68 to the USGA’s Golf Handicap Information Network for a round he played in April.
Trump, who owns a 1.8 handicap, hadn’t posted a score since October. He reported a 96 for that round.
Sportswriter Leif Skodnick noted Trump’s 68 in the database this afternoon.

According to the USGA's handicap website, President Trump shot a 68 on Wednesday. 👀

According to Golf Digest, Bethpage Black, where the PGA Championship is currently being played, has a 77.5 rating.
That means that the 75.3-rated course where Trump reportedly shot 68 is regarded as being difficult.
Assuming this score is accurate, the President had a hell of a day on the links.
