They were a long way from the White House.
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, an avid golfer, hit a hole-in-one during a round with former President Barack Obama in Florida.
The 11-time Pro Bowler’s shot came on the 13th hole of the famed Seminole Golf Club, where Fitzgerald is a member. Obama’s tee shot also found the green on the par-3 hole.
“I’m playing with the President of the United States and I just made a hole in one!” Fitzgerald shouted, according to the Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte. “This is unbelievable!”
Obama and Fitzgerald were playing in a foursome that also included Glen Hutchins, a part owner of the Celtics and board member of the Obama Foundation, and Seminole Golf Club president Jimmy Dunne, Rosaforte tweeted.
Fitzgerald won the 2018 AT&T Pro-Am at Pebble Beach by seven shots alongside partner Ted Potter Jr.
The 15-year veteran NFLer has said he will decide whether or not he’ll return to the Cardinals sometime this offseason, indicating that retirement is a possibility.
“I have a checklist I always got to go through and sometimes I’m able to get to my conclusion faster than others,” Fitzgerald said on SiriusXM, according to Sporting News. “I have to do my due diligence in terms of just taking some time to let your body heal because when you’re sore and your fingers are broken it’s easy to say, ‘I just don’t want to do this anymore, my body is hurting.’”
It’s been 10 years to the day since Fitzgerald caught three passes to help clinch the Cardinals’ first trip to the Super Bowl.
