Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has a reputation for clutch performances. But it looks like he may have saved his best for the golf course... with former President Barack Obama in attendance.

According to Golf Channel analyst Tim Rosaforte, Fitzgerald hosted a four-man golf tournament at the Seminole Golf Club in Florida that included the former president.

Per Rosaforte, Fitzgerald recorded a hole-in-one on one of the most difficult courses in the entire country.

At the 13th hole, Fitzgerald hit a 162-yard shot that most golfers have a high level of difficulty with.

Upon making the shot, Fitzgerald got awarded with a high five from the 44th President and the other members of the tournament, including club president Jimmy Dunne.

The 35-year-old Cardinals wide receiver is the NFL's active leader in every major receiving category, and ranks in the top-10 all-time as well.

He is behind only the legendary Jerry Rice in career receiving yards.

2018 was a bit of a down year for him though, as he had a career-low 734 receiving yards catching passes primarily from rookie Josh Rosen.

Fitzgerald already has a strong reputation as a renaissance man in the NFL, demonstrating a wide variety of talents and interests outside of football alone.

But getting a hole-in-one, on a difficult golf course, with the former President of the United States just a few feet away? That's an entirely different level of clutch.
