According to The Hill, Boehner played a pretty good game, being under and making par on many holes. He sunk a 35-foot putt for birdie on the eigth hole, according to CNN
Although Boehner is known as an avid golfer with a reported 7.5 handicap, he tried to lower expectations before he hit the green.
"Well, listen — I can be the Republican leader of the House, and we'll know about the golf course at the end of 18 holes," he told CNN.
The pro-am based the final score on the lowest score of an individual team member on every hole. Boehner's team finished eight under par.
And although Boehner may not have been the most famous face on his team, he still managed to draw a few fans to the Congressional Country Club outside of Washington.
"Oh my gosh, that was awesome," a fan said, The Hill reports, after asking Boehner to sign his shirt.
