President Barack Obama recently attended an event held by Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun, and while speaking to the media, shared a funny story about the last time the two were together.
The story involves Derek Jeter playing golf with the two, for money of course. Jeter would come out on top, but the President sounded a bit salty as to how the former Yankees great won.
“He 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 set up, 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.”
D.J. is the greatest.
