President Obama golfs with Tiger Woods

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - President Barack Obama was joined by quite the golfing partner on Sunday when the world's former top golfer, Tiger Woods, hit the links with the Commander-in-Chief at the Floridian Golf Club.

White House officials confirmed the president played golf with Woods, as well as Houston Astros and Floridian owner Jim Crane.

President Obama's weekend golf vacation also included lessons from noted golf instructor and Wood's former swing coach, Butch Harmon.

Outside the exclusive golf club on Sunday, the only movement was that of the multiple St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputies circling the compound.

A black van stopped outside the Floridian just before 5 p.m. carrying members of the traveling press corps. The journalist sat inside the vehicle at a different entrance waiting to gain access to the Floridian.

No picture or video has been released of President Obama during his trip.

White House officials confirmed President Obama is scheduled to return to Washington D.C. on Monday. The time of his departure has yet to be set.
