Barack Obama golf photo shows his hilarious putting pose

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. In the case of President Barack Obama's recent golf excursion during his vacation on Martha's Vineyard, one picture reveals that his putting game wasn't going as well as he would have liked. While golfing at the Farm Neck Golf Club, Obama was caught in the act trying to coax his ball in the right direction as it veered toward the left.

Photographers and journalists aren't typically allowed to join Obama while he plays games of golf, but this case was an exception. Maybe it was his smooth poses that the White House was trying to hide in past situations, though we're glad the world can now see the president in all his golfing glory.

Obama was out golfing with aide Marvin Nicholson, investor Robert Wolf and chef Sam Kass. The foursome left the golf course after five hours.
