Rory McIlroy Played Golf With Donald Trump This Weekend

Rory McIlroy teed it up with the president of the United States, Donald Trump on Sunday morning at Trump International. McIlroy rode in the cart for all 18 holes with the president, and told No Laying Up the following:

“He probably shot around 80. He’s a decent player for a guy in his 70’s!”

This picture was posted by Clear Sports, which also shows Paul O’Neill and Clear Sports CEO Garry Singer, although Rory confirmed to No Laying Up that they were not a part of the grouping. The four ball was rounded out by Nick Mullen from ISM, and Rich Levine (a friend of Trump’s).

Rory said that he did not get the call to play until Saturday night asking if he would play Sunday morning. McIlroy is nursing a stress fracture in his rib, and was not planning to play golf until the following weekend, but said he had to make an exception for the president.

McIlroy also said that he played off the forward tees but did hit some drivers, and that TrackMan was telling him that his swing was nearly at full speed. Rory also confirmed to No Laying Up that his rehab is going according to schedule, and he plans to play in the WGC-Mexico Championship next week as scheduled.

UPDATE:

Apparently this news contradicts a previous statement made by White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She told reporters on Sunday that the president “played a couple of holes” earlier that day but that she didn’t believe it was “a full round.”

UPDATE #2:

The White House has issued a statement regarding this post:

Asked if Trump played a full round with McIlroy, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “He intended to play a few holes and decided to play longer.”

  1. He even lies about playing golf! Asked Rory Saturday night yo play with Trump…. trump used Rory as a prop…..
    DO YPUR FRIGGIN JOB TRUMP & I’TS NOT PLAYING GOLF!!!

    1. When Trump gets to the number of rounds Barry played, then you can bitch. Until then, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. S’all good, man!

  2. Wow THE MSM (Main Stream Media) is desperate. What a bunch of nuts! Alternative news if you want the truth… Good for Rory! What a joke to say that Rory makes a bad call? Way f%÷king off base. Typical though. Wish i could make bad calls like that. Fyi… How could so many people be fooled by H Clinton? Chronic liar proven “under oath”. YouTube Trey Gowdy and grow up!

    1. I’m sure Donald had you on speed dial as an alternate. In time, Rory will learn he made a mistake. How big will depend on your President Chump.

    2. Has nothing to do with Clinton. He’s the president for all Americans, not just those who voted for him. He got on Obama for playing golf much less often and he’s been on the course more than any normal working person let alone the president. I don’t expect him to be a robot but this is worthy of criticism.

  3. he even cheats on his handicap and hasn’t put a score in since 2016 and only one that year. come on, golf is a game of integrity and he has none.

    1. Some people just enjoy the game, and don’t post scores. Who cares. It’s not like he’s out there gambling. Dude shot 80. Solid round for a 71 year old.

  4. It seems there are competing stories here. Rory indicates Trump shot “around 80”. White House indicates he was only playing a few holes.
    From what I have seen of the swing, I believe they may both be correct.

    And lets not forget that this is not R&R… this is doing America’s business on the golf course with other world leaders. Big distinction. And anyone remotely close to golf knows that Rory M is a world leader. In fact I think he is king of Northern Ireland. Probably discussing Brexit.

    I think Trump is actually preparing for his ultimate world golf summit with none other than Kim Jong-un. Coming to you on pay-per-view soon.

  5. I bet that the people bitchin about Trump playing golf never once said anything about all the time Obama spent on the course.

    1. Trump sure did. “While our wonderful president was out playing golf all day, the TSA is falling apart, just like our government!” Trump said on Twitter last year, referring to the Transportation Security Administration. “Airports a total disaster!”

  6. The most important people in golf are sometimes referred to as “Big Gravy”
    Trump is the Biggest Gravy of them all. When Trump calls you to play golf, you play golf.
    Good for RM for not allowing the liberal Media, SJWs, Snowflakes and assorted Libtards to get in the way of round of golf with The Donald.
    Buy yourself a pint and a bowl of mashed potatoes, Rory
