The Donald Cheats? -- F-O-R-E!!!

6/14/2006 2:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billionaire entrepreneur Donald Trump took in a round of golf with a threesome Tuesday afternoon at his Los Angeles course, Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calf. - and sources tell TMZ they caught him cheating at his golf game!

Numerous sources tell us The Donald shanked his shot from the tee out of bounds into the weeds.  He then proceeded to drive his golf cart - alone-  down to find his ball.  When he noticed his ball went into the natural preserve area, he turned his golf cart to block him as he took a ball out of his pocket, looked over at his partners to make sure they weren't watching, and rolled the new ball into the rough.

 The rule in golf is when you hit your ball into the natural preserve, it's played as a lateral hazard.  This means you drop your ball 2 club lengths from point of entry.  Donald's ball was dropped much further than 2 club lengths from point of entry - more like 4 or 5.

When the new roll sunk too deep into the rough grass, Trump picked up the ball and placed it higher in the grass to improve the lie of his ball.  The Donald then got into his golf cart to drive back to his partners to tell them he found his ball.

When you're Donald, you don't have too many people to answer to.  BTW Happy Birthday Donald- you turned 60 today!

Calls placed to Donald Trump's reps were not immediately returned.

I can even believe that you would waste a quarter to call DT Reps. It is not like it was Tiger Woods in the PGA tournament- Good Lord!!! Funny but..... we need to find you more news.

If you cheat at golf, you cheat in life. The "Donald" can now be called appropriately: "The Cheat".

My step brother caddied for Donald Trump and said the first thing Donald said after hello was, I cheat. He was funny and a good tipper otherwise.

Cheating at golf (a sport) demonstrates how he lives his life.

When your ball is in the rough, and no one's looking, you're supposed to tee it up and hit a driver.

Thanks for the story - over here in Pedro, we love seeing the Donald make an ass out of himself.

I would have to say that the guy in the picture is not Donald Trump.

He owns the club, he's rich and he cheats. Hmm...Does he also have his manservant Oddjob slice off the heads of statues with a deadly metal hat?

Oh the horror! How dare Donald take 2 extra club lengths drop in a friendly game of golf! I have lost all faith in the man and will never watch his show again!

Please! It's not like this was some PGA tour. Just some friends playing a round, probably for his birthday. Who cares if he took a coulpe extra club length drop... who does it hurt if he even takes a mulligan.

I fail to see how any of this matters. There are bigger problems in the world than this and far far better things to be focusing on than watching/SPYING on someone on his leisure time.

I see no problem here. I normally tee it up on every shot. Otherwise, it would take
me all day to get on the green.
