Favorite Golfing President

Question is in the title. Mine is JFK hands down. From the videos and pictures I've seen. The dude had a sweet swing. And looked dang good doing it. From the picture below, he'd fit right in if he was out golfing today. Ray Bans and all.

 

Edit: I picked him just for his Sick Flow, Glasses, Pants, brown glove, blue Polo, and those blades. Not for his political affiliation.

Eisenhower. Loved the game but never got real good at it. Petitioned to get that tree at Augusta on 17 removed that he always hit off the tee. They had to adjourn the meeting in order to save the tree (which was struck down by lighting a couple years ago). Installed a putting green at the White House.

 

He was also my 7th cousin. I blame him for me getting the golf club (and not being all that good).

G W Bush! I was born during Ford, so I don't have much to work with!

STOP!

Not supposed to be which side of the political view in any way shape or form. I was born during the Reagan era.

 

If ya'll want to argue politics take it to another site. Just a friendly post up yours and don't take things to heart. This is an unbiased thread.

That picture of JFK is at the Hyannisport Golf Club on Cape Cod.  A good friend of mine is the Superintendent there and I've played it a bunch.  Some members of the Kennedy family are still members there and play some during the summer.

I've had this discussion with friends. I would not pass on playing golf with any president. Politics has nothing to do with it! I would enjoy playing with Bill Clinton!

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I think Obama would just be a cool guy to play 18 holes with, regardless of how you feel about him.

I would play with LBJ! Not because he was great, or even good at the game but rather, he seems like a great guy to hang out and have a couple beers with!

Grover Cleveland.    The story goes that he was playing at an up-scale private club.   A member saw him getting ready to hit his ball about two feet in front of the tee marker.   The member said--Mr. President, at this club we hit from behind the tee markers, sir.   To which President Cleveland responded--Sir, this is my second shot.  

 

I also like President Ford when he said--I must be getting better, I'm hitting fewer people.

 

But as it has been already stated-I would find it interesting to play with any President.  And I most would certainly ask, do you think you can get us on Augusta National.

I've played Army Navy CC in Arlington VA, where Eisenhower played often while he was president.  I've seen his clubs on display in a case there.  I've met a man (John Derr) who played with Ike at Augusta National.  That's the only connection I have, however convoluted, with any golfing president, so I'm going to say he's my favorite.

Not so sure about Mr. Trump, I've heard rumors that his scorekeeping bears a resemblance to the late Korean president Kim Jong Il.  In a bipartisan spirit, I believe I also heard the same about Mr. Clinton.

This a good book on golf played by the presidents through the Bushes but needs to be updated.
