Donald Trump: Tiger Woods Played Less Golf Than President Obama Last Year

President Barack Obama made headlines Tuesday for his impressive 40-foot chip on the 18th hole at Mid Pacific Country Club in Kailua, Hawaii.

One person who doesn’t appear impressed with Obama’s golf game, though, is 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“It was reported (Monday) he played 250 rounds of golf, and he’s going to be in Hawaii, I think did they say for three weeks?” Trump said Monday at a Grand Rapids, Mich., rally, via Golf.com. “Two hundred and fifty rounds, that’s more than a guy who plays in the PGA Tour plays. He played more golf last year than Tiger Woods. We don’t have time for this. We have to work.”

Trump, who owns 17 courses, added: “I don’t have time for that. I love golf, I think it’s one of the greats, but I don’t have time.”

Woods only played 34 rounds of golf in an injury-plagued 2015 season, and according to a CNN report back in August, Obama is close to 250 rounds of golf in his seven years as president. However, neither of them come close to Woodrow Wilson, who played roughly 1,200 rounds of golf during his presidency.
