TheDailyBeast: Presidential Golfing Style

Gerald Ford

Gerald Ford took on the challenge of the presidency “under extraordinary circumstances,” as he put it when taking his oath of office in 1974, after Richard Nixon was forced to resign. Ford was respected as president for instilling calm after a storm and putting his efforts into rebuilding a country in shambles. His stance on the golf course was equally steady and focused. “No president ever tried harder at the game than Gerald Ford,” wrote Arnold Palmer in his biography. Ford always played fair, unlike other presidents with which Palmer hit the links. “One indication of his passion is that if you tried to give him a putt, he would never take it but insist on trying to make it.” His uniform was a lucky polo shirt with an above-the-breast inscription that read, “Mr. President—Bogie Buster.”
