As we come down to the last days of President Barack Obama’s time in the White House, the belongings of the First Family are hurriedly being moved into their new digs. Unlike Calvin Coolidge, who left his golf clubs behind when he left office, President Obama is taking his somewhat substantial collection of sticks with him.
The Associated Press captured a pair of photographs showing the First Golfer’s clubs being transported to the Obama’s new home in the Kalamazoo neighborhood of Washington, D.C. They reveal a few things about Obama the golfer: First, he’s a lefty and most of his clubs are game-improvement models, suitable for his game (the President, a 13-handicap according to Golf Digest’s recent list of the top 150 golfing politicians, is no threat to anyone’s course record). The majority of the clubs are of older vintage and, fittingly for someone well versed in diplomacy, there are clubs from most of the major manufacturers.
Like most everyday golfers, Obama keeps his clubs in stand bags—two of them, one Nike, one Titlist. The Nike bag contains a pair of drivers under head covers (Cobra F7 and Nike Sumo) as well as an uncovered Call away Great Big Bertha. The fairway woods appear to be old Taylor Made Super Steels (the chipped orange paint perhaps a reflection of the 306 rounds Obama played while in office) and a pair of Titlist Vokey wedges are hiding behind some Nike VR irons and what could possibly be a Cobra knockoff iron. Along with three indistinguishable blade putters is a 2012 Taylor Made Ghost Manta mallet with “U.S. President” engraved on the sole with “U.S.” in red and “President” in blue.
