Woodrow Wilson

Handicap: 25-30  | Rounds played: 1000 | Per year Average: 150

wilsonThe ultimate golfing U.S. president, Woodrow Wilson is said to have played over 1,000 rounds of golf during his presidency. He would debate policy while swinging his golf clubs and allegedly even met his second wife, Edith, after playing a round of golf.

During World War I, Wilson is said to have taken to the links daily, finding the sport essential during that stressful time. He even ordered his secret servicemen to paint the golf balls black, so that he could play in the snow.

But even with all those visits to the golf course, he couldn’t improve his game, rarely breaking 100. This might have been due to his arteriosclerosis and the two minor strokes he suffered before entering office.
