A stunning and hilarious indictment of Donald Trump's lying, cheating and poor sportsmanship on the golf course, and how those behaviours reveal the management style he has taken to the Oval Office - by the New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed sports writer.

"An eye-watering account of the president’s sporting sleights of hand"

“To say ‘Donald Trump cheats’ is like saying ‘Michael Phelps swims’,” Reilly writes... The best parts of this unrelenting hatchet job, however, are those which focus on his game and, by proxy, his character. Trump breaks the cardinal rules of golf. He drives his supercharged cart onto the green. He doesn’t take his cap off at the end of a round. He prefers to win foul than to play fair. “Somebody who wins club championships from the next state is not a gentleman,” concludes Reilly. “Somebody who makes his caddies cheat for them to earn his tip is not a gentleman. Somebody who bullies and manipulates and yells that his courses are the best in the world is not a gentleman… The truth is, the person in golf Donald Trump cheats the most is himself.”
