Barack Obama has now played 300 rounds of golf as the sitting president of the United States. The current Golfer in Chief still is a long way behind the likes of Woodrow Wilson (1,200) and Dwight Eisenhower (800) in terms of rounds played while calling the White House home, but over the course of the last eight years, we’ve seen through obstructed views that his game is getting better.

Sitting down with David Feherty as part of NBC’s Olympic coverage and specifically golf’s return to the Olympics, Obama admitted some previously “classified” information: he’s an “honest 13” handicap who can have a round derailed by a few too many shots out of bunkers.
The President of the United States, he’s just like us.
