Caddyshack Gopher

President Obama recently played golf at the course where the movie “Caddyshack” was filmed.

Clad in a blue polo shirt and tan slacks, he played an early afternoon round at Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which boasts that it has a “southern plantation style clubhouse.”

Obama played with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, ambassador Ron Kirk, and Cyrus Walker of the New York-based group benefits firm NEMCO.

“Caddyshack,” a modern-day allegory on class conflict like the kind stoked by Obama’s “political” career, was set at the fictional country club “Bushwood.”

Despite frequently playing golf while the country “struggles” economically, Obama is actually not “very good” at it, according to testimony from a top-ranked golf instructor.

“If I had the opportunity to give the president some help, I would advise him to make a better turn on his back swing, both with his hips and his shoulders…Right now there’s no wind-up, and then there’s a lot of UN-windup…He tends to pull across and slap at shots…It doesn’t look like he has a lot of power,” golf instructor Butch Harmon previously told Golf Digest.

The world needs “ditch” diggers too, Barry.
