President Obama is known to enjoy a round of golf with professional athletes from time to time, and he also occasionally likes to have a little money riding on these games in order to make them more interesting.
But even the most powerful man in the world isn't safe from being hustled.
Obama recounted the tale of a golfing outing he had with Derek Jeter and Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun, one where Jeter successfully suckered the president into spotting him an insane number of strokes.
“He and Derek Jeter stole money from me at Shadow Creek,” Obama said of Greenspun, referring to the course in North Las Vegas. “It was clearly a set up, because when we got to the practice range, he was shanking balls everywhere. I said, ‘You play golf Derek?’ And he said, ‘I just started 2 weeks ago.’”
They gave Jeter 30 strokes, Obama said, but he realized that was a mistake as soon as they were on the first hole. Jeter crushed him, he said
“We had to take a picture of me handing Derek Jeter money at the end of the game. Despite that, Brian is a great friend.”
Jeter stays winning -- even against the President of the United States.
