President Bush hosted the victorious U.S. Walker Cup at the White House, with chaperones...
USGA incoming President Walter Driver (he officially takes office on Feb. 4), outgoing president Fred Ridley, Hall, Lewis and players Matt Every, Brian Harman, Billy Hurley, Anthony Kim, Michael Putnam, Kyle Reifers and Lee Williams entered the Oval Office in single file. (Three players from the team, John Holmes, Nicholas Thompson and Jeff Overton had prior PGA Tour commitments and did not attend). Bush greeted each one individually.
I wonder if Bush asked how long the Dulles baggage claim took?
In this story, Brian Harmon talks about the president and the compliment he paid him.
“It was a real honor to be at the White House,” the Savannah native said from Washington before boarding a plane. “President Bush is such a great guy. He’s very down to earth. We actually talked some about Georgia football. I told him I think he’s doing a heck of a job.”
