George W. Bush's Connection to Golf

You learn something new everyday.

I just read an interesting article about former President George W. Bush's love for the game of golf and his storied family connection to the sport. I knew "W" played golf, but I had no idea he had family ties to the game that date back to the 1920s.
Most desert golfers know that Bush's father, President George H.W. Bush, played in the 1995 Bob Hope Classic along with then-President Bill Clinton and former President Gerald Ford.

But George W. Bush's family has been involved with golf at the highest levels. His grandfather, Prescott Bush, was the president of the United States Golf Association in 1935 in addition to being a U.S. senator from Connecticut. And Bush's great-grandfather, George H. Walker, also was a president of the USGA in 1920.

The biennial Walker Cup matches between an amateur team from the United States and a team from Great Britain and Ireland is named for George H. Walker, who donated a trophy to the competition.
According to Barney Adams (founder of Adams Golf), who is a regular playing partner of George, the former president isn't all that great, but he's very competitive. Here's a funny exchange between Barney and the president.
“The first time we met on the course I said, ‘Hi, I'm Barnyard,' and he said ‘I'm W,'” Adams recalled. “On the third hole, he had a 6-footer (putt) and said, ‘When I was president they gave me these.' I said, ‘You're away.'”
I know people have mixed opinions about W, but I would jump at the opportunity to play a round of golf with the former president. Heck, I can't think of a past president I wouldn't want to tee it up with. Regardless of your feelings toward their policy, I would love to hear some of their stories. I'd even hit the links with Barrack Obama if given the chance.
