United States of America President Barack Obama took a little rest and relaxation in Martha’s Vineyard a month or so ago and hit the links to play some golf. Just like most Americans he shanked his shot and yelled at himself.

From TMZ Sports:

The President of the United States just got a scolding … from the President of the United States — after he botched a golf shot … and TMZ has the footage.

The video was taken on August 17 when Barack Obama was playing a round at the Vineyard Golf Club on Martha’s Vineyard.

After B.O. sliced his shot, you can hear him yell something that sounds like, “C’MON BARACK … not THAT far left.”

He immediately assumed his golfing position and tried to recreate his swing in what appears to be an effort to diagnose the problem.

The footage was shot a considerable distance away from Barack and his 4-some … probably due to the scary guys with earpieces and guns.

With all that being said, he still was a lot politer to himself than I am after I shank a golf shot. Of course I’m trying to blame wind or clubs, or course conditions. Yes, I’m that guy Dude Perfect.

    Nice post Mike!

    Oh yes, golf has even bitten the president! We’ve all done this at least once (Some of us using profanities) but it’s kind of part of the game. Maybe it’s becoming a golfing tradition lol. You never know, but shanking is no fun especially when in your mind you think you got a good shot ready.
