John Boehner wears his heart on his sleeve and tears up over golf commercial | USA TODAY 1

 

Former Speaker of the House John Boehner is known for becoming emotional on many topics including family, veterans and even an old golf commercial.

RELATED:

He described a favorite ad for the U.S. Golf Association. "They had some kid playing by himself, gets a hole-in-one and he's all upset because there's nobody there to see it," he said.

The slick, 60-second commercial shows a boy playing at dusk, toting his golf bag on his back, not another soul visible across the verdant course to witness his leap of joy.

Until the dramatic twist: A man drives up in a golf cart. "Except the greens superintendent saw it!" Boehner said. Even the memory of that cinematic moment was enough to make tears well in his eyes. He used a handkerchief to wipe them away.
