Comedian and Daily Show host Jon Stewart has returned to his post on the Comedy Central news show for the first time since June, according to the Associated Press.
Stewart had taken the time off to film and direct a new movie set to be released next year. While usually more focused on politics and pop culture, Stewart’s Daily Show has also touched on golf-related happenings in recent years. This is especially true whenever a President plays golf in the middle of a national crisis, as Stewart points out in this entertaining video about President Obama playing with Tiger Woods.
While Stewart himself is not much of a golfer, there are obviously fans on his writing staff as evidenced by their long history of poking fun at the sport.
