President Obama will spend this President’s Day weekend in sunny Palm Beach, Florida sans the rest of the First Family.

USA Today reports that while he’s there, he’ll get a little private instruction on his golf game from renowned coach Butch Harmon.

President Obama will take a golf lesson from Tiger Woods’ old swing coach this weekend during a quick golf getaway to Florida. Butch Harmon and his son, Claude III, are flying in to work with Obama at their School of Golf at the newly-redesigned Floridian golf course in Palm City.

The report noted that the president’s golf handicap — the number of strokes over par per 18 holes — is rumored to be around 18. Most amateurs would agree that bogey golf isn’t too shabby. Of course, Obama’s had plenty of practice since taking office back in 2009.

Meanwhile, the White House told reporters today that First Lady Michelle and kids Sasha and Malia won’t accompany the president to Florida. Instead, they’ll fly out west for some skiing.
