PALM CITY, Fla. (AP) - Tiger Woods' former swing coach says he'll play and practice with President Barack Obama on Saturday.

Obama is at the Floridian resort in Palm City, Fla., for a weekend of golf with friends.

Woods' coach, Butch Harmon, tells The Associated Press in a text message that he'll be with Obama on Saturday afternoon, playing nine holes and practicing.

Harmon was Woods' swing coach when Woods turned pro and reached what many believe to be the peak of his game in the early 2000s.

Harmon was Greg Norman's coach when he was No. 1 in the world in the 1990s.

Harmon has instructed a number of top golfers and he annually ranks No. 1 on magazine lists of golf's best teachers.
