(TCPalm) President Barack Obama may be the leader of the free world, able to get a golf game with icon Tiger Woods simply by making a phone call.

But when it comes to playing golf, the president is like the rest of us.

He could use some help. And some time.

Obama had plenty of the former last weekend during his weekend golf getaway at the Floridian golf club on the Martin/St. Lucie County line. Not only did Floridian owner Jim Crane offer his exclusive private club so the First Golfer could get in a buddies’ getaway, Crane also flew in top instructor Butch Harmon and his son, Claude III — who have combined to make the Butch Harmon Floridian Learning Center one of the premier training centers in the country — to shave some strokes off Obama’s game.
