One Of My Favorite Golf Pictures Ever

Our President is an athlete, there is no denying that. He hoops it up with college teams, plans to be a part of the Presidents Cup (which, I'm not a huge fan of) and even tees it up occasionally when he wants to clear that complicated head of his.

What he does do is things like this, in the above picture. If you ask any of my friends (or enemies, probably), you'd soon find out that the imaginary practice swing is one of my favorite things to do. I'm also checking my takeaway and swinging around if there is something reflecting at me, and I find it is one of the true signs of a serious golf nut.

This picture, taken from the Steve Rushin column in this month's Golf Digest, is absolutely what it should be. A golfer, no matter his position in life, swinging away.

Well played, Mr. Obama.

Anything to do with both of you being southpaws?

I'd like to see him hitting full wedges into Pennsylvania Avenue with the Secret Service wearing baseball gloves...
