MOST DUFFERS get first-tee jitters. Can you imagine how shaky you'd be if you were golfing with President Obama?

Tiger Woods now knows that feeling.

The president decided to escape the pressures of the White House by spending the weekend at the Floridian Golf and Yacht Club in Palm City, Fla.

While the president was enjoying a few days with his golfing buddies, his wife and daughters were skiing out west. There was no word on Michelle's reaction to her hubby fraternizing with Woods, who was treated for sex addiction after numerous extramarital affairs that led to a divorce from Elin Nordegren. But we digress.

The Prez and Tiger played a round Sunday along with Jim Crane, who owns the Floridian (and the Houston Astros), and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk. Obama must be quite the competitor. According to reports, he got together with Butch Harmon, Tiger's former swing coach, for a few pointers on Saturday.

There was no word on who won Sunday's round.

We did, however, hear that all of Obama's drives went far left.

Kris crisis?

We've heard of athletes missing games to be present while their wives give birth. If a TMZ report is to be believed, Nets forward Kris Humphries might miss a few games to attend his divorce trial.

Reality-TV star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce 2 1/2 months after marrying Humphries in August of 2011. Not to be outdone, Humphries filed for an annulment saying Kardashian married him to garner publicity for her TV show, "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."

If the Nets make the playoffs, they could conceivably play on May 6, the day the divorce trial begins. TMZ, citing sources, reported that Kris said he will skip games to attend the trial so that he can dispute any of Kim's claims.

In case you're wondering, May 6 works out just fine for Kim. She wants to have the trial over before July when her child with Kanye West is due.
