Jordan Spieth recently played a star-studded round of golf.

Not with professional golfers—I already called the round “star-studded,” remember?—but with two-time NBA MVP and golf lover Stephen Curry and Barack Obama, who’s had a lot more time on his hands for such things over the last nine months.

The day at the club also included Steph’s brother, Dallas Mavericks point guard Seth Curry, in addition to Under Armour CEO Kevin Planck (all three athletes are sponsors for the brand) and Jerry West’s son Jonnie, who’s an executive with the Golden State Warriors.

According to Spieth, the three-time major champion who’s presently the world’s No. 2-ranked golfer, the former president coolly drained an immensely difficult putt to best him in a pairs matchup.

“We had a two-on-two match, it came down to the last hole. And the President had a 10-foot double-breaking putt—this is my home course and I’ve never seen anybody make the putt,” Spieth told James Corden on The Late Late Show. “And a small crowd had gathered like you’d expect. He kind of said, ‘When there’s a crowd on the last hole, I never miss.’ He steps up and knocks in … perfect speed, right in the middle of the hole.”

Spieth also revealed that the former president had some fun at his expense, ending a long monologue on the importance of the office with “… and you won’t believe what the aliens look like.”
