It’s very rare that Donald Trump says anything worth listening to. The mouthiest man in US politics, a wind bag of the highest order, and purveyor of fine golf courses. But just once amidst all of the baloney, whilst campaigning in New York he says something that just about sums up the Masters.
“That last election should have been won, except Romney choked like a dog. He choked … Let me tell you, Jordan Spieth choked a little bit. But you know what? He’s going to recover. He’s a great young guy and he’s going to recover. Romney can’t recover from a choke.”
We agree. Well, about the Jordan Spieth stuff. Mitt Romney lost the last US Presidential election to Barack Obama. Did he choke? You’ll have to ask wiser men than us on that front. But Jordan did choke on the 12th. You don’t fat a wedge as a professional golfer and try and claim otherwise, but he also showed resilience in bouncing straight back with a birdie. He still came second, fighting his swing all week. So just for once we think ‘The Donald’ has made a valid point.
