While a standard Presidential Election has three debates between the two candidates, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are partaking in only two — one of which has already taken place. On Tuesday, Trump suggested a third showdown.

Only, it wouldn’t be a debate and would take place in a decidedly different venue.

During the aforementioned first debate, the golf games of the respective candidates were a talking point. With that in mind, Trump challenged Biden to a round of golf with some pretty significant stakes.

“I’m also officially challenging Creepy Joe to an 18-hole golf match right here, on Doral’s Blue Monster, considered one of the greatest tournament golf courses anywhere in the world,” Trump said. “It will be among the most watched sporting events in history. Maybe bigger than the Ryder Cup or even the Masters.

“And I will even give Joe Biden 10 strokes a side — 10 strokes, that’s a lot. That means 20 strokes, in case you don’t play golf. And if he wins, I will give the charity of his choice, any charity that he wants, $1 million. And I’ll bet you he doesn’t take the offer. I would bet it. Because he’s all talk.”

To be fair to the former (and possibly future) President, Masters ratings were not particularly great in April. So, if there was ever a year to outdraw the Masters, it’s 2024. On the other hand, it’s not exactly easy to imagine anyone who did watch that first debate being drawn in by another event prominently featuring these two.

Update: The campaign of President Biden and Kamala Harris responded to the challenge.

There will be no Duel at Doral.
