TheDailyBeast: Presidential Golfing Style

Barack Obama

President Obama has already played more than 60 rounds of golf since he entered office in 2009. Over the weekend, he and House Speaker John Boehner teed off together in a buzzed-about game seen as an effort to strengthen their sometimes contentious relationship. There was much speculation that the two would take advantage of the game to discuss the debt ceiling in a less formal setting. But they seemed chummy and relaxed in their casual golf attire during Saturday’s game. Boehner had previously quipped about their difference of opinion in reference to the much-anticipated match, joking that each stroke would cost the president a trillion dollars. After Boehner sunk a long putt on the first hole, the president engaged the crowd: “Did you all catch that?” He smiled before turning around and patting his partner on the back. Naturally, the president took the wheel of the golf cart to drive them to the next hole.
