    More business is done on gold courses than golf or perhaps in some offices.

    Yes - I agree fully. My brother is a successful business man. About 30 years ago he took up golf, specifically to make more business contacts. It worked.

    My fore some does not even keep score. If you hit a bad shot just drop a ball next to your cart mates ball. It's all for fun, not competition. When I play a tourney it's all legit and by the rules.

    Well---maybe trump should get some golf lessons for the little chubby guy---then they would ride around in a cart together and stop the current game with the little chubby guy kicking sand in trump's face.

    To be fair---this is the historical norm for the Kim's.

    We give them concessions
    They take the concessions
    They give us the finger

    Foolish answer ignoring the facts. The Norks have stopped launching ballistic missiles and detonating nukes and the U.S. has invoked serious sanctions along with a certain degree of compliance by foreign entities. Big difference even if you want to deny it.

    “Tactical” - not a long-range ballistic missile.

    Headline today —

    North Korea sends US $2 million medical bill for Otto Warmbier’s care: report

    “North Korea slapped the US with a $2 million bill for the hospital care of Otto Warmbier — forcing an American official to sign a pledge to fork over the money before being allowed to fly the comatose student back home from Pyongyang in 2017, according to a new report.

    The US envoy sent to retrieve the University of Virginia student from the rogue regime signed an agreement to pay the bill on instructions passed down from President Trump, two people familiar with the situation told the Washington Post on condition of anonymity.

    The invoice ended up at the Treasury Department, where it remained unpaid throughout 2017, the sources said...”

    And people say there is no advantage in having a professional welcher as president!

    Sounds like the kind of guy who would cheat at golf.
