The press was kept away from the Floridian in Port St. Lucie while Tiger Woods and Barack Obama played over the weekend, but what went on is now being discussed.

If you're partnering up with Tiger Woods, chances are good that you're going to win any round of golf. Tiger spoke to the media on Tuesday about his time with President Obama at the Floridian Golf Club on the Treasure Coast.
The world's most famous golfer teamed up with the President in a round against Floridian owner Jim Crane and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk. Guess what? Woods says he and Obama won.
Tiger called the opportunity to play golf with the President something you don't turn down. He was apparently invited by the White House to spend some time at the Floridian with Barack Obama, but Woods says it wasn't as simple as the President calling him and saying "Hey Tiger, want to play a round of golf?"
Woods says Obama hit the ball well and could develop into a good golfer once he gets a little free time.
No word on when the President will play golf again, but Tiger was speaking in Arizona, getting ready for the Match Play Championship, which begins on Wednesday.
Woods will be back in our area later this month for the Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens. It will be his second shot at the tournament as a pro and his second chance to beat the world's number one golfer Rory McIlroy, who defeated Tiger by 2 shots in last year's Honda Classic.
