Gone viral: Barack Obama chips in

Leader of the Free World... ?Nobel Peace Prize... ?A short game to rival Phil Mickelson... ?

Posted by Golf Australia on Tuesday, December 22, 2015

The US president, who has been frequently criticised for playing too much golf during his presidency, was enjoying a round at the Mid Pacific Country Club in Lanikai during his two-week annual family holiday in Hawaii.

He pushed his approach to the 18th hole off the green, but confidently read the green and sized up the break before stroking his ball towards the hole.

As it rolls closer you can sense his anticipation – and sure enough it drops in. The leader of the free world is left marvelling at his stroke as the crowd erupted.
