This month we talk about The Best of USA’s Golfing Presidents.
Donald Trump, the 45th President of the USA, has played more golf in his first month in office than any other former President. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Well, I have always thought that people in positions of power and authority need the stress-relieving powers of a game of golf. But when is a lot too much. When does the golf get in the way of running the country? I think in Donald Trump’s case only time will tell. I think most Americans don’t care how much golf their President plays as long as he is making the correct decisions for the good of the country! Thanks to Swing by Swing, here is a list of 10 golfing Presidents of the modern era!

In honor of President’s Day, we take a look back on 10 past U.S. presidents that found happiness with a golf club in their hands.
Golf and music have always had a unique relationship. Both are forms of art and both, if done right, can be beautiful. However, golf is an escape for those who don’t play it professionally, and some musicians take full advantage, especially when they’re out on tour. For them, it’s a reprieve from the grind. As multiple Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, and actor Justin Timberlake stated, “you have a lot of time on these tours. As Alice Cooper said, you can either drink all day or golf.” In honor of the Grammy Awards, we take a look at 10 of the finest musician golfers.
Snoop Dogg may not be the best golfer in the world, but there’s no doubt he enjoys the game. The 15-time Grammy nominee rapper and actor says he shoots “about 90,” which by all standards, isn’t that bad. Also, he’s a big fan of Tiger Woods. In fact, he went on record saying that golf is “garbage” without the 14-time major winner playing.
