We had a pretty good debate in here about whether the golf swing that allows a player to compete on the PGA Tour requires athleticism. I say it does. Others have compared Tiger Woods hitting a ball 265 yards with a three wood off a sidehill-downhill lie to shooting pool.
I’ve said here many times that Obama has a nice jump shot.
As a golfer, he’s a really good basketball player.
This video of Obama’s golf swing is a perfect example of a guy who shouldn’t set foot on a golf course until he takes some lessons.
It’s hard to decide if this is more embarrassing than his first pitch at the Nationals game.
I think I’ll go with the pitch because it’s easier to throw a ball 60 feert six inches and not look like Oprah Winfrey than it is to have a smooth golf swing.
(That’s including cutting him some slack because of the bullet proof vest.)
