Check Out What President Obama Claims That Derek Jeter Did To Him

When President Barack Obama went up against New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter on the golf course in Nevada last November, he was under the impression that the Captain was not good at golf.

That proved to be a costly mistake.

President Obama recently discussed his matchup against Jeter, according to Politico’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, and it’s clear the leader of the free world is still a little bitter about what happened that day, as he believes he was hustled:

“[Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun] and Derek Jeter stole money from me at Shadow Creek,” Obama said of Greenspun, referring to the course in North Las Vegas. “It was clearly a setup, because when we got to the practice range, he was shanking balls everywhere. I said, ‘You play golf Derek?’ And he said, ‘I just started two weeks ago.'”

They gave Jeter 30 strokes, Obama said, but he realized that was a mistake as soon as they were on the first hole. Jeter crushed him, he said

“We had to take a picture of me handing Derek Jeter money at the end of the game. Despite that, Brian is a great friend.”

President Obama could have chalked it up to beginner’s luck or gone with the assumption that Jeter hustled him. He chose the latter, which definitely makes for a more intriguing story.

It may be a while before the president agrees to go golfing with Jeter again. If they do go head-to-head on the course once more, it’s certain he will not give the future Hall of Famer any strokes. If anything, the president will be looking for any way to gain an edge on the former shortstop.

Jeter was always known for his hustle on the diamond, and when he retired from baseball, he apparently took his game to the golf course.
