VIDEO: President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner Hit The Links Saturday

Via the Associated Press video feed, some footage below of President Barack Obama playing a round of golf Saturday against Speaker of the House John Boehner. President Obama played alongside Vice President Joe Biden, while Speaker Boehner chose Ohio Governor John Kasich as his playing partner.


While the 2011 U.S. Open was occurring roughly 30 miles away at Congressional Country Club, the foursome played at the par-72 East Course at Andrews Air Force Base, one of three 18-hole courses at Andrews. According to Golf Digest's recent list of the Washington's Top 150 Golfers, Boehner, who reportedly shoots in the low-80s, was ranked 43rd. The President was ranked 108th, but his playing partner Biden was rated the 29th best golfer in D.C. (really?)

In what should come as a surprise to no one, the White House has yet to announce whether they will release the actual scores from the match. That seems, ahem, par for the course here in Washington, D.C.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Those sneaky politicians did it again. It appears President Obama played with Speaker Boehner, and Vice President Biden partnered with Governor Kasich. Bipartisan ball-striking. Change we can believe in.
