I'm really looking forward to this Jimmy Roberts chat with George W. Bush about golf. Bush always seems to be pretty unintentionally humorous and his sly-smile charm is perfect for one-on-ones like this one with Roberts.

He also had a surprising hot sports take on how much President Obama currently plays golf. Despite Bush's decision to not play for the latter part of his term in office because the country was at war, he thinks it's good for President Obama to get out and hit it around a little bit.

"I see our president criticized for playing golf, I don't, I think he ought to play golf. I know what it's like to be in the bubble and I know the pressures of the job. To be able to get outside and play golf with some of your pals is important for the president."

He went on to say that it's a nice way for a person in such high office to blow off some steam.

"It does give you an outlet. I think it is [a good release] and I think it's good for the president to be out playing golf."

The show will be on the Golf Channel on Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. ET.
