President Obama played golf on Saturday. That's not such a strange thing, he plays golf a lot.

What was unique about this outing was that it was with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning and the pair played Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale, which is where Caddyshack was filmed.

Mourning was left in awe after the round, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

"I spent six hours in a golf cart with the most powerful man in America talking everything from basketball to life after his term. It was very surreal and enlightening.

"When we left, he handed me the scorecard," Mourning said. "It read, 'Thanks for carrying us today.' "

So how good is President Obama?

"Considering everything on his plate, he's a decent golfer," Mourning said.

The Sun-Sentinel also noted that Obama's round on Saturday is his 39th this year, in the 45th calendar week of 2013.

Also, for fun could we get Bill Murray doing this on Obama?
