THE GOLF SWING OF PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSHGolf Swing Video below
Bush's Golf Swing HighlightsWhat kind of golfer is President Bush?
He's got a lot of ability, and he's probably as quick a player as his father. It's amazing how quick. He hits his tee ball well (Note the Smooth swing below) but needs some work on his short game. They do not dally at all.
George W. Bush sports a legitimate 15 handicap, which is pretty good considering how little time he has to play the game. George doesn't take a lot of mulligans and he's also good about keeping his score accurately. He's also good about paying his bets when he loses, as I learned from one of his recent golf partners.
Bush shares his type of golf play with his father, who served in the Oval Office from 1989 to 1993. George W. Bush and his father, President Bush, play what they call polo golf, cart golf, electric golf -- there are lots of different names for it, but basically it's blindingly fast play, They don't wait or dawdle between shots. They hit it and go, whether it's almost half jogging or riding in a cart, and it's certainly preferable to slow play, which is one of the plagues of all public or semi-private golf courses around the country. Golfers will know what I mean when I say that.
The father and son had a hand in one of the most impressive golfing comebacks in recent history -- the U.S. team's Ryder Cup victory. When the team was losing, George W. Bush fired them up by reading to them the letter that Col.William Barrett Travis wrote from the Alamo when it was surrounded by the Mexican Army, it was a "great lift" to American team. Governor Bush came in a read a speech ... It was a great speech, great words," said Ryder Cup team captain Ben Crenshaw after the victory.
If all the living past presidents got together to play a round of golf, I would place my bet on Bush to win. If Bush does have a weakness, it's his short game. George doesn't spend enough time pondering the break and pace of his putts -- preferring a fast game to putting precession.
The above comments and observation were made by Ben Chenshaw and other golf notables.
George W. Bush is the 43rd President of the United States. Formerly the 46th Governor of the State of Texas, President Bush has earned a reputation as a compassionate conservative who shapes policy based on the principles of limited government, personal responsibility, strong families and local control.
