Number of times golfing on since taking office: TEN
Number of times at church since taking office: ONE

Cost of hypocrisy: PRICELESS

Actually, “golf” was chosen as the name of the game because all the other four letter words were already taken..

Who cares if he sucks at golf...We would rather have him on the greens 24/7 where he can do a lot less damage compared to sucking as President!

This whole thing to King Obama is an open expense account to where ever he wants to sight see as a King and spend more time playing fun and games than doing the job as a President. He is a child and never grew up.

[No] way he can break 120 from the womens tees...

But he'll be adored for his sensitivity to Womens Issues. Perhaps he plays Best Ball with his Secret Service detail.

Golf is a difficult game. I take my hat off to him for playing and allowing photographers.

He obviously enjoys it.

Ugly. My wife could probably swing better than that and she *hates* golf.

Now back to practicing mine. 4th Annual Family Golf Tourney next week, and my brother will NOT beat me this year!

More likely he wants them there, anywhere and everywhere. He feeds on attention.

OMG his swing sucks. Mine ain't much better but I could whoop him on the course easily. Me and my $15 set of golf clubs.

Only to suit his own ends, namely, inviting fawning comparisons to Eisenhower.

Pretty wimpy swing. Kind of funny when he was looking around to see if anyone see his BlackBerry go 5 yards off of his hip after his swing.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

Stupid’s golfed 10 times in 5 months. I wonder how many times 41, or W did in each of their terms?

Somebody said he doesn’t do damage to anything else when he’s golfing? WRONG!!! Per his choppy swing, it matches what’s he’s doing to our freedoms and our financial markets.....

My 10 year old son could beat him like a drum. Of course my son can drive it 200 yards and has a descent short game (he chipped in for birdie yesterday).

What I’m curious about now is how he scores when he plays. Is he like Clinton, with a mulligan on every hole?

yea.. he SUCKS!

But.. really, 11 times? I don’t think I’ve played that many times... in fact, I KNOW I haven’t... and, I’m not President!

wow... I wonder how many times W played in 8 years?? I bet it less than 11.

Dunno how he plays b-ball - no hand eye coordination and looks like a non-athelete...come to think of it I never have seen him play...short clips...but didn’t he roll like a 36 bowling? A 12 year old could do better...I think he’s taking golf lessons from Charles Barkley...

That swing is both uncoordinated and effeminate.

Saw this comment on that YT thread: "This is the first USA Presdident I've ever liked" (or something to that effect). So I clicked on the guy's profile, and here's the first paragraph:

"God bless Ahmadinejad, Iran and its conservative majority with peace, security and protection from the ZioNazi terrorists in Israel and USA and their agitator puppets within Iran's borders."

Nice.

If I had his golf swing, I’d never be seen in public. I’d have a training facility built in the White House where Ledbetter and Harmon would be constant guests.


I find it hard to believe he has had any lessons. It looks like he is trying to “lift” the ball up into the air. A classic beginner’s mistake (and the first thing a teacher would stop him from doing.)

It’s a pet peeve for many golfers. The noun golf is widely misused as a verb. That’s not to say there isn’t a proper use as golf as a verb, but that’s rarely the case. Professional writers make the mistake constantly and it irks me to no end.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to be a smart-aleck, but being critical of a person’s grammar on a message board is a pet peeve of mine. It is an informal setting.

Funny how different people have different pet peeves.

On occasion, and sometimes for even several holes in a row, I have been known to play something that resembles golf.

It's still golf, but we just suck at it. I am a scratch player, but I'd be hard pressed to break 95 on a PGA setup with greens running 12-13 on the Stimp meter. I played a PGA setup not long after a tourney once and 4 putted 5 times. Two of those were with 2-3 footers for par and I blew it by the hole 6-8 feet. Let's put it this way, I hit 12 greens and 10 fairways and shot 98. And yes, there was a snowman in there too with no penalty strokes and no impossible lies. It gives you a whole new respect for how good those PGA Tour Pros really are.

Yeah, I should requalify that and say that I have been known to play something that resembles golf - ON MY LOCAL MUNI. I'm a walking scorer when the Nationwide event comes to town. I don't know the Stimp rating for how they set up the greens, but they are quicker than anything I've played. Most every one of these guys has an excellent short game and can really roll the ball, and they can do it under pressure.

It is still golf, and even though we suck at it hope springs eternal on every tee box. It's a game for optimists, and you must play in the moment, not thinking about the last shot, and thinking very little about the next shot.
