He’s also supposedly a better golfer than his buddy, President Barack Obama. At least that’s what he told First Lady Michelle Obama and Ellen DeGeneres, and FLOTUS agreed that’s probably true. Curry stopped just short of disclosing the POTUS’s handicap, which he was pretty sure might be top secret information.
But there is one interesting aspect to Obama’s golf game that Curry was able to disclose: Obama’s a trash talker. He talks smack in that cool Barry O. way that you’re probably familiar with if you’ve listened to any single speech of his over the last two terms he’s been in office. Of course, having the most powerful person in the world as your golf opponent is probably really intimidating, but the First lady had a simple remedy that maybe could have helped Curry in the finals last year: talk smack. Make fun of Obama’s ears while he’s putting, go to town.
That’s easier than it sounds. As Curry pointed out. President Obama has a lot of armed secret service guys around him. “He just gives them the look and I’m out of there,” Curry responded.
