*Trump & Obama Income Percentiles are Estimates
**Some percentiles were removed due to the fact that the ranges used by
the US Census Bureau did not match up with each USGA Handicap number

***Keep in mind the USGA percentiles are only based on those who keep a handicap. The average golfer handicap would be around 30 if all people who have played golf at least once kept a handicap.
