Donald Trump the golfer

Donald Trump was playing golf with Jeff Immelt, the chairman of GE, at an MSNBC event on his Westchester course. On the par three sixth tee, Trump said "I'm the best billionaire golfer in the world."

Immelt came back with "I don't know for sure you're even a billionaire anymore." Then Immelt said "Trump turns around and gets a hole in one."

Who in the world has that kind of luck? To say something in such an arrogant manner about yourself and then to be so lucky and get a hole in one. Only friggin Donald Trump.

I've had a hole in one, but I don't know that I'll ever have a billion dollars. If I had a choice between the shot or the money, you bet I could go through life without ever having a hole in one. At least No Three Putts has a much nicer head of hair than Donald Trump. So take that Mr. I'm the Best Billionaire Golfer in the World.

The odds of him getting a hole in one immediately after saying that fall dramatically when you consider the possibility that he says that every five minutes. :-)

A similar thing happened to me, but on a disc golf course. I was making fun of this 10-year-old that we were playing with and to be a smartass while his dad was in our group, he called me an ace-hole. That was just as I was stepping up to the 184' hole (from the short tees). I proceeded to bang it in the hole for an ace.

I've had 4 aces, and I'll be the first to admit shithouse luck.

Golf Magazine years ago...'bout the time "The Art of Making a Deal" came out...mentioned that The Donald claimed to have a 2 handicap at Winged Foot.

If that's true, he must've been everybody's bumboy, come betting time. heh heh

The hair, the hair, the hair.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
