– Sarkes analyzes Presidential Golfers
– Sarkeses in-depth analysis produces surprising results
Sarkes assigned his crack Sarkes Corner Sports Bureau the assignment to identify the Who’s Who of Presidential Golfers. Specifically, Sarkes wanted to know: Which Presidents played the most rounds of Golf during their Presidency, Who was the Best Golfer of all the Presidents, and Who was the worst Golfer of all the Presidents. The results were surprising.
Who Played the Most Rounds of Golf? “Many People Say” it’s a No Brainer, it had to be the Orange Duffer. Well, not so. The top 4 Presidents who played the most rounds of Golf were:
Coming in at #4 playing 42 Rounds per Year – Barrack Obama
Coming in at #3 playing 75 Rounds per Year – Donald Trump
Coming in at #2 playing 100 Rounds per Year – Dwight Eisenhower
Coming in at # 1 playing 200 Rounds per Year – Woodrow Wilson
Cleary, Presidential Golf crosses Party Lines as 2 of the Top 4 Presidential Golfers were Republican and 2 were Democrats.
Who was the Best Golfer of all our Presidents? While he did not play a lot of rounds of Golf, John F. Kennedy is generally recognized as our Best Presidential Golfer, with the best Swing and lowest strokes per round.
Who was the Worst Golfer of all of our President’s? Hands down, Gerald Ford. It is estimated that Ford, who loved to play in Pro-AM Golf Tournaments, had hit at least 5 spectators, 5!, with his errant Tee shots. Sarkes has no empathy for Ford’s victims. After the first victim, the others should have known better.
Sarkes himself loves to play Golf, but if he was President, he just might have beaten Gerald Ford as the worst Presidential Golfer.
