Tiger Woods provided a glimpse at his private weekend round of golf with US President Barack Obama, saying on Tuesday that it had been a "pretty cool" experience

Woods, the first African-American golfer to win a major title from his 1997 triumph at the Masters, and Obama, the first African-American to be elected as US President, teed off together on Sunday at a luxury golf resort in Florida.

“Playing with Mr. President was pretty cool,” Woods said. “He’s just a wonderful person to be around. And we won.”
