Everyone knows that former United States President Donald Trump is an avid golfer. In fact, he spent over 300 days on the golf course during his presidency. Given the amount of time he’s spent on the course over the years, you would expect his game would be pretty polished – but apparently, that’s not the case.
During a recent golf outing at Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles, Donald Trump was filmed taking a shot from the fairway with a pretty short and straight-on target toward the hole. But unfortunately for the former president, Trump absolutely shanked the shot, much to the delight of the crew filming the video.
Sean Kumar shared the clip on Instagram, and you can hear him and his friends laughing about the brutally bad shot.

“Oh, he shanked it. Oh my God, I got that on video,” Kumar can be heard in the background.
But he certainly wasn’t the only one laughing at the shot as the video quickly went viral on social media with plenty of people offering jokes at Trump’s expense.

Lol there is no way he shoots the scores he claims if he has shanks like this. https://t.co/vegbN6bshm

No way I could yank it that far right with a wedge on purpose. https://t.co/DRpYTTVLsY

That’s a massive swing. Had he made perfect contact, the ball would have been over the green. Dude sucks at everything. https://t.co/s693x9bCWb

Absolutely no chance he’s a 2 handicap. Zero

Can you imagine his scorecard vs his play

45, which is coincidentally the angle that this ball took off right at.

It’s unfortunate for Trump, as he was likely seeking an escape from his legal troubles as he faces 37 different criminal counts related to his alleged mishandling of classified documents.
