Former President Obama Receives Really Cool Christmas Gift
Former President Barack Obama received a really cool Christmas gift from his wife Michelle on Thursday – a drawing of the 12th hole at Augusta National.
The drawing was done by Valentino Dixon.
“Happy Holidays everyone ,Michelle Obama purchased this Augusta National 12th hole 20×30 drawing for Barack as a Christmas gift, it was an honor and a privilege, God is good,” writes Dixon on Instagram.
Obama is an avid golfer and currently is classified as a middle-handicapper.
Dixon was wrongfully accused of murder before being exonerated in 2018 after serving 27 years in prison.
Back in October, there was an HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel did a story on him and his case.
The drawing of Augusta National is Dixon’s first as a free man, according to Golf Digest.
*EDITOR’S NOTE: Previous reporting said that the drawing was purchased for $5,000. That has since been retracted. GolfNewsRI has corrected our story. Sorry for the error.
