President Barack Obama comes through in the clutch -- at least when it comes to sports.
Approximately two dozen spectators had gathered to watch the shot, and his reaction to the round-ending chip-in can definitely be added to the list of reasons why he's the coolest president in history.
The scene was perfectly set for the picturesque mic drop. As Obama walked down the 18th fairway, the sun set behind Oahu's Ko'olau Mountains.
"The president, wearing a grey golf shirt, dark shorts, a cap and a white glove on his right hand, took his position on the fringe about 40 feet from the hole, squatted down for a better view, then took a few practice swings before chipping the ball in," Julie Hirschfeld Davis, a White House correspondent for the New York Times, wrote in a press pool report.
As the video shows, Obama victoriously drops his wedge before spinning around to point at nearby press and spectators.
"A cheer went up when he made the shot, and POTUS raised both arms in triumph, then turned and pointed in your pool's direction, in a 'You guys saw that, right?' kind of a gesture, although he didn't say a word," Davis wrote.
Ironically, as Obama was stunning spectators with his short game Monday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was attacking the president during a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan for how much time he spends on the links.
"It was reported today he played 250 rounds of golf and he's going to be in Hawaii, I think did they say for three weeks?" Trump said of Obama. "Two hundred and fifty rounds, that's more than a guy who plays in the PGA Tour plays. He played more golf last year than Tiger Woods."
While Obama is definitely an avid golfer, Trump's statement is misleading for two important reasons.
First, CNN reported that Obama has played 247 rounds of golf since taking office in 2008 -- which averages to about 35 games a year. And while there are around 47 events in the PGA Tour, it should be noted that, at his peak, Tiger Woods' daily golf practice sessions last seven to eight hours in length.
