A Florida golf range is using headshots of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as targets for golfers to aim at while practicing.

According to Bay News 9, Ace Golf Range and Pro Shop in the Tampa, FL suburb of Brandon put up photos of the two unpopular presidential candidates to liven up the driving range. In honor of their political parties, Clinton is on the left side of the driving range and Trump is on the right side.

“What we are trying to do is get more and more guests to come out here and let off that steam, especially with everything leading in up to November,” said General Manager Robert Klapka.

Some golfers are aiming at the candidate they dislike more, but many simply find it fun to aim at something besides an ordinary target.

“I would say aim at who they don’t like. But Hillary is at a worse angle over there,” said golfer Jimbo Sparks.

“The reason why I chose ‘The Donald,’ because he will make my shot great again,” joked golfer Courtney Kennedy.

Trump and Hillary’s targets are 100 yards out, and difficult to hit, making them good practice for golfers.

“It’s kind of like winning the lottery for some people when they actually do hit it because most of the time, nine out of ten aren’t touching that thing out there, unfortunately. But that’s why they’re out there, so they can practice their target on surface area to hit,” Klapka said.

“I am having a hard time right now, so I will have to draw in [Trump’s] most famous quotes. I will probably have to think of putting a wall between me and him and get over the wall,” Kennedy said.

The Trump and Clinton targets will remain at the golf range until the election concludes in November.
