Donald Trump might claim to be a single-figure handicapper but he is known to hit the odd shank every now and then, and unfortunately for the former POTUS his latest hosel rocket was caught on camera for our viewing pleasure.
Trump was teeing it up at Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles earlier this week.
As we join the video on social media posted by @rsp3k22, a man says: "Trump’s shooting right now, let’s see if he can hit the green..."
Some five seconds later, he then says: "Oh he shanked it!"

If Trump wants to feel a little better about himself, he can take heart from the fact Jon Rahm shanked a chip shot at the US PGA this season.
That moment led to Rahm smashing up a microphone.
Here's how a number of golf fans reacted:

Biden would never— Franklin (@franklinisbored) July 14, 2023
Hits the ball great especially tee shots. Short game needs work.— @danfromdc (@danfromdc) July 14, 2023
Forget the shank, look at all those carts. I’m sure a walk , it is a walking game , would improve his disposition.— John Billington (@QCbillington) July 14, 2023
