Former president and notorious golf cheat Bill Clinton will appear on the Golf Channel this May. Clinton was interviewed in Tampa Bay by David Feherty last month for an episode of Feherty’s self-titled late-night talk show, which airs May 7.
Clinton, who recently said that “one of my great dreams in life is to do an interview with Feherty,” spoke to the host about “his love for golf, the pressures of the presidency, his recent philanthropic efforts with former President George H.W. Bush, and the bronze statue of himself at the famous Ballybunion,” according to a press release. Notably missing from the release: any discussion of Clinton’s dubious history of fudging on the golf course.
Though he once penned a section for Venus Williams’s book “Come To Win” on the virtues of telling the truth about your golf handicap, Clinton earned a reputation among White House pool reporters for taking more than a few mulligans. The extra uncounted shots, otherwise known as “cheating,” were noted by Time and Sports Illustrated during Clinton’s presidency.
During a children’s golf clinic in 2006, Tiger Woods was asked to describe playing golf with the president. Woods replied, “Interesting math.” Apparently during their round together, Clinton took three shots on one hole before picking up his ball and walking off the green. He then marked a 4 for Woods and a 3 for himself for the hole.
