President Barack Obama, a noted perfectionist, isn't content with the state of his golf game.
So as the president hits the links this weekend, he's calling in one of the best instructors this country has to offer: Butch Harmon.
The noted swing doctor, who coached Tiger Woods for nine years, has also worked with Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Adam Scott and Dustin Johnson.
Harmon's reputation is so stellar, in fact, that the President specifically asked about working with him this weekend at The Floridian Golf Club in Palm City, Fla. So Harmon and his son, Claude III, will fly to Florida to play some rounds with the Commander-in-Chief.
"I've played golf with Ike, Nixon, Ford and President Bush 41," Harmon told Tim Rosaforte of Golf Digest. "I never played with President Clinton. I met him in the Oval Office. It'll be interesting. I know the president is a real keen golfer. I'm looking forward to it. It should be fun."
Harmon is very familiar with the club, as he helped owner Jim Crane design and build the Floridian's state-of-the-art learning facility.
