Tiger Woods Did NOT Get Barack Obama Phone Call

Posted: Updated:

Last week, Golf Digest issued one of the most comprehensive Tiger Woods reports since his post-Thanksgiving car accident. Among the new details was the revelation that Woods had received calls from Presidents Obama and Clinton.

Turns out, he only heard from Clinton. As ESPN notes, Golf Digest has since issued a correction. The article originally accounted for calls from both presidents:

President Obama also made a personal call to offer encouragement. So did Bill Clinton, whose experience might be particularly instructive.

The piece has since been amended to quote Obama from a People magazine interview:

"I'm a strong believer that anybody can look within themselves, find their flaws and fix them," President Obama said. Bill Clinton, whose experience might be particularly instructive, made a personal call to offer encouragement.
