President Obama squeezed in a few rounds of golf this weekend, during his trip to Florida. Sunday morning he was joined at The Floridian by a one Tiger Woods. Maybe you've heard of him?
POTUS and Tiger golfed together for the first time and (most of) the press wasn't there to catch it. The White House press corps is not thrilled that they were left off the list. President of the White House Correspondents Association, Ed Henry, issued a statement on the snub (which has been posted by Politco)
"Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend," Henry said in a statement, relayed in a White House pool report. "There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency."
President Obama and Tiger Woods were joined by U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Floridian owner Jim Crane for the round. Golf Digest senior writer Tim Rosaforte was at The Floridian in Palm City, where he managed to get the exclusive scoop.
