Tiger Woods on golf with Obama: 'We won'
Golf star hit links with Obama in Florida over weekend
It's an invitation one doesn't turn down, as Tiger Woods said: the offer to hit the links with the president.
The golf star said Tuesday that when he and President Barack Obama played on Sunday, they were on the same team.
"He was my partner," Woods told reporters, adding, "we won."
Obama spent the weekend at The Floridian, a coastal resort owned by Democratic donor Jim Crane who also played with the president. Rounding out the foursome on Sunday was U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk.
"He calls up and says, hey Tiger, you wanna play?" Woods recounted, laughing. "No, it's a obviously -- there is a process that's involved and I was invited to play. And it was an invitation that certainly you don't turn down and especially being -- he's an avid golfer, and so am I so we went out there."
When Obama returned to the White House from his weekend on Monday, he smiled and declined to answer reporters' question about the game. The White House blocked reporters from viewing the president's golf party for the most part, but CNN was able to view Obama playing a portion of two holes on Monday.
On Saturday, Obama may have picked up a few tips for his own game. He played with Wood's former coach, Butch Harmon.
Obama and Woods previously met in 2009 at the White House when the golf star was in town for a charity event.
