Golfers at Richmond Golf Course in Surrey were stunned today when they saw Theresa May and Boris Johnson take on Donald Trump in a round of golf to celebrate the Ryder Cup.                                                                                                          
The controversial US president and the “stable and steady” UK Prime Minister were pictured enjoying 18 holes alongside Boris Johnson, who could never be accused of swinging for Europe, until now.                                                                               
Donald Trump, the owner of 17 golf courses in the USA, has been much criticised for the amount of time he has spent on the golf course during his Presidency, and he put that experience to good use as he beat Johnson and May on the final hole, which bodes well for American hopes in this week’s Ryder Cup, for which Ladbrokes make them the 8/11 favourites to win.                                                  
The spoof photo-shoot was organised by Ladbrokes to celebrate the Ryder Cup which takes place this week against a backdrop of extraordinary political times across the United Kingdom, Europe and the USA.                                                             
According to Ladbrokes up to £20 million will be wagered on the Ryder Cup in Britain. The leading British bookie has also seen a sharp increase in political betting given the huge media coverage of the ongoing Brexit negotiations and the upcoming US mid-term elections.                                                                                
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said today: “It’s great to see Boris and Theresa joining forces and playing for Team Europe in our Ladbrokes version of the Ryder Cup. Europe have won three of the last four Ryder Cups and have home advantage this time around, but the USA are our odds-on favourites to take the trophy back home to Donald Trump”
