President Obama has taken heat from the right for his occasional golfing habit, but Monday he'll have some Republican company when he hits the links: His three guests include Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., and Mark Udall, D-Colo.
Mr. Obama, who according to CBS News' Mark Knoller has played 121 rounds of golf during his presidency, hasn't often had congressional company. This is the fourth time he has invited a member of Congress to be part of his golf foursome. Twice he has invited Rep. Jim Clyburn, R-S.C., and once he's invited House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.
Today's golf game marks the most recent example of Mr. Obama's continued outreach to Republican lawmakers as he attempts to push forth his second term agenda. Last month, he hosted a bipartisan dinner with the Senate's women members, and he's hosted two similar dinners for Republican senators.
In a statement, Corker called the opportunity to spend time with the president a "good thing."
"With the major fiscal issues our country is facing, not to mention foreign relations issues around the world, anytime you can get the president's ear for a few hours, I think that's a good thing."
Chambliss, meanwhile, hit a hole-in-one on the 11th hole, CBS News confirmed.
