VIDEO: President Obama praises Ernie Els and Tiger Woods
Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson, as well. This is pretty cool coming from the president.
President Obama praised a number of golfers at the White House on Tuesday night for their charity work off the golf course.
"All of these guys are giving back to their respective communities," said Obama. "We want to thank them for being such outstanding ambassadors for golf who use their success not just on the course but to support worthy causes off the course."
The Dufners got a shout out, Tiger Woods and Zach Johnson did, as well. And the stuff about Ernie Els' work with autism was pretty poignant.
The golfers were at the White House to be honored for the 2013 Presidents Cup competition. The resulting photos were hilarious.
