Golf: Obama says Tiger on 'another planet'

US President Barack Obama marveled Wednesday that playing golf with Tiger Woods was like teeing it up with someone from "another planet." Obama was still shaking his head at the other worldly skill of the 14-times major champion, after meeting up with Woods for their first-ever round together on Sunday. "He plays a different game than I do," said the president, an enthusiastic weekend golfer, whose scores are guarded like a state secret. "He is on another planet," Obama told ABC7 television from San Francisco.
