Four less than flattering scores of 101, 100, 108, 102 were downloaded Friday on the Golf Information Network and Handicap (GHIN) and have since been removed, along with Trump's best round of 68 announced last month.
"We learned that the media was questioning the recently released notes on President Trump's GHIN account," USGA spokeswoman Janeen Driscoll said in a statement.
"As we review the data, it appears that someone has wrongly published a number of scores on behalf of the GHIN user." We take corrective action to remove the scores and we collaborate with our allied golf associations and their club members problem. "
A handicap measures the ability of a golfer – the lower the handicap, the better the golfer.
The elimination of the five scores will change the handicap of 1.8 Trump, which, according to the USGA, will place it in the top 4 golfers who declared a disability.
However, Trump's disability will not be reviewed until June 1 – the GHIN system is updated on the 1st and 15th of each month to ensure everyone's number is updated at the same time.
