Woods on Obama’s Golf Game: ‘He’s Got Amazing Touch’


Tiger Woods spoke about his golf outing with President Obama in a Match Play Championship press conference Tuesday afternoon. Woods noted that the president had “a few good shots” and could be “a good stick” if he continues to play:

TIGER WOODS: He hit a few [good shots]. He is a pretty good athlete. We all know he plays a lot of hoop. I did not realize, I had kind of forgotten he is a lefty. To see him out there hitting shots, I mean he hit it well. We did not play under the easiest conditions. It was blowing harder than this and it was a little bit cooler than this. So, we played under some tough conditions. He hit the ball well and he’s got amazing touch. He can certainly chip and putt.  After these four years, if he spends more time playing the game of golf I am sure he can actually get to where he is a pretty good stick.

REPORTER: […] How’s his pace?

TIGER WOODS: He’s quick.
