Humana Challenge Delayed, But Clinton "Loved it"
LA QUINTA - Former President Bill Clinton was on the greens today and said he enjoyed the Humana Challenge despite the wind.
"Even yesterday with all the wind and dust, it was fascinating," said President Clinton. "I hit one ball into the wind and it was like a wall, I hit another one with the wind and it was like a jet plane," said Clinton.
The former president took off on the fourth day of the Humana Challenge, where he stopped by every day during the tournament. His Clinton Foundation and Humana partnered to revive the formerly-named Bob Hope Classic.
"He's ever so gracious as always. To be able to accommodate everybody. It was lovely, and actually he kissed me on the cheek. I was delighted," said Basia Hoffman, of Palm Desert.
President Clinton signed on to with the Humana Challenge for eight years.
I just think it's going to be a very successful start to a great tradition," said John Foster, President of the Humana challenge.
Clinton used his start power to bring in top golfers and celebrities to play in La Quinta over the past four days.
"I loved it. I loved the whole thing. It's a great beautiful place," said Clinton.
