Former President George W. Bush and current presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry are both using golf to raise money.

But for very different reasons.

Bush is encouraging golfers to pay an extra dollar in green fees for a Patriot Golf Day through Labor Day weekend.

Perry is asking supporters for $76 in campaign donations. Why the number 76? That's the number of rounds of golf Obama has reportedly played since he took office.

Perry's campaign manager Rob Johnson told supporters in the email to donate money to, "Help us yell a pre-emptive 'fore' before the president takes a three-iron to the economy and makes matters worse."
