Tiger Woods: Obama Has 'Amazing Touch' on Golf Course

When Tiger Woods is your teammate, it's hard to lose. Still, President Obama has a pretty good game, according to the world's second-ranked golfer.

President Obama and Woods played golf over Presidents' Day weekend, and Woods divulged on Tuesday that they teamed up to beat the other players in their foursome, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane.

"He was my partner, and as I said, we won," Woods told reporters at a press conference after a practice round at the WGC-Accenture Matchplay Championship in Arizona.

"He hit the ball well, and he's got an amazing touch. He can certainly chip and putt," Woods said of Obama. "If he ... spends more time playing the game of golf, I'm sure he can get to where he's got pretty good stick" -- golf-aficionados' terminology for a talented game.

1. Honestly. Tiger is a golf champion, but he used women like tissue. I'm not really a golf lover so it

is difficult for me to excuse Tiger's personality.

3. I don't see the comparisons. They are all different. I'm not comparing Tiger to anyone else. I am

not a fan of this golfer's personal life and I not particularly fond of golf. That's all.

4. I'm not a fan of affairs either.

 

If you're going to do it, separate from your spouse first. Don't drag them into it.

5. Tigers's sex life is not now, nor has it ever been, my business

I'm glad the president isn't sitting in judgement. Tiger isn't a felon. And, I, for one, think the media has exacted way more punishment than it had the right.

6. I agree.

 

If he had been a player with only a few wins there would have been no media frenzy.
