Taylor Funk's Vlog Of Golf With President Trump Quickly Vanishes From YouTube

Golf.com's Dylan Dethier details the video blog posted by aspiring pro golfer, former UT star Taylor Funk, who is attempting to document his rise through the mini-tours with video diaries.

In the latest installment, Funk and dad Fred played golf with President Donald Trump over the holidays. Taylor's vlog of the round made a brief YouTube appearance before vanishing.

The Funk's even appeared on CNN to discuss their round and Trump's even-par front nine.


Dethier details what was shown in the video, including two swings by the President and even an admonishment from him about shooting video inside the gates of Trump International, which may explain why this one disappeared quickly from the web.

But Funk seemed able to record video fairly freely. Despite a shot early in the vlog where Trump appears to tell Funk not to film him inside, Taylor continued to capture footage throughout the round, including two videos of Trump's swing.

So the President invites you to play with him at his course, asks you not to film while on the property, and you continue filming and immediately post it online?

This guy is a real winner!!!

Politics aside, it is probably a security issue.
