Yep, he has done something else to show that he is not Bush…he has tied the number of times that Bush played golf while in the White House. According to this article, it took Bush 2 years and 10 months to play golf 24 times. This is something that Obama has managed to do in just 9 months. Wow! What a record!
I do wonder why Bush stopped playing golf after just 2 years and 10 months because it would seem to be an ongoing number. Otherwise, looking at 24 times in 9 months means that he played an average of 2.67 times a month. Well, that is less than once a week. So, if there are 12 months in a year and his term is 4 years that means that continuing his average number of times playing a month, he should play golf 128 times. Hmmm, I wonder if that will be another first for him. The president who played the most rounds of golf while in the White House.
ETA: It was a first for the president who loves to be the first at anything. It was the first time that he has included a woman in a sports event at the White House. Wow! Gotta love the fact it took him 9 months to include a woman.
