On the day the US decides whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be its next president, a Boston-based auction house is selling golfing memorabilia that once belonged to George H.W. Bush and John F. Kennedy.
“Presidents play golf to relax,” Robert Livingstone, executive vice-president at RR Auction, told CNN.
“The stress of that office, to be able to go out … that’s the great thing about golf, isn’t it? You go out and you play for three hours or so and you can escape the pressures of being the commander in chief.”
Bush, who served from 1989 to 1993, was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in recognition of his “Lifetime Achievement,” such is his love for the sport.
