President Obama Didn’t Call Tiger Woods


The White House is denying that President Obama ever called Tiger Woods to offer encouragement following the golfer’s public apology, as was reported by Golf Digest (the claim has now been removed from the story). Golf Digest has yet to explain whether they got some bad information, or just assumed that Obama had reached out to a fellow member of the Powerful Black Men Club, or what. The part about Bill Clinton calling Woods, however, is apparently true, and makes a lot more sense. [Ben Smith/Politico]
