If you thought Aaron Rodgers would take it easy on President Barack Obama during their round of golf in April, you're dead wrong.

During an interview with former Green Bay Packers teammate A.J. Hawk for his podcast, "The Hawkcast," Rodgers revealed that he was nervous to go up against Obama, but ended up shooting his best round of the year - a 75.

"That gets me 10 times more nervous than the first snap in a game or a snap in the fourth quarter when you've got to make a play," Rodgers said, according to ESPN's Jason Wilde. "I'm worried about hitting people, I'm worried about whiffing, I'm worried about looking terrible out there.

"I want to play well out there and obviously you walk on the first tee with the leader of the free world - who's competitive - (and) I didn't want to go out there and embarrass myself. Luckily I put together a decent round and made some putts. But I was very nervous at the first tee."

Rodgers' foursome also included retired astronaut Mark Kelly and Tony Kornheiser of ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption." They were golfing at The Courses at Andrews Air Force Base, which has three 18-hole courses with par 71 and 72.

Although he didn't disclose what Obama shot, Rodgers did say he allowed the President some "gimme" putts.

"As many as I could," he said. "'That's good, Mr. President.'"
