There were concerns from the media about a lack of access before, during and after the newsworthy outing between these two celebrities. For some reason the White House has prohibited media coverage of Obama's weekend golf outing, which prompted Fox News' Ed Henry, who is the president of the White House Correspondents Association, to issue a statement which said, "a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend."
Joyce Chen of US Weekly has also reported on this historic golfing event, Tiger Woods Joins President Obama in Florida For a Round of Golf.
