Hackers add bogus scores to Trump’s U.S. Golf Association account

Hackers accessed President Trump’s U.S. Golf Association account and added four fake golf scores for games allegedly played at two courses.

After being alerted to media reports, “as we dug into the data it appears someone has erroneously posted a number of scores on behalf of the GHIN user,” Golfweek cited Craig Annis, the managing director of communications for the USGA, as saying.

While Trump typically scores in the 70s and 80s, hackers posted made up scores of 100, 101, 102 and 108, supposedly recorded at Trump National located in New York and the Cochise Course at Desert Mountain located in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Annis said the association is investigating the hack.
