Obama’s “POTUS” Golf Ball Found In Woods Off First Hole

President Barry Obama played golf this past weekend at Maryland’s Congressional Country Club. According to Sports Illustrated, he played with ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon, along with aid Marvin Nicholson. It’s unknown how prez hit them all day or which of the four came out on top, but if his tee shot on #1 is any indication, Obama played like shit.

The day after the presidential round of golf, Instagram user larrydoh found a ball in the woods off the first hole that he believes belonged to our president. The Titleist is numbered 44, a very atypical number for a golf ball, which obviously stands for the 44th president of the United States. It also reads “POTUS” on the opposite side. You have to admit it; it’s a great way for the leader of the free world to mark his balls.

That’s impressive Titleist game from 44, almost in the league of 43’s Golf Cart One.

Given the team of Secret Service and, I’m assuming, a caddie at Obama’s disposal during this outing, one has to wonder why this ball wasn’t retrieved. Any golfer will tell you that losing your ball on #1 sets a miserable precedent for your round of golf. The only explanation that makes sense is that Barry must have hit a TERRIBLE fucking shot. To transition from the excitement of the possibility of scoring low as you approach the first tee box to “fuck that ball” all on the first hole requires a drastic turn of events, like snap-hooking your tee shot 40 yards into the woods.

I just wish there was video.

Dear prez, if you wanted to field some alternative ways to personalize your ball, I’ve come up with a few suggestions:

1. Titleist, number: 69 – inscription: Barry Long Dick

2. Titleist, number: 39% – inscription: Approval Rating

3. Titleist, number: 2 – inscription: Terms

4. Titleist, number: 44 – inscription: Biden plays Top Flites

5. Titleist, number: $4 golf ball – inscription: Please return to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    Reaches over the sneeze guard at Chipotle. Calls an economy fixed because there’s double the amount of part time jobs and 10% less active work work. Fucks up American foreign policy so bad that the Cold War restarts.

    And now he can’t even fairway off the first fucking hole.

      I like Rand. I wasn’t sold on him until recently, but he’s significantly less crazy than his dad.

    He’s the type of golfer that should be using Top Flight or Pinnacle. Wasting ProV1’s like he’s wasting our tax dollars…

      Technically since he gets a salary from tax dollars and he likely bought these balls with said money, then he is in fact wasting our tax dollars with every shitty shot he has.

        Bro… I have no idea what you are trying to say that would be any different from what the guy you replied to said.

        I’d venture a guess here that POTUS doesn’t have to buy his own golf balls…but that’s just me

      Being a bogey golfer and still using ProV1’s is FaF as long as you aren’t Obama.

      He’s left handed so he’d be slicing it too far left…. But the though is there so I’ll allow it.

    If he golfs like he runs our country, there are probably about 10 more where that came from.
