Barack Obama Says Tiger Woods Is ‘On Another Planet’ in Golf, Prefers to Keep His ‘Day Job’ (Video)


In a golf pairing that produced a bounty of jokes and jealous fans, President Barack Obama and Tiger Woods shot a round together Sunday.

Just about everybody wanted to know how it went, and ABC was the first to crack the case, piggybacking on an interview about boring stuff like domestic policy to ask Obama about the outing. Obama immediately deferred to the golf champ when asked who looked better on the links.

“That’s not a hard question,” Obama said. “He plays a different game than I do. He’s on another planet.”

That doesn’t mean that Obama was reticent about taking on 18 holes with one of the world’s best, though.

“I don’t think either party was nervous,” he said. “He knew that I wasn’t a big threat to his world ranking, and I knew that I better keep my day job.”

Check out what Obama had to say in the video below, and skip ahead to the six-minute mark if you’d like to do it without the latest about America’s affairs.
