“Did you beat Tiger!?” a group of assembled reporters yelled as President Obama touched down on the South Lawn last night after his weekend golf trip.

According to the pool report, Obama just smiled and walked inside.

Very little is known about the president’s golf trip in Florida, as the press complained about their lack of access to the President’s weekend golf trip – including his golf game with Tiger Woods.

“Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend,” said Ed Henry in an official complaint on Sunday night. “There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency.”

The White House Press Pool, however, reported that they accepted a 10 minute “off the record” chat with Obama on the way back to Washington D.C. aboard Air Force One.
