Has the USGA endorsed Obama?

While watching a bit of the US Amateur semi final this afternoon an ad was ran to supposedly promote golf. It came off much different.

It had the feel and sound of a political add but with a very familiar theme and used the word  “democratic” along with the phrases, equal playing field, fairness, fair shot and fair play to name a few. It was promting an ideal or idea more so than the game of golf and sounded just like an Obama stump speech.

It sounded like something straight from the DNC or Team Obama and completely intentional but I can’t believe the USGA would enter the political arena. I wonder if anyone else saw it and if so do you think someone in the USGA PR department could be brave enough to try this on their own?
