Trump cheats multiple times in a round,  a montage of D2S's moving his ball taking second shots to the green and just poor math skills on his card would be fun. If person cheats when it does not matter they cannot be trusted with anything.

And that is why I would gladly let him golf 100% of the time.

I've worked for guys like him in my time. The only differences that I can see are that he had a large amount of startup-capital to buy-in at a fairly high level, and he was lucky enough to operate in a market where it grew and arguably ballooned regardless of his acumen.

The scoundrels I worked for at various points would hide behind lawyers instead of deliver quality results. They'd botch bids and get mad at the staff when jobs would do no better than break-even or would even cost them money. They'd bring in consultants and then try to shaft them their fees. They'd charge for used items (computer parts in this case) as if they were new parts. They'd source "new" parts from shady sellers that pushed RMA-returned merchandise and ultimately get mad when the parts were highly disproportionately defective. Customer return rate was terrible and only those who stupidly signed long-term support contracts came back. And these people thought everyone was out to get them.

In reality there were a lot of people out to get them, but deservedly so after the treatment at these peoples' hands. Thankfully they didn't start out with a million bucks to set up larger companies, they'd have been even more dysfunctional and would have caused even more widespread harm.

Yup. Golf makes his ham handed cheating obvious. "To find a man's true character, play golf with him." - P.G. Wodehouse

As an aside, I used to have a business partner who was a pretty good golfer (it was a family thing, his brother was a touring pro.) His handicap was 1 or 2. Whenever the subject of handicaps came up, people bragging and such, he'd say 'oh, I don't know, I guess I hit the ball straight most of the time.' and leave it there.

Sounds like a partner that made a little money on a round. 90% of players have a 18+ handicap.  A 1 or 2 is a talented player that gets practice. D2S is probably a 10 and will never get better.

Kim was also a star of the sporting arena. His biography claims that he first picked up a golf club in 1994, at North Korea's only golf course, and shot a 38-under par round that included no fewer than 11 holes in one.

He's signed something like 43-44 actual pieces of legislation. Mostly procedural stuff, housekeeping. Naming Post Offices. Reversing Obama-era regulations.

wax_on: "oh, I don't know, I guess I hit the ball straight most of the time.' and leave it there.

Generally, this kind of understatement as a consistent personality trait, when sincere and not AW-y or sympathy-seeking-y, is the mark of someone who you -want- to have in your circle of friends, as an employee or teammate, etc.

The quiet ones are the ones who know things; the understated are often the competent; the self-confident loudmouthed blowhards are often as ignorant as they are annoying... they just haven't learned they don't know shiat yet, and are thus dangerous.  In at least one recent case, they are marked by absurd hair and a Cheeto-esque complexion.

My dad was a good golfer who played a lot. I've spent a lot of time in the clubhouse. Nobody brags about their handicap. Everyone knows who the players with single digit handicaps are but those players brush it off with comments like the one you quoted.

And everyone knows who the cheaters and blowhards are and nobody wants anything to do with them. I don't know how they get people to play with. I suppose they count on the starter adding them to threesomes.

A country club is an excellent place to make business contacts but nobody wants to do business with someone who cheats at golf. They can't be trusted.

When you're in your 70s, no matter how good you are, you start to lose distance. My dad played into his mid 80s and the ball still went up straight up the fairway, but progressively less far up the fairway. I'm sure Donnie Two Scoops will not react well to losing distance on his long game.
