What is it like to play golf with president Obama?

The other day i was watching interview with Larry David and subject of golf came up. Obviously, i started to actually pay attention, and found out that he had played golf with our former president. I love Obama, and wanted to find out what he was like as a golfer.  Larry, very funnily described him as very humble and generous player, with a little pettines thrown in there. But by the way he said it, i could tell it was intended to be a joke.

 Anyway, i actually started to research on the subject and gathering every bit of information on what he is like as a golfer. It turns out, big chunk of information on obama playing golf comes from our current president, complaining about how much time Obama was spending on golfing. It’s ironic that he is taking a lot more days off than Obama did, but that’s not the point of this post. So let’s discuss into what i found out about our president while digging into everything golf-related that was published about him.

 First of all, i found out that his favorite brand of golf club is probably a Nike. As two of his drivers and all of his golf clubs are made by them. Too bad Nike is quitting golf club business. Even with Tiger Woods and President himself promoting their clubs, they couldn’t sustain the expenses. Back to Obama Though. Out of three woods, one seems to be Taylormade R11 Driver, which, in my opinion, is perfect choice for a player like him. I also found out about one nice gesture from famous golf players and champions of modern golf – Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Davis Love. Story tells that they gave President Obama golf clubs as a gift, and invited him to golf championship they were all going to participate in. Although, looking at his current golf club set, he didn’t seem to keep those clubs in his bag. Maybe he’s one of those people who are picky about golf clubs and need everything to be just right. Or maybe he did bring those clubs to golf course and played with them. There is very little information on what golf clubs he plays with every day, so we can only speculate. 

 One more thing. Since he has left white house, there has been a lot of speculation on where he was going to live and which golf club he would join. It seems like he tried handful of them, including major jewish golf community in Maryland, but he landed on Columbia Country Club, which is pretty close from his 8 million dollar home in Washington. By the way, he plans to stay there for a few years, until his daughter Sasha finishes high school. All in all, you can say anything about Obama, and you can hate his policies, but no one can deny that the man has class.
