US president Obama’s golf game has gotten some publicity recently. Whilst his scorecard remains a secret the time he spent playing golf has not. Since he took office he has played a total of 115 rounds of golf. The president has played during vacations and on public holidays but some people say he has spent too much time playing golf. With the US economy on the road to recovery the Golf Gopher thinks this is a bit harsh.
On a recent round Obama teamed up with Tiger Woods at a private golf course in Florida. Obama and Woods beat their 2 ball opponents – surprise, surprise! After the round President Obama was quoted saying, “He plays a different game than I do …. I don’t think either party was nervous, he knew that I wasn’t a big threat to his world ranking and I knew that I better keep my day job.”
The Golf Gopher didn’t realise President Obama was a golfer but apparently since taking office he has gained a new appreciation for the game as it is the only time he gets to be outdoors for extended periods of time.
