White House Official: President Trump Hasn't Used the New Room-Sized Golf Simulator

The Washington Post is reporting that Trump recently had a massive, $50,000 golf simulator installed in the White House. Perks of the office!

The game reportedly allows the President to play virtual rounds at courses all over the world by hitting a ball into a large video screen.

The simulator cost about $50,000 and was installed over a week ago in a room of the president's personal living quarters in the White House, the paper reported.

U.S. President Donald Trump plays a round of golf at Trump Turnberry Luxury Collection Resort during the U.S. President's first official visit to the United Kingdom on July 15, 2018 in Turnberry, Scotland.

Zion Williamson shares simple reason for Duke's historic comeback
Duke gained confidence with every bucket, celebrating loudly and embracing the challenge of mounting this historic comeback. The Blue Devils kept up that pressure, eventually tying the game 69-69 after Reddish got hot from 3-point range.

The system was installed in recent weeks at Mr Trump's personal expense following his 69-day absence from the course - by far his longest - during the month-long federal government shutdown and harsh winter.

Nevertheless, the Post spent the rest of the article talking about Trump playing golf.

Trump also appears to play more physical golf than Obama did, averaging 70 games a year to Obama's 38, according to Golf Digest. Bill Clinton moved putting green to its current location and had it designed by golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr, according to the White House Museum.

A likely manufacturer for the new White House simulator would be TrackMan.
