In case we needed a reminder: There is absolutely nothing that Larry Fitzgerald cannot do.

While weighing his decision on whether he will return to the Arizona Cardinals next season, Fitzgerald played a round of golf with former president Barack Obama on Friday -- and reportedly hit a hole in one while doing so.

While golfing with Obama at the Seminole Golf Club in Florida, Fitzgerald reportedly made the shot on the 13th hole. Sadly, there doesn't appear to be any video of the feat, but here's what we know thanks to Golf Channel's Tim Rosaforte:

Fitzgerald had the honor of hosting former President Barack Obama, who was playing the exclusive Juno Beach, Fla., course for the first time. Rounding out the foursome was (Seminole Golf Club president Jimmy) Dunne and Glenn Hutchins, a part owner of the Boston Celtics and Obama Foundation board member. Dunne, who advocated Fitzgerald's club membership last year, provided the details: Obama had just hit his approach shot 20 feet from the hole when Fitzgerald stepped up with an 8-iron from 162 yards out and jarred it.

"I'm playing with the President of the United States and I just made a hole-in-one," shouted Fitzgerald into his phone. "This is unbelievable!"

Fitzgerald is an avid golfer who won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February. His hole-in-one Friday reportedly rolled in "like a putt," and Fitzgerald received a high-five from President Obama himself.

Oh, and Fitzgerald's feat came exactly 10 years after he caught three touchdowns in the NFC Championship Game to lead the Cardinals to their first and only Super Bowl appearance.
