Bush: "I think it's good for the president to be out playing golf."

The final In Play with Jimmy Roberts looks to be a good one, with features on Michael J. Fox (inspired by his recent appearance in Golf Digest), Francis Ouimet and a rare sit-down with George W. Bush from The National Golf Links.

The big reveal: President Bush is a supporter of President Obama's regular Sunday rounds of golf.

A teaser for Tuesday night's (10:30 ET) show with the always unfortunate ad before the ad:

Looking forward to seeing the interview with Michael J. Fox. Thank God for DVR.

I will not go political, but if you knew what I was thinking.... Remember, I did work for this guy (Bush) and I have real stories, but not for the WWW

It always gets political.
Roberts' show has been a slight disappointment. I thought there'd be more stories like a foursome that played every weekend for 50 years at a local muny and other grassroots "discovery'' pieces along those lines. Instead we've had pieces on water usage, Dennis Walters, Reg Murphy, warmed-over chestnuts. The best thing so far was the rediscovery of footage of Geiberger's 59.

I liked the water usage story. I last played Pasatiempo in 2003 and was very surprised to see the changes since then. Shame to see, but golf course watering really should be a bottom priority in that region. Other than a presentation at a USGA conference, I don't think it has received enough attention.

Roberts's feature with Lizette Salas was really well done.
