JCOM alum (almost) hits the links with Bill Clinton

July 4th, 2010 Posted in Sports

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—JCOM alumnus Cody Huot, an assistant golf pro in Arizona at the TPC Scottsdale, pals around with visiting duffer President Bill Clinton, who was in town for a couple of rounds with some local political cronies.

Huot, a former Aggie golf team stand-out who graduated in public relations from USU in 2006, manages the outside staff at the two TPC golf courses in Scottsdale.

He writes, “He had six carts of Secret Service out there with him. He hit like five balls a hole and is a mad man in the golf cart! He shot in the 90s for sure but I don’t think he was keeping score.

“Unfortunately I did not get to play with him but I talked to him before his round and gave him all the course information,” Huot says. “When he finished I cleaned his clubs and walked with Secret Service to his entourage of Chevy SUV’s and put his clubs away.”

Also pictured are the TPC golf pro, manager and tournament director.

“It really was a great experience,” Huot says, “and the president is a super nice guy.”
