Today I’m digging up all articles I can find about Barack Obama’s golfing buddies and which clubs he’s golfed at as president. So far, I’ve identified the following men as regular members of Obama’s “foursome”:
* Ben Finkenbinder (a staff member in the Press Office…pictured above giving his “Blue Steel” for the camera. Work it, Mary!)
* David Katz (Department of Energy staff member)
* Marvin Nicholson (WH trip director)
It’s such an odd group of (mostly) young men that I’m surprised Larry Sinclair wasn’t invited to “go golfing” too.
I think I’m also going to dig up a comparison to the men that Bill Clinton golfed with regularly while he was President. I remember those guys being big power brokers like Vernon Jordan, professional golfers like Arnold Palmer, and big-wigs such as Senators and Governors and the like. Clinton didn’t head to the links with twenty-something male staffers he referred to as “The Finkmeister”. It’s just all so strange.
What were these guys really doing together? Obama’s such a terrible golfer…despite all that time supposedly “golfing”…and it’s bizarre to think random, young guys who are an odd fit for a President’s “friends” would be spending such ridiculous amounts of time together engaged in a activity such as “golfing”.
I actually know there’s more to all this and am close to proving it, but first I need to find a good compilation of articles detailing all of Barack Obama’s golfing outings and who he was with.
Can you help research this?
Either post links to Obama golfing articles in this thread or email them to us at HillBuzz.org and I’ll start a nice table on all this showing how frequently Obama golfed with “The Finkmeister” and perhaps we can deduce how Reggie Love or Kal Penn felt about that.
