You should probably let the President win… right?!
Well not if you’re a certain former pro athlete, who we are just learning has been hustling Barack Obama on the golf course! LOLz!!
It all started when the president went to Las Vegas to meet with newspaper owner Brian Greenspun on a fundraiser the media exec was hosting for a politician.
While there, President Obama ran into WHICH former pro athlete who hustled him out of some money on the links??
That’s right, it was Derek Jeter!!!
The former MLB star is living chill after retiring from the New York Yankees and yes, even playing a little golf!
Greenspun and Obama hit the golf course in their free time, and were joined by Jeter, who lied just a little bit about his golf talents, according to the President:
“[Greenspun] and Derek Jeter stole money from me at Shadow Creek. It was clearly a set up, because when we got to the practice range, [Derek] was shanking balls everywhere. I said, ‘You play golf Derek?’ And he said, ‘I just started 2 weeks ago.'”
Obama, being the competitive man that he is, ended up having to pay up when Jeter wiped the floor — er, golf course — with him:
“We had to take a picture of me handing Derek Jeter money at the end of the game. Despite that, Brian is a great friend.”
Poor Mr. President! Something tells us that next time, he shouldn’t believe a pro athlete who says he’s not very good at a sport.
