Former US President Barack Obama has been given a New Zealand Breakers singlet by new owner Matt Walsh.

The former NBA player was snapped with Mr Obama on the golf course, handing him a singlet with his name on the back and the number '44' as he was the 44th President of the United States.

Mr Obama is in New Zealand to speak to 1000 invited guests at an event run by the NZ-US Council in Auckland, but in the days leading up to the event has spent plenty of time of the golf course, most notably with former Prime Minister John Key.

Mr Walsh, 35, was part of a group which purchased the Breakers last month, alongside Adam Goodman, Romie Chaudhari, Dan Katz and former NBA legend Shawn Marion.
