Maybe what has been missing in Tiger Woods’ golf game is a lucky charm like Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear.
Beshear and Woods played Wednesday in a foursome in the Greenbrier Classic Pro-Am at the Old White TPC Course in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.
The superstar golfer, who has been struggling, did just fine, and the Democratic governor was no chump.
Woods reportedly hit every fairway and green on the front nine ahead of this week’s PGA Tour event in West Virginia, and Beshear picked up three of the strokes for the team’s 9-under-par score, according to Beshear spokesman Terry Sebastian. Their team teed off at 7 a.m.
“As an avid golfer, the governor was thrilled to play with such a golf legend as Woods,” Sebastian said.
Woods has won 14 major tournaments, but he played miserably in the recent U.S. Open at Chambers Bay in Washington, where he failed to make the cut.On Wednesday, Woods posted a two-under 32 on the front nine at the Greenbrier.
There was no immediate word whether Beshear, whose term as governor ends in December, is pondering a career in golf.
