Lindsey Graham hit the golf course to play with Donald Trump on Monday and let the president’s score slip after the round.

The Republican senator from South Carolina joined the president for a round of golf at Trump National Golf Club in Northern Virginia, and despite some less-than-ideal weather, Trump posted a very solid score.

“Really enjoyed a round of golf with president @realDonaldTrump today,” Graham wrote on Twitter. “President Trump shot a 73 in windy and wet conditions.”

“How bad did he beat me? I did better in the presidential race than today on the golf course,” he said in another tweet. “Great fun. Great host,” Graham added.

Par for Trump National is a score of 72, which puts Trump at just one over par on the round. That’s comparable to the scores posted by the top players on the Senior PGA Tour at the Senior PGA Championship at Trump National just last year.

The president and Sen. Graham almost definitely played the course from a different tee box than the senior pros, but a 73 is incredibly impressive for the 71-year-old president.
