United States Senate(WASHINGTON) — If President Obama wanted to hit up Sen. Saxby Chambliss for a political favor, Monday was the day to do it.

The president was playing golf with the Georgia Republican and GOP Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee on one of the courses at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland when Chambliss achieved what all golfers dream of on the 11th hole — a hole-in-one.

Naturally, that was the time for Obama to swoop in and ask the lawmaker for just about anything.  But since Monday’s round was considered a friendly game by all concerned, most of the talk apparently did not focus on pressing issues facing Washington.

As it happened, the Republican pairing defeated the president and his partner, Democratic Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado.

Obama, who is ranked 108th in Golf Digest’s survey of “Washington’s Top 150 Golfers,” played with some real ringers since Udall is 11th on the list, Corker is 12th, and Chambliss is 37th.
