(AP) Former President George W. Bush says President Barack Obama should not be criticized for the amount of golf he plays.


In an excerpt from "In Play with Jimmy Roberts," airing Tuesday night on the Golf Channel, Bush says he understands the pressures of the White House and that playing golf is a good outlet.


"You know, I see our president criticized for playing golf. I don't I think he ought to play golf," Bush says in the interview. "Because I know what it's like to be in the bubble. And I know the pressures of the job. And to be able to get outside and play golf with some of your pals is important for the president. It does give you an outlet."


Fifteen of the last 18 presidents have played golf, and two are in the World Golf Hall of Fame Dwight D. Eisenhower and George H.W. Bush. Eisenhower was a member at Augusta National.
