Barack Obama presented with Scotty Cameron putter, Ping driver and Callaway wedges
President Barack Obama met earlier this week with United States Ryder Cup captain Davis Love, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson. In addition to inviting the commander in chief to attend the Ryder Cup next year at Medinah, Love gave the President a uniquely stamped Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2 putter.
Mickelson gave President Obama, who is a fellow left-hander, three Callaway X Forged wedges and a 9.5° Callaway Diablo Octane driver. Each of the wedges (a 56°, 60° and 64°) was made by Roger Cleveland personally and was stamped PREZ "44" on the back. Cleveland jokingly said, "I weighted them so they wouldn't go any further left."
Watson presented President Obama with an exact replica of his driver, a Ping G15 (7.5°) with a Grafalloy Bi-Matrix shaft. Maybe Obama will use the clubs when he plays Saturday with Republican House Speaker John Boehner.
