Governor Steve Beshear took to the greens with golf legend Tiger Woods on Wednesday as part of the Greenbrier Classic Pro-Am.

Beshear played in a foursome with Tiger Woods teeing off at 7:00 am Wednesday morning in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

Responding to questions from Pure Politics, Terry Sebastian, the governor’s communications director said Beshear, who is an avid golfer, was “thrilled” to play with Woods who has won every major event in the sport.

Woods has not been playing well recently, but national commentators said Woods had a good showing on Wednesday after a poor performance at the U.S. Open just two weeks ago.

Beshear’s team shot nine under par, and the governor picked up three strokes for the team, Sebastian said.

The official start of the Greenbrier Classic starts Thursday, and continues through Sunday. Golfers are competing for a $6.7 million purse.
