President Barack Obama is a secret admirer of golf, he plays any chance he can get and at last count he has played 104 full 18 hole rounds of golf in his four years in office. Oh yeah, his rounds last as long at 6 hours per. So much for cutting the deficit huh?
While on one outing near the District Capital, Barack had to end his round early according to ESPN:
“On this morning, Obama calls it quits after nine holes, a curious turn for a golfer who typically insists on 18 holes during rounds that last as long as six hours. No explanation is offered to the media. The lone pool reporter is forced to guess at the reason, blaming the somewhat “chilly weather and rain.”
Back at the White House, Obama, still clad in a white golf shirt, khaki pants and a navy blue windbreaker, doesn’t return to the residence, as he usually does after a round. Instead, he strides to the Oval Office, swaps his black-and-white cleats for dress shoes, hustles downstairs and takes a seat inside the Situation Room. Here the president, still dressed for a Sunday round, watches a monitor as Navy SEAL Team Six storms a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and kills Osama bin Laden.”
This did happen quite a while ago, but it is just becoming public knowledge, as much as i don’t like the guy, i give him props for not putting the mission off while he continued his round.
