“That last election should have been won, except Romney choked like a dog. He choked … Let me tell you, Jordan Spieth choked a little bit,” Trump said in a campaign speech in Rome, N.Y. “But you know what? He’s going to recover. He’s a great young guy and he’s going to recover. Romney can’t recover from a choke.”
Trump, owner of several golf courses, seems to always find time to watch sports, whether it’s the NFL playoffs or the Masters.
“Golf is very delicate game. It’s a tough mental game,” Trump told New York’s WOR. “It’s one of those things that makes it great and horrendous. [Spieth] is such a nice young guy and he was doing it so well. … It looked like it was over. He was playing so well. Then he got a bogey, then he got another bogey, then he got a little scared. Then he hit the ball in the water. Then he hit another ball in the water.
“…He’ll be good. He’ll come back. But that’s something that is life-shattering, to be honest. If you lose, you lose by one stroke. But when you do what he did, the second shot in the water, that was incredible.”
