Fitzgerald plays golf with Obama, gets a hole-in-one

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald experienced a moment to remember on Friday when he recorded a hole-in-one when playing alongside former United States president Barack Obama. Not to be outdone...well, let's go to the tweets from Golf Channel analyst Tim Rosaforte. Fitzgerald reportedly made the hole-in-one at around 1:30 p.m. Friday, and the golf club's President, Jim Dunne, even waived a no cellphone rule on the course so that Fitzgerald could deliver the message. It's unclear if that was the first hole-in-one ever, but by the sound of it it's tough to do on that hole at Seminole Golf Club. Fitzgerald, who also hit the green, quickly broke into celebration as the ball rolled directly into the hole for an ace.

The 35-year-old Arizona Cardinals wide receiver is a future National Football League hall of famer and won the pro-am portion of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am last year. Rounding out the foursome was (Seminole Golf Club president Jimmy) Dunne and Glenn Hutchins, a part owner of the Boston Celtics and Obama Foundation board member.


January 18, 2009 will stand as one of the shining moments of Fitzgerald's Hall of Fame career, with three touchdown catches in the NFC Championship Game to help send the Cardinals to their first Super Bowl in franchise history.

Fitzgerald is such a huge fan of golf that he actually spends a lot of his offseason playing the sport.
