Bryson DeChambeau golfs with the Trump
As another golfer goes over to the dark side
What is it with golfers and Trump? Now Bryson DeChambeau has crossed to the dark side by playing golf with the Trump.
OK, so Trump is a devise figure, and we are a golf website. We get all of that. But when it comes to Trump, why are so many golfers checking in their judgment to play with this dangerous idiot?
There has never been a more divisive President of the United States of America, and whilst he certainly divides his own nation, pretty much the rest of the western world is united against him.
We are writing from the UK, where Trump has not one iota of support, which is quite an achievement in its own way. He’s loathed equally by the Labour Party, the Lib Dems (who they Ed?) and the Tories. The country may be completely divided over Brexit, but it is united in a loathing of Trump.
We are not here to campaign against anyone (other than the R&A when they are having an off day, which happens rather too frequently), but we have to draw a line in the sand when it comes to Trump, and his ability to set the game of golf back by generations. If ever there was a man who reinforces golf as a game of for an elite, then it is Trump.
But does the Pro golfing community get any of this, or care a hoot? No, not a bit. And now the golf scientist, Bryson DeChambeau joins the list of shame.
Now, we would forgive Hideki Matsuyama for teeing it with Trump, as he was playing alongside his own President, Shinzo Abe.
But when it comes to the likes of Dustin Johnson, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Ernie Els, it is totally their own call.
So we just want to keep a tab on the golfers who want to tee it up with the Trump, and put it on the record. And sorry, Lexi, we have to add you to that list as well.
If we have missed anyone, let us know.
