Donald Trump says President Obama plays more golf than Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods and Donald Trump pose with the Gene Sarazen Cup after Woods' victory in the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship in March 2013.


This politics, it’s a dirty business. Now Tiger Woods is being dragged into it.

Earlier this week, Donald Trump took a shot at President Barack Obama for playing too much golf when there are serious issues to deal with in the country and world.

"It was reported today he played 250 rounds of golf and he’s going to be in Hawaii, I think did they say for three weeks?" Trump said at a rally Monday, via "Two hundred and fifty rounds, that’s more than a guy who plays in the PGA Tour plays. He played more golf last year than Tiger Woods. We don’t have time for this. We have to work.


"I don’t have time for that," said Trump, whose real estate holdings include 17 golf courses in the U.S. and worldwide. "I love golf, I think it’s one of the greats, but I don’t have time."

For you fact checkers out there, the 250 rounds by Obama since taking office apparently is an accurate figure. And the hobbled Woods played just 34 rounds in competition in 2015. So, yeah, Trump got it right.

Though arguments about how much vacation a president — any president — takes generally are pretty silly, what would Trump say about Woodrow Wilson? During his presidency, Wilson played a record-setting 1,200 rounds.
