Golfers Come Calling

The president is headed to Camp David this morning ... maybe to practice his putting? Golf fans have been saying (okay, praying) that Obama might drop by Congressional Country Club to see Tiger Woods and other pros play. Woods invited the president to the tournament in April; the White House declined to release Obama's schedule for today.

But the president has clearly turned into a serious duffer. Almost every weekend he's in town, he heads to a local course (Andrews Air Force Base, Fort Belvoir) for nine or 18 holes with administration pals, including Joe Biden on Father's Day. His scores are a closely guarded secret, although Obama admitted on CBS's "The Early Show" last week that he's "terrible" -- but gets to spends six hours outside, shoot the breeze with friends and "almost feel normal. ... There are a whole bunch of Secret Service guys, but they're sort of in the woods."
