President Obama played golf with Tiger Woods at the Floridian Yacht and Golf Club, the White House confirmed on Sunday.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/17/obama-tiger-woods_n_2707274.html
Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement that the president golfed with Woods, resort owner Jim Crane, and U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk.
The president is currently on a three-day getaway in Palm City, Fla. while First Lady Michelle Obama and daughers Malia and Sasha ski out West. Obama arrived at the Floridian, an exclusive golf resort on Florida's Treasure Coast, on Friday evening, and will return to the White House on Monday.

anywyas, apparently the White House Correspondents Association is a bit miffed about the whole thing:
The White House Correspondents Association complaint about access to President Obama during his weekend golf outing is part of a longstanding tension between a press corps that always wants more access, and a press office that seems reflexively prone to denying it. This time, there’s an added territorial dimension, as Golf Digest reporter Tim Rosaforte managed to scoop the White House press on President Obama’s golf outing with pioneering golfer Tiger Woods, and while White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest correctly noted that this weekend’s press shutout is par for the course, no one has bothered to explain why Woods is apparently too radioactive to merit even an official photo.http://www.mediaite.com/online/white-house-press-access-complaint-obscures-real-story-why-keep-tiger-woods-under-wraps/
