ABCs Jordyn Phelps reports:
President Obama may have a thing or two to learn from Tiger Woods golf game, according to an upcoming article in the January edition of Golf Digest.
But In light of the recent controversy surrounding Tiger Woods car crash, there are likely more ways in which the President may wish to distinguish himself from the golf star.
The article lists ten things that the President could learn from the ultra-successful golf star in improving his performance as president, and vice versa, from the perspective of several prominent writers and players.
The magazine cover is a photoshopped image of Tiger Woods in a caddys outfit posed behind President Obama as he judges a putt.
Golf Digests Steve Rusbin draws comparisons between the two prominent figures.
Both are at the top of their respective fields -- Obama is the leader of the country and Woods is arguably the best athlete of his era. Both are the worlds most prominent, multiethnic, African-Americans. And both have hired an older guy with impulse-control issues to serve as their right-hand men -- Obama with Vice President Joe Biden and Woods with caddy Steve Williams.

Golf Digest I think is Newhouse and Golf is Time Warner. Fairly liberal for golf magazines and they fawn over Tiger.
“Best Athlete of his era”? He plays Golf! Sometimes he loses to fat guys that smoke.
Lord have mercy.
How to get mistress’’s?
“Don’t upset a Swedish sistah!”
What can BHO learn from Tiger? How about “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.?” Michelle is more likely to use a rolling pin than a golf club, but you get the idea.
"Careful where you leave your balls"...? ;)
Keep “willie’ is yo trousahs.
TYPO correction: Keep “willie” in yo trousahs.
Tiger Woods is apparently a heterosexual.
LOL Make a lot of money.
Girls are more fun than boys?
Im think the ones advising Tiger and his wife should be Bubba and Hillary —they took a scandal and turned in into a 75% approval rating
She wouldn't even need a rolling pin ... she could pound him into the ground bare handed.
No way. Did you photoshop that?
How to drive?
This ought to be good....lol!!
“Sluts are not worth it.”
“One of the major lessons that President Obama could learn from Woods is his ability to quickly recover under pressure after a bad hole or two under pressure, writes prominent golf star Arnold Palmer.”
Unless of course those ‘holes’ release recorded sex tapes to the national media....lol.
Saw it on FNC .... TOOO funny.
Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor??
“One of the major lessons that President Obama could learn from Woods is his ability to quickly recover under pressure after a bad hole ...”
Not sure of his ability to quickly recover from THREE or more bad holes.
LOL. Karma, baby!
Wife- "Whats this in the Enquirer?"
Tiger- "Er, um, those jeans sure do make you look FAT!"
Not a good way to start the day.
Sometime in the afternoon Tiger was sitting on the couch, in the living room.
Three or more bad hos might just do him in...lol.
Ha! Blatant attempt to equate failed usurper POTUS looking like golf star, fails...
golf star’s wife looses temper, uses golf club on golf star...
Message: There’s one thing Michelle could learn from wife of golf star...carry club and whack him if you catch him...
Mission. Failed. Big Time.
Gawd I can’t stand that picture. Looks like a 6 foot leech.
Don't ask your wife to hit a driver?
Boy, you said it ... that’s something I’ve seen
all too often ..
Karma can be a such a *itch, can’t it? I used
to tell my misbehaving former boss that all the
time ... he never got it.
Now ... for the first time, I see the twin
arrogance in Tiger’s self-serving comments
to that of the 0.
His life and words were so perfectly controlled,
that side of him was totally concealed.
His real ugly underbelly has been exposed. No
more golden boy.
And in his statement:
NO true humility .. NO mention of the years his
dear Dad spent training him to be an upstanding
adult and professional .. NO expression of emotion
or real empathy for the deep hurt he caused his
wife AND devoted mother ... all professionally-
crafted PR spin from his team .. and the utter
HUBRIS in the bottom line impression of the
my business is my business ‘cause I’m Tiger Woods,
I’m king of the world, so get the *ell out of my way
and don’t you dare ask me anything about MY life.
Truly really ugly .. there’s now no denying that
he was just another rich, spoiled athlete .. and
we thought he was so special.
Are there ANY upstanding and decent successful
professional athlete role models left for kids ?
I thought for sure this is a photoshop. I still would like more confirmation. Does Obama really wear caps with his friggin’ logo on it????!!!
And the other articles inside:
How to outsmart your buddies (outsmart your wife)
Load it and let it go. (speaks for itself)
Best NEW courses (new women)
Not sure I get the pebble beach one. Although some have pointed out that his lovers tend to be small-breasted.?
Put not your faith in princes, and certainly not celebrity athletes.
The thing that I find so horrible is that all of those women he fooled around with could have had whatever disgusting disease and he felt he had the right to bring that home to his wife. Probably never gave it a thought.
It’s the real cover of the Jan issue obviously printed before the current scandal. Sometimes real life is beyond parody.
WOW! I mean ALL of those titles just fit - weird.
I am hapy to tell you that Mike 'Fluff' Cowan has been appointed as Obama's official Blackberry caddy.
Then along came the flap about the security of Barry's Blackberry.
Gibbs: "Obama complied, and is now using a super-secure BlackBerry with a new e-mail address (although by now I'm sure he has Ackmadeenadude, Chavez, and Hamas in his "Fav Five").
"The president has a BlackBerry through a compromise that allows him to stay in touch with senior staff and a small group of personal friends," Gibbs said.
A part of this cell phone security compromise involves Obama's insistence on the creation of a new post of "First Caddy". Obama has tapped Mike 'Fluff' Cowan to carry his cell phone.
Mike 'Fluff' Cowan gained celebrity status as the gruff and fluffy 'stached golf caddy for Tiger Woods for two and a half years. It's rumored that Tiger fired Fluff in 1999 because he was getting too big for his britches. (This is the same reason Eddie Van Halen fired David Lee Roth and maybe why Fluff has never auditioned for vocals with the band). Prior to his work with Tiger, Fluff caddied for Peter Jacobsen, and most recently for Jim Furyk.
"Fluff has been great to work with so far," gushed Obama. "When we are on the move, Fluff is always checking the cell phone signal and alerts me when we are down to three bars. An emergency call is made for the immediate construction of a new cell tower to increase coverage and boost my signal. No more dropped calls for me, and additional, albeit unnecessary, infrastructure for you".
"I think I'm gaining his trust," Fluff stated of Obama. "Yesterday, he asked me to carry 'The Basketball' while he tied his shoe, and he hands me the briefcase carrying nuclear launch codes". I shook it and said, "I thought they called this 'The Football'." "We had a good laugh over that one!," said Fluff.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs states that President Obama is very happy with Fluff's performance. "He keeps the phone dry when it's raining, wiping it down with his towel after the president hands it back to him. Fluff will give him advice on just about everything, from the stimulus package to the Sudoku puzzle the president is working on".
Yep ... truly hideous.
Good to remember we all have feet of clay,
flawed humans .. no person deserves worship.
It’s sad to think of what he represented to
the youth to emulate and all the years of
care and love Earl Woods devoted to making
a real man of him.
Golf Digest, what’s the ruling. Can the U.S. Citizens have a mulligan?
