In golf, Donald Trump is finished – his isolation in the sport will cut to his core – The Telegraph

These exclusions will have cut to Trump’s core, as Maggie Haberman, of the New York Times, reported: “People close to Trump say he’s angry about impeachment. But the reaction to the PGA decision has been a different order of magnitude.” 

Go on, threaten Trump’s liberty, remove him from Twitter, but, please, do not deny him that photo opportunity next to Bryson DeChambeau holding aloft the Wanamaker Trophy. That there was to be the moment when his multi-billion dollar empire (17 courses) would gain the exposure it requires at last to drift somewhere near profit

Yet now his beloved “golf portfolio” is but a collection of massive, albeit wonderfully sculpted, fields building up debt and serving as vicious ridicules to his former importance. 

In golf, Trump is finished. He may get the occasional round with a John Daly or a Pat Perez, but otherwise his great passion will be a one-ball with a few self-loathing security guards. What a way to go.

At least Trump still has his place in the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame for his never-to-be-topped role in WrestleMania V’s “Battle of the Billionaires”. However, in the last week, there have been calls from Mick Foley – “The Hell In a Cell” legend himself” – for Trump to be removed. Soon there will be nowhere in sport for Trump to hang out. Unless he simply waits it out until it is his turn to be Watford manager.
