First Golfers: The Top 10
Dwight D. Eisenhower
During his eight years in office, “Ike” played more than 800 rounds, a quarter of them at Augusta National Golf Club, where he was a member. No President is linked more with golf than Eisenhower, who seems to exist in the American Zeitgeist on the golf course rather than behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office. During an era of prosperity and peace, Eisenhower (along with Arnold Palmer, who came to prominence near the end of Ike's second term) helped popularize the game in the United States.
