Obama’s Legacy: Hitting the Links January 17, 2017

President Obama played more golf than any president for the past 55 years!

During his eight years in the White House Mr Obama played a total of 306 rounds of golf, a commitment to the game his opponents called excessive and frequently used to attack his work ethic.

Mr Obama’s passion for golf contrasted with that of his predecessor, George W. Bush, who played just 24 times in office. Mr Bush gave up entirely in 2003 because he felt images of him playing seemed insensitive while US soldiers were fighting and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That’s 10 months of golf he played during his 96 months in office.

Actually below average for golfers, but few of them are leaders of the free world.

Well, I guess President Obama wasn’t either.
