Obama plays 200th round of golf as president

RSS

The First Duffer reached a milestone Sunday, playing his 200th round of golf since taking office, according to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

President Barack Obama teed it up at Fort Belvoir Golf Club, but no details were provided on who rounded out the president's group.

While 200 rounds of golf sounds like a lot, Obama still has a long way to go to catch two other notorious golfing presidents.

According to Don Van Natta Jr.'s book "First Off the Tee," Woodrow Wilson was estimated to have played 1,200 rounds of golf while in office, but it could have been as high as 1,600, twice as many as Augusta National member Dwight Eisenhower.
