President Barack Obama and Tiger Woods met up in Florida this week to swing their golf clubs for charity at the Accenture Match Play tournament in Palm City. Obama paid due respect to the controversial pro-golfer, telling local news channel ABC7, “He plays a different game than I do.Â He’s on another planet.”
“He knew that I wasn’t a big threat to his world ranking, and I knew that I better keep my day job,” the President added with a laugh. Woods returned the compliments, saying, “playing with Mr. President was pretty cool. He’s just a wonderful person to be around. We won.”
We doubt we’ll be seeing the Obamas double dating with Woods and his latest squeeze any time soon, but this unlikely friendship is innocent enough.
