Last night's presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was marked by ageism and personal attacks on both sides. Among other things, several minutes were discussed on the topic of golf and the candidates' abilities as golfers.

Donald Trump, 78, has begun bragging about his physical condition.

– I've just won two club championships – not even senior level, but two normal club championships. You have to be smart and you have to be able to hit the ball far to do that.

Trump then added that Biden “can't even hit a ball 50 yards,” which is 45 meters.

Biden's response:

“When I was vice president, I dropped to a sixth-handicap. As I said before, I’d like to meet you if you had your own golf bag. Do you think you could do that?” Biden asked.

Biden's claim about his disability prompted Trump to call it “the biggest lie ever.”

“I’ve seen your swing, I know your swing,” Trump said. “Let’s not act like children.”
