Derek Jeter Hustled President Obama on the Golf Course
President Barack Obama revealed at a recent fundraiser that he got hustled on the links by former Yankee Derek Jeter.
Obama told the amusing story at a fundraiser for the Nevada Democratic Party, which was held at Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun’s home. The commander-in-chief recalled how Greenspun and Jeter “stole money” from him at a Las Vegas golf course.
He said, “It was clearly a set-up because when we got to the practice range, [Jeter] was shanking balls everywhere. I said, ‘You play golf Derek?’ And he said, ‘I just started two weeks ago.’”
Obama said that he gave the former Yankee captain a healthy handicap, but realized his error when Jeter smashed his first shot right down the fairway.
“We had to take a picture of me handing Derek Jeter money at the end of the game,” Obama said.
