CNN - "Trump's aides don't want to admit the President is golfing"

(CNN) President Donald Trump has made visiting his Florida golf courses a near every-weekend habit in the first month of his administration, and his aides are trying to obscure whether Trump is actually golfing during the visits.

One possible reason: Trump was a frequent and vocal critic of President Barack Obama's golf habit, regularly slamming the former president for playing golf with many pressing issues before the country. Trump even suggested during a 2016 event in Virginia, in a knock on Obama, that if elected he was "not going to have time to go play golf."

"I'm going to be working for you, I'm not going to have time to go play golf," Trump said at the time....

The level of secrecy around golf is new for the presidency, too. While the Obama administration was hesitant to allow cameras to regularly get shots of the President hitting the links, they would tell reporters who joined the President for each round. Trump's nascent administration has not done that.

1. Why hide it?

His supporters don't care.

Unless he golfed with Obama and Clinton sent an email about it. Then they would be screaming that someone needs to go to prison.

time for golf and then a clip of each time, WITH THE DATE, that he has played since becoming the embarrassment of the nation.

It's not quite what you suggested, but it's related and has a few seconds of golf in it.

13. Trump cheats at golf

I've read in the past that he regularly cheats at golf.
One example given was when he hit a ball into a water hazard, his caddy 'found' the ball on the green.
