Obama on his game: 'Honest 13,' struggles in bunkers

RSS

President Barack Obama recently sat down with David Feherty ahead of the Olympics, and when Feherty asked the commander in chief to assess his game the president acknowledged he's "not a hack," but an "honest 13."

"I don't practice that much," Obama joked with Feherty during their interview on the South Lawn of the White House.

Obama does play regularly. According to CBS, Obama played his 300th round of golf as president Sunday while on vacation in Martha's Vineyard. He's still about 500 rounds short of President Dwight D. Eisenhower's number of rounds while in office, and Obama is about 700 rounds short of Woodrow Wilson.

Obama also told Feherty his bunker shots are terrible.

"I think at this point it must be psychological," Obama said of his poor sand game.
