“It’s good to see you play well again,” Obama is said to have told Woods. 

The president apparently prepared to hit the links by signing up for a lesson with one of Tiger’s former coaches:

I don’t know who was happier, @43BH and @CH3golf after working with @BarackObama on his swing, or The President after the Harmon tweaking.Tim Rosaforte
No photos were released of the round, though that did not stop the Twitterverse:

W.H. press corps: ‘Extreme frustration… having absolutely no access’ 2 Obama. It’s golf, right? What R U hiding? #WheresMichelle?Paul R McGinn
While Tweeps noted what was going on while the president was at play:
