Obama’s Golf Game By The Numbers

obama_golfAt this writing, since taking office on 20 January, 2009 (a date which will live in infamy), the President of the United States has played 192 rounds of golf.  Measuring each round as an average of four and a half hours, he has spent 864 hours playing golf.  That doesn’t include prep time before and down time after (19th hole). That’s a lot of time spent putting something other than the country in the hole. So, how does that 864 hours break down?

• 108 8-hour workdays

• Almost 21 40-hour work weeks

• 8.64 non-stop round-trip drives across the United States

• The time it takes to grow the national debt by $98,251,315,200

• Heb burned 159,000 calories (if he used a cart for each round)

  • That’s equal to 45 pounds of weight

• 1,364 Obama convention speeches

Well, I suppose if I were as lousy at my job as he is at his, I’d wanna get out of the office as much as possible, too.  And he doesn’t even get docked for time off!
