Governor Taft petitions court to suppress embarrassing golf scores.
COLUMBUS, OHIO - On the heals of Governor Taft’s conviction for failing to report golf outings, attorneys for the Governor sought to prevent further embarrassment by formally asking the court to seal the Governor’s golf scores. In an emotional statement to the court, the Governor stated he was deeply embarrassment by many of the high scores including one particular round of 18 holes in which the Governor scored 126. In his plea for the court’s compassion the Governor commented, "If these scores get out I’m ruined. My family doesn’t deserve this kind of humiliation." While reviewing the Governor’s actual scorecards the Judge shook his head in disbelief noticing scores consistently two to three strokes over par on every hole. Later during a private meeting in the Judge's chambers, the Judge harshly critiqued the Governor's golf swing pointing out several fundamental flaws.
In return for sealing the golf scores, the Governor agreed to make several swing corrections and he committed to spending more time focused on his short game.
