Former President Trump may have lost the 2020 election to President Joe Biden, but after seeing the state of the president’s golf swing, Trump may be able to even the score on the course.
President Biden was seen playing golf on Sunday morning, and let’s just say he won’t be shooting his age anytime soon.

Now, it’s not every day that your ball goes backwards on the course, but considering his inability to keep his head down — Golf 101 for those unfamiliar with the game — the result isn’t all that surprising. Let’s hope that Biden “plays it where it lies,” as we’re sure the president is a stickler for the rules.
Now, let’s take a look at former President Trump’s golf swing.
He doesn’t take the backswing all the way back, which means he could be sacrificing distance for control, but his head stays down allowing him to keep the ball down the middle of the fairway. It looks like he has “happy feet,” but nothing a few golf lessons at Trump National couldn’t fix.

Considering the amount of golf Donald Trump reportedly plays, he has to be the favorite to shoot a lower score than President Biden. Skins? Matchplay? It doesn’t matter, Trump has the edge.
On a different note, what is it with Democratic politicians and their inability to show even a semblance of athletic ability?
The President of the United States has been throwing out the first pitch at baseball games for decades. President William Howard Taft started the tradition in 1910, and presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Jimmy Carter have participated in the tradition. Some have been wildly successful, while others have barely reached the plate.
In 2014, Barack Obama threw out the first pitch for the Washington Nationals home opener. Unless the eephus pitch is your thing, it wasn’t pretty.
And while President Trump never threw out the first pitch while in office, he’s no stranger to the mound.
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the greatest first pitch in the history of the Presidency. In 2001, shortly after the horrific events of 9/11, then President George W. Bush threw the “strike heard around the world.” With a roaring New York Yankees crowd cheering him on, former President Bush took the mound before Game 3 of the 2001 World Series. The rest is history.
I’m not here to say that Republicans are more athletically inclined than Democrats — clearly being athletic is not a prerequisite of the job — but give me Trump on the course and Bush on the bump any day of the week.
