(Newser) – Since leaving the White House, George W. Bush has become a painter and a pal of a former first lady. On Wednesday, he posted a photo about a new accomplishment: notching his very first hole-in-one, reports Golfweek. It came on the par-3, 164-yard 12th hole at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. For the record, he used an 8-iron, notes NBC Fort Worth/Dallas. "Next golf goal: live to 100 so I can shoot my age," joked Bush. He's got 28 years to go for that. Bush temporarily gave up golf while in the White House, but the Washington Post notes the decision came after he took flak in 2002 for being at a golf course when he said: "I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you. Now watch this drive." (Read more George W. Bush stories.)
