Tom Brady swings like The Big Easy and smacks the bejesus out of the golf ball, says country club mogul Donald Trump. The three-time Super Bowl champ with a reputed single-digit handicap may even have a future in front of him should he trade in his football cleats for a pair of FootJoy spikes.
"I’m a good golfer, but if Tom played golf, he’d have unlimited potential," Trump told the Boston Globe Tuesday. "I’m telling you, Tom hits the ball a mile, and when he swings he looks like Ernie Els. Fortunately for you [New England Patriots fans], football is his preference."

The Globe spoke with The Donald about whether Bill Maher had ponied up $5 million to Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, among other charities, after the comedian took a swipe last week at Trump’s infamous campaign pledge to President Obama. Maher razzed Trump’s election-season offer to donate $5 million to a favorite POTUS philanthropy if the Hacker in Chief released his birth certificate.
In Maher’s case, he challenged Trump to prove he was not the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan."
Trump’s attorney had an immediate written response to the taunt:
"Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump’s birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan. Please remit the $5 million to Mr. Trump immediately and he will ensure that the money be donated to the following five charities in equal amounts: Hurricane Sandy victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes, and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute."
The orange-haired comb-over king (or the "syphilitic monkey who does his Twitter feed," if Maher is to be believed) also goosed his antagonist with a flurry of tweets.
Still waiting for a response from @billmaher.Does he even have $5 million?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 14, 2013
Trump said the "Real Time" host had yet to cough up the cash, adding that his own support for Dana-Farber went way back and that his swanky Mar-a-Lago golf sanctuary in Palm Beach regularly hosted fund-raisers for the medical center.
As for which team the maven of "Celebrity Apprentice" and good pal of Pats owner Robert Kraft would put his money on in Sunday's AFC Championship game between the Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens, Trump played to the home crowd.
"I never bet against Bill Belichick and Bob Kraft and Tom Brady," said Trump, who, with no apparent intention of doing so, mangled the slogan of Rory McIlroy’s new golf daddy. "I just don’t do it."
