President Obama is famous for his love for golf. But when he can’t make it to the golf course, he has a more private location for his golfing fix.

In an interview with Bill Simmons for GQ, the president admitted that he has a virtual driving range in the White House.

“Is it true you have a virtual driving range in the White House?” Simmons asked.

“True,” Obama admitted, but insisted it was “not like some super-fancy thing” but that he could “hit Wiffle balls.”

“So you go down there and hit, like as a stress reliever?” Simmons asked.

“Yeah. Just whack ’em. Whack ’em around a little bit,” Obama replied.

Obama also admitted that he enjoys the show Golf Channel’s “Big Break.”

“Probably the guiltiest pleasure—and this is kind of lame—is Big Break. You know, on the Golf Channel? Which is kind of a silly show. But I find it really relaxing,” he said.

Obama also admitted that he would love to have a part ownership in a NBA team.

“I have fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be,” he said. “I think it’d be terrific.”
