Thankfully, he hasn't let his pesky job in the White House get in the way of his practice, having taken 23 golf trips since moving into the office 136 days ago.

Donald will probably do even better in office.
Mr Trump criticised his predecessor Barack Obama heavily for his golf rounds while in office.
