President Barack Obama, vacationing in Florida, will play a round of golf Sunday with Tiger Woods and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane, according to a report by Tim Rosaforte.
The President is arriving at The Floridian range. Awaiting is Tiger Woods and club owner Jim Crane. Historic day in golf. Their first round.— Tim Rosaforte (@TimRosaforte) February 17, 2013
Woods and Obama have never played together, although Politico reminds us that Obama did host Woods at the White House for a bit in 2009.
Obama is undoubtedly testing out the lessons he recently got from Butch Harmon, Woods' old swing coach.
Kelly Tilghman and Rick Reilly weighed in on the day.
President Obama playing his 1st round of golf with Tiger Woods at Floridian today. Security probably needs security for that group— Kelly Tilghman (@KellyTilghmanGC) February 17, 2013
Yes, Tiger Woods is playing with President Obama today at The Floridian. Woods even waived his appearance fee.— Rick Reilly (@ReillyRick) February 17, 2013
Pretty funny stuff. All in all their event will probably go off without a hitch, and most of us won't hear much about what was said.
But oh, to be a fly on one of those golf bags.
The year's opening tournament has a new Wisconsin-based backer
Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Henrik Stenson tee it up from the wrong side
Lefty just reached the century mark, and he'll keep going from there
The South Korean will be back in September
Get ready for eight events in seven weeks
The final event of the year is all about keeping your card for 2018
