Indeed. Pool reporters seem to have been left in the dust.

Ah, unrequited love! Luckily, Golf Digest’s Rosaforte is on the scene to provide details.

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 White House did eventually confirm the news.

Inside the gated golf community in Palm Beach, FL today, Obama is playing his 114th round as president (third this year).

— Emily Miller (@EmilyMiller) February 16, 2013

Reporters may not receive any squee-worthy (to them) photos, though.

@oknox It should be WH pool images but WH has called a lid and pool does not currently enjoy access to the Floridian

— Margaret Talev (@margarettalev) February 17, 2013

#Obama, @TigerWoods golfed together, the WH confirms to traveling press pool that does not have access to the location

— Margaret Talev (@margarettalev) February 17, 2013

WH pool reporters requested access, photos of Obama / Woods golf game but so far they are keeping it on the Q.T. (@Majchrowitz)

— FOX News Radio (@foxnewsradio) February 17, 2013

WH not letting press pool snap pics of POTUS with Tiger Woods. Will WH release official photo?

— Steven Dennis (@StevenTDennis) February 17, 2013


Reaction is swift. Good thing there is nothing pressing going on, right?

@KellyTilghmanGC: President Obama playing his 1st round of golf with Tiger Woods today. ” Not sure who plays more golf Tiger or Obama….

— Paul Fisher (@fishepa) February 17, 2013

Rome continues to burn. "@DVNJr: Obama's golf weekend a duffer's dream. Saturday: Lesson from Tiger's ex-swing coach. Sunday: Play w/Tiger"

— Sean Agnew (@seanagnew) February 17, 2013

Whatever you do Tiger, don't get in front of Obama! #Fore MT @politico: Report: Obama golfing with Tiger Woods

— Rschrim (@Rschrim) February 17, 2013

Makes sense that Obama would play Golf with Tiger Woods. Both live a life of false narratives and hate answering questions about it.
