Is it time for President Barack Obama to take a mulligan? Golf Digest ranks him at No. 108 in a list of 150 Washington power brokers who play golf. Obama has a handicap of 17, the publication estimates.

Heading the list is Tony Russo, T-Mobile vice president of federal legislative affairs, with a handicap of negative 2.3. The top member of Congress is Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., at No. 11 with a handicap of 2. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., is close on his heels at No. 12 with a 2.1 handicap.

Vice President Joe Biden ranks 29th with a 6.3 handicap. And House Speaker John Boehner comes in tied for 43rd with a 7.9 handicap.
