Obama: the other side

July 27, 2009

Yesterday we posted letters in support of Golf World's item on President Obama's golf, all reacting irately to a letter condemning the story in the July 27 issue. Here are a couple from the other side of the aisle.


Dear Editor,>

I certainly agree with the other readers about keeping Obama out of your fine magazine. The man is not a golfer, has nothing to do with the game and will never understand it's virtues. Stick to what you know and keep the cheap, political PR stunts out of your magazine.

Dear Editor, I agree with Loren Klaus' comment in the July 27 issue. Keeping politics out of golf is a good idea. Less coverage of Obama is always a good idea. by email

For those of you interested in presidential golf, both red and blue, check out Golf Digest's latest story or the USGA.org photo gallery on the subject.
