PALM CITY, Fla. -- President Obama got some tips Saturday from Tiger Woods's former swing coach during the first day of a guys' weekend golf outing here on Florida's Atlantic coast, which included three men who have contributed to his past political campaigns.
Obama is staying and playing at the Floridian National Golf Club, a private, gated compound owned by Houston businessman Jim Crane. Crane also owns the Houston Astros, and last March he hosted a fundraiser for the president inside an upscale annex of Minute Maid Park where the Astros play their home games. Crane was part of Saturday's group.
Crane was named the best CEO golfer in America by Golf Digest back in 2006. He currently holds a 2 handicap at a host of courses that he's a member of, including the Floridian.
