Ace golfer Tiger Woods plans to play golf with President Obama soon.

President Obama gave the answer any golfer would give when asked if he'd like to play a round with Tiger Woods.

"I'd love to," Obama said.

Woods detailed the brief conversation the two men had on his Web site Wednesday. That talk took place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial two days before Obama''s inauguration. Woods was one of the many celebrities who addressed the crowd and spoke warmly of his father''s military service and of others who wear the uniform.

Woods described Obama as a man having “great leadership qualities, and his accomplishment truly embodies what''s best about America."

"He represents what we as Americans have in common, not perceived differences," Woods said.

"I did ask him if he wanted to play golf and he said, 'I'd love to.' So we'll make it happen," Woods writes in his web site.
