Trump becomes a golf apprentice to Sorenstam and Gulbis
If you come to New York toting your sticks, you won’t be able to play a round of golf on the course that will host this weekend’s skins game featuring Donald Trump. It’s really a park that is being gussied up to bring attention to Governors Island, originally a coastal fortification for the City.
That being said, “The Donald” will be teaming up with Tom Watson with the hopes of defeating Annika Sorenstam and Natalie Gulbis even though he will be the only amateur on the course.
Trump sports a five or six handicap (depending upon what internet source you read) and will play eighteen holes against the LPGA tour stars but Sorenstam and Gulbis are expected to pony up three strokes per side even though multiple major winner Tom Watson will be Trump’s “go-to” guy.
Trump feels “intimidated", more like one of his “apprentice’s” who grovel at his feet on the weekly television show which entices us to believe that people looking for a job will do almost anything for the almighty dollar.
With the additional strokes, what will it take for the team of Trump/Watson to defeat Sorenstam/Gulbis in a “battle of the sexes"?
Annika Sorenstam proved that she is unbeatable in the right frame of mind as she recently “skinned” Lorena Ochoa in her own hometown. Natalie Gulbis, although never a winner on tour, is fourth in birdies this season and eighth in greens in regulation, two statistics which should make a difference playing a skins game.
Trump will have to hope Watson has a good day and that Sorenstam and Gulbis are too busy signing autographs and waving to fans to ponder the reality that Donald Trump is their competition this weekend.
Thank goodness it’s all for a worthy cause.
