President Trump has worn many hats in addition to his official “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” cap, including real-estate mogul, reality TV star, and part-time sports commentator. Earlier we looked at Trump’s football and baseball tweets; here we catalog his many musings on golf.

TRUMP LOVES THE LINKS

Shortly before announcing his run for President, Trump posed with golf legend Jack Nicklaus for the grand opening of the Nicklaus-designed Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx.

Almost a year later, in the waning stages of the Republican primary, Trump sat down with Gary Williams of the Golf Channel to promote Trump National Doral Miami during the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Aside from his golf properties and resorts, Trump’s favorite venue by far is Twitter, where he regularly uses golf to feud with other celebrities.

TRUMP VS CUBAN

Trump has waged Twitter battles with a wide range of perceived opponents, including fellow billionaire Mark Cuban. In 2013, Trump asserted that the Dallas Mavericks owner swings his golf club “like a little girl.” Of course, if that “little girl” happens to be Lydia Ko, then Trump’s insult was really a backhanded complement.

TRUMP VS JACKSON

When actor Samuel L. Jackson who said in an interview that he had golfed occasionally with Trump and that the businessman cheats, Donald came out swinging on Twitter.

TRUMP VS OBAMA

Trump once mockingly tried to tempt President Barack Obama into resigning from office with an offer of free lifetime golf at any of his courses. Throughout the latter’s presidency, citizen Trump chastised the President for golfing instead of working in the Oval Office. Now, two years into his own presidency, Trump has shattered all previous records regarding the frequency of the country’s chief executive hitting the links.

TRUMP VS PINEHURST

Trump has even picked a fight with a golf course. During the 2014 U.S. Open, he tweeted out his distaste for the Pinehurst restoration, while simultaneously slipping in several plugs for his own properties.
