Talk about a dynamic duo.
President Obama, the nation's first golfer, teed it up Sunday with Tiger Woods, their first golf outing together.
Tim Rosaforte of Golf Digest and Golf Channel called it a historic moment, watching Obama and Woods ride off in a golf cart, headed for perhaps 27 holes.
The duo were playing at The Floridan Golf Club in Palm City, Fla.
This comes a day after Obama spent some time getting tips from Woods' former swing coach, Butch Harmon, and his son Claude.
Here are a couple of tweets from Rosaforte:
"Not going to turn this into Tiger Tracker, but from pro shop at Floridian we received word TW holed out greenside bunker No. 1 for birdie."
"The President is arriving at The Floridian range. Awaiting is Tiger Woods and club owner Jim Crane. Historic day in golf. Their first round."
Rosaforte also said, in an interview on Golf Channel, Woods was putting on a show, even driving the green on a 378-yard par-4.
"We had a big day today," Crane, who owns the Houston Astros, told MLB.com.
"Well, when you get to play with the president and Tiger Woods in the same round, that's one that doesn't happen every day and it might not happen again," Crane said. "It was a lot of fun. The President was very cordial, and Tiger had a lot of fun and hit some great shots. We had a lot of fun."
About Obama's golf game, Crane said: "He played well today. He made some good shots and had some pars, and I think he shot in the 80s. The weather was nice and we had fun. I think he really enjoyed his visit and we really enjoyed having him in the Floridian, and hopefully we'll have him back some day."
Woods, who is 1-for-1 in PGA Tour events this season, returns to action at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship on Wednesday in Marana, Ariz.
