TheDailyBeast: Presidential Golfing Style

John F. Kennedy

Given that the Democratic Party gave Eisenhower, Kennedy’s Republican predecessor, quite a bit of flak for putting more time into his golf game than in state affairs, Kennedy was hesitant to get out on the green as president. Shortly before the 1960 election, a near hole-in-one sent JFK into a panic. “If that ball had gone into that hole,” Kennedy said to his partner, “in less than an hour the word would be out to the nation that another golfer was trying to get into the White House.” Once elected, he was a bit more relaxed about playing on occasion, and he is still known to have the best golf game of any U.S. president. With his quintessentially New England style, JFK certainly looked the part.
