London, April 20(ANI): US President Barack Obama's love for golf seems to exceed his predecessor George Bush's fascination with the game.

Obama has played golf 32 times since he took office, which is apparently eight times more than Bush did in his entire presidency.

After his trip to Krakow for the funeral of Lech Kaczynski got cancelled due to flying bans over Europe, the US president immediately headed to the course, reports the Telegraph.

Meanwhile, the Warsaw Business Post in Poland carried a headline that read: "Obama goes golfing instead of attending Kaczynskis' funeral".

Bush was often criticized for playing golf during his tenure.

However, he had ultimately decided to quit.

He ha said in 2008: "I don't want to some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander-in-chief playing golf... And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal." (ANI)
