10 Tips Obama can take from Tiger
By Jeff Thomas
From Mercury News wire reports
It probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Now? Not so much.
The latest edition of Golf Digest features a Photoshopped cover photo of President Barack Obama and prodigious lady's man Tiger Woods, with a headline that says "10 Tips Obama Can Take From Tiger."
The cover and story, of course, were put together before the ever-expanding parade of young female golf enthusiasts began to describe their relationships with the Jedi master of the fairway.
The story also has its cringey moments, praising Woods as "a good role model because he has always been able to pull himself together after setbacks." We'll see!
According to the article, Obama could benefit from a Woods-like agility with image control, the magazine adding: "Tiger never does anything that would make him ridiculous." Ahem.
Here are the 10 tips. Insert your own jokes:
1. The Quick Recovery
2. The Cold Ferocity
3. How to Step on Their Necks
4. The Trouble with Compromise
5. The Value of a Few Majors
6. Controlling the Message — and Spending
7. The Swing Change
8. Clothes the Deal
9. You've got to Deliver
10. The Danger of Looking Ridiculous
