The White House, via the pool reporter, has revealed that the president today didn't win in golf:

A White House official put out the following readout on the president’s golf outing this afternoon at Andrews Air Force Base with Senators Corker, Chambliss and Udall:

This afternoon, the President, who has the highest handicap of the foursome, paired with up Senator Udall, who has the lowest.  Senators Chambliss and Corker, aided by Chambliss's hole-in-one on the 11th, won the match. 

The President enjoyed the chance to spend some time on the golf course with the Senators.  Most of the talk centered on the round of golf and not the latest round of legislative negotiations in Congress.  The President was pleased that the rain held off, despite the damp forecast.
