Harmons Get The Call; Flying In To Work With Obama

Considering the last call he got led to Phil Mickelson's epic performance in Scottsdale, Butch Harmon should be able to work wonders for the President's golf game when he and son Claude III work with Barack Obama this weekend in Florida.

Tim Rosaforte with the details of Obama's visit to The Floridian where there is also a Harmon Golf School.

"I've played golf with Ike, Nixon, Ford and President Bush 41," Harmon said from his golf school in Henderson, Nev. "I never played with President Clinton. I met him in the Oval Office. It'll be interesting. I know the President is real keen golfer. I'm looking forward to it. It should be fun."

#1 rated? Does that mean it gets rated a lot?

It's too late for that, Donald. We know you'll charge him and the taxpayers don't need another bill.

Lets make this a win-win, Butch. Call Roubini and tell him the President is taking lessons. After you're done with him on the range, Nouriel can explain how the economy works.

Based on his last 5 rounds looks like Phil needs to call Butch again.

Butch, you mean the president doesn't have to be a teapublican, I mean republican to get a round with you? Mr. President please tell the Donald to screw his hair weave. That clown is beneath you. Hell, he's beneath me. I am crushed that Rocco suck's up to that bloviating ignoramus. Ok I give. Edit away.

He's had more vacation time in 6 weeks of 2013 than I've had in 5 years.

I came to a political website and a golf blog broke out.

i'm not going to complain that president plays too much golf....anything to get him away from wrecking the country with unending regulation and an endless campaign. i bet harmon will have obama to scratch sooner than we'll have a national budget...which is never.

Roger, from now on, please post as Roger (R). I will post as Roger (D). Or, if you like, you can be Roger (I).

Good luck Butch.......this guy is as unathletic as they get.......

He will always be a hack, but he can cheat, we all know that.......
Steve, he's a politician; cheating is what they do.
