2. George H.W. Bush
"Bush Sr. was not only a pretty good golfer, he was the fastest presidential golfer ever, maybe the fastest golfer ever. Just what the country needed to encourage faster play." —Sports Illustrated senior writer Gary Van Sickle
"He's been ubiquitous at the Presidents Cup. Many of the top American pros now feel like they're friends with him." —Golf Magazine senior writer Cameron Morfit
