Pro golfer posts rare video footage of Donald Trump playing golf

Pro golfer Taylor Funk, son of Champions Tour star Fred Funk, has revealed rare video footage of the golf swing of United States President Donald Trump.

The clip shows Trump hitting drives and putting during the round at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.

It's unlikely Trump was too happy about the clip going viral, however, as the real estate mogul, who has played more golf than any other US president, appears to be unusually shy about his game.

In the past, Trump has gone out of his way to block reporters from filming him while on the course.

Although the clip was deleted soon after emerging on social media, obtained the clip before it disappeared, which you can see below...

It is rumoured the President plays off a handicap of 2. What do you make of his swing? 

"He was good," Taylor said of Trump.

"He shot a legit 36 on the front nine. I was really surprised. Back nine was a little worse. I think he got a little tired, but it was still respectable. He actually played well. I was very surprised. 

"He's definitely a lot better than I thought he was going to be. He's a good player. He was a lot of fun to play with, very engaging. I don't have a bad thing to say about our round. It was amazing."
