Tiger Woods meets Barack Obama

On a day when he met with his Cabinet and visited CIA headquarters, President Barack Obama made room for a favorite pastime: talking sports with top professionals.

Members of the Chicago White Sox dropped by the White House on Monday, as did golf star Tiger Woods.

Obama chatted with players from his favorite baseball team who were in the Washington area to play the Baltimore Orioles.

Presidential staffers say Obama, an occasional golfer, greeted Woods in the Oval Office.

Woods got a tour of the White House from Marvin Nicholson, an Obama aide who once caddied at the Augusta golf course, where Woods tied for sixth place in this year's Master's tournament.

White House aides said Woods happened to be in Washington and was invited to stop by.
