President Barack Obama’s three-day Florida golf getaway featuring a round with Tiger Woods opened him to criticism of tone-deafness for playing when he’s at a budget impasse with Congress that threatens automatic spending cuts in less than two weeks.

After spending the President’s Day holiday weekend playing Floridian, a private golf course and club in Palm City, Florida, Obama returned to Washington last night. He faces a March 1 deadline to reach a deal with Congress to avert the $1.2 trillion in automatic cuts, which threaten to crimp the U.S. economic recovery.

Joining Woods as Obama’s playing partners were businessmen and backer Jim Crane, who owns the course as well as the Houston Astros baseball team, Anthony Chase, former deputy chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and Milton Carroll, chairman of Centerpoint Energy Inc. U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, Obama’s Chicago friend Eric Whitaker and presidential aide Marvin Nicholson also joined Obama on the course, according to White House spokesman Josh Earnest.
