Obama, Woods to Tee Up

Who would have ever thought that Obama and Tiger Woods would tee up for some golf?

The Boston Herald reported Friday that the world famous golfer will likely hit the links with President Obama at the exclusive Vineyard Golf Club during the president's vacation in Martha's Vineyard, Mass.

Tipsters informed the Herald that Secret Service agents recently invaded the country club.

“The Secret Service was all over the course,” one source told the newspaper. “They’re hard to miss in those big black Suburbans with the blacked-out windows.”

The paper added that Mr. Obama's and Woods's schedules share a gap that would allow them to take in 18 holes. The president is expected to leave the Vineyard Aug. 30, a day or so before Woods is expected to arrive at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Former President Clinton's golfing companion Vernon Jordan, a Washington and New York power broker, arranged the outing, the Herald reported. The White House wouldn't return the newspaper's calls.

The Herald calls the club "one of the country’s most expensive private courses with a reported $350,000 membership fee — down in deference to the recession from $500,000."
