#1 Harmon would do well to keep his discouraging assessments to himself. I for one would prefer to see the Champ devote 100% of his time to travel between the White House and the links at Andrews AFB and Fort Belvoir.

#2 He should also look forward to a very intense IRS audit very soon.

#3 That's a funny swing- you'd almost think he knew how to use a shovel.

#5 I am sure his best club is the foot wedge and his best friend on the golf course is the eraser end of the pencil.

All these great journalist (who I a sure have played a round or two with the champ) have yet to report one 18 hole score.

#6 Maybe his bowling game is better than golfing. Gutter ball vs out of bounds. What difference does it make?

#7 Sounds like he needs more practice. A LOT more practice. Focus his attention 100% on the game until he consistently plays par golf. He's the One, so I'm sure he can get there in the next 3-4 years. Go for it, Champ!

#8 ...you can keep that par if you want to.

#9 No wind up means piss poor follow through. Yup, fits him perfectly.

#10 O looks like hee(-haw) has been taking Charles Barkley Lessons.

#11 I imagine he doesn't allow enough time for practice, for one. It also appears that he's an impatient golfer. Nothing wrong with that, if you are aware of it and deal with it accordingly (like practice.)

I think he'd be better at tennis.

#12 Both Champ and Charles look like they are trying to kill snakes with a driver instead of hitting a golf ball.

I'd love to play a round with Charles because I bet he is a hoot to play with and a general good guy, not to mention I KNOW my golf swing is better than his...I would sooner roll in broken glass and swim off the Great Barrier Reef naked than play with that flaming asshole of a President we are cursed with.

#13 Pappy - he's done 150 rounds since he got in office. That's enough practice. He plays with sycophants. I'd love for one of his playing partners to turn to him and say: "your swing sucks."

#14 FrankG, I want to see him play at least a round a day, more some days. No cart, no caddy. And I don't care what sycophants play with him. I just want him too tired and busy to do any more harm.

#16 Bowling. Baseball. Skeet. These we know.

Anyone who claims to play basketball will accidentally hit one of thirteen shots. I seem to remember his throwing the football on the beach looking a bit, well, not on a rope. His bicycling looks awkward.

Some sports, like golf, are just not right for some people. I think there is enough of a spread of physical skills here to say he is not a natural athlete. A game can be learned, and enjoyed. Out here we have a 9 hole course - Barry would be what we politely call a four hour partner. Remember when he skipped a hole at Marhtha Vahnyarhd because he could be photographed? Probably uses it as a test to see how loyal his partners are, judging by the amount of brownnosing. Why Mr. President..I have never in my entire enlightened life have known anybody who has gotten a birdie by literally knocking a nest out of the deepest elm branch..truly magnificent, and only four tries doing so...such splendor!

Its the mystique building which is a quacker..they were like ZOMG!<3 he can dribble and shoot and layup! Sorry, that is junior high game warmup level.

I'd love to see him on the clay. Maybe opposite Putin eating a bear claw. A claw from a bear he tracked while flying a Backfire, para dropped from his autogyro and landing on the bear's neck, snapping it, chewing off the claw, and swimming home. In the Volga. In December.

#18 "...don't wanna' know what 18 holes with the Champ would be like..."

It would be like an opera: me, me, me, me, me ....

#19 I just wish one of his foursome would say when he asks the "One" his score and he says "I had a bogey on that hole". "Mr President, don't you mean a 10". There is no shame in being a poor golfer, Lord knows I am. But if you are willing to lie about your golf score....................

#20 Par is racist

#21 Well par IS rap spelled backward, so it must be anti-black.

Story about I guy I knew. Played a round of golf with an inventory representative. Rep was seen using a foot wedge. Finished the round, went to the office from the links, called the company and dropped them, "If you SOBs cheat at golf, then I can't trust you in business."

Not the same, Frank. Practice means both identifying your flaws and working on (whether outside instruction, studying good golfers, reading up on and doing drills, or serious self-correction,) correcting those flaws.

As is evidenced over the past 5+ years, the President is incapable of doing neither.

#23 This just shows that Obama just can't learn. He's unteachable.

He can't learn how to be a president or any sort of leader or diplomat.

He can't learn golf.

#24 I'm not a golf person. I'd probably be no good if I tried.

I can't help but thinking, though, that if you can't keep from cheating at golf, you're probably missing the point.
