Palm City, FL ~ “Green Power” . It reads more like an enviromental slogan, but it’s what we call a day of golf with Tiger Woods and President Barak Obama.
The two enjoyed a round of golf at a secluded, exclusive yacht and golf club on Florida’s Treasure Coast. The President is spening the holiday weekend in Florida. The two had met in 2009 but Sunday was the first time they played together.
According to the Whitehouse spokesman Josh Earnest, President Obama and Woods wera part of a foursome playing with Jim Crane, a Houston businessman who owns the Floridian and baseball’s Houston Astros, and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, a former mayor of Dallas. Obama, an avid golfer, also received some instruction Saturday and played a few holes with Butch Harmon, Woods’ former swing coach.
And what was it like to watch President Obama and Tiger Woods?
“Just to see the interaction between the two on the range was pretty neat,” Harmon told Golf Digest. “The President said to Tiger: ‘The last tournament you played was fun to watch. It’s good to see you play well again.’ You could tell he meant it. It just wasn’t a throw it out compliment.”
If you enjoy golf, well, a round with Tiger Woods is like a dream come true. Throw in the President of the United States and you have a once-in-a-lifetime moment to treasure forever.
