Being president is tough. You have to fix everything, congress is constantly blocking every decision you make, and people and news networks accuse you of being a dirty socialist tyrant all the live long day.

But then you also get to play golf with Tiger Woods, so it all evens out.

Barack Obama met up with Tiger at The Floridan Golf Club in Palm City Sunday, and played at least 27 holes of golf, according to one report.

Obama spent his weekend in Florida.

Tim Rosaforte, senior writer for Golf World and Golf Digest, tweeted a bit of the action:

"Not going to turn this into Tiger Tracker, but from pro shop at Floridian we received word TW holed out greenside bunker No. 1 for birdie."

"The President is arriving at The Floridian range. Awaiting is Tiger Woods and club owner Jim Crane. Historic day in golf. Their first round."

Joining the president and Tiger on the golf course was Houston Astros owner Jim Crane.

"We had a big day today," Crane told MLB.com.

"Well, when you get to play with the president and Tiger Woods in the same round, that's one that doesn't happen every day and it might not happen again," Crane said. "It was a lot of fun. The President was very cordial, and Tiger had a lot of fun and hit some great shots. We had a lot of fun."

In other words, Obama, Tiger and Crane had fun.

But there were some who didn't have so much fun. Reporters, of course.

The White House press corps bitched about having no access to the President as he vacationed and golfed with Tiger Woods.

The president of the White House Correspondents Association, Ed Henry, delivered a statement on how ornery the media was about this outrage.

"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. There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency."

The press demands transparency when you're putting around on your free time, dammit!

Sorry to nit pick but he allegedly played 27 holes not 27 rounds. Also played with Jim Crane ( at his course) , who is one of those nasty Texas oil barons at the forefront of the Keystone Pipeline debacle.
