(USA Today) -- U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss hit a hole-in-one while playing a round of golf with President Barack Obama on Monday.

Obama was playing with the Georgia Republican and his fellow senators, Mark Udall, D-CO, and Bob Corker, R-T at Andrews Air Force Base.

Jay Carney, the president's press secretary, said the bipartisan round was "in keeping with [the president's] engagement with lawmakers of both parties - in particular Republican senators - to see if he can find some common ground on the challenges that confront us."

Chambliss is part of the bipartisan Gang of Six, that senatorial group you've probably heard about but can't precisely define.

In Golf Digest's 2011 rankings of golfing Washingtonians, the 69-year-old Chambliss ranked No. 2 among senators with a 7.4 handicap index. (Obama is thought to have an index of 17.)

Some might say the hole-in-one was the best part of the day. Others could believe it was golfing with the president. Me, I think hitting the links on a Monday afternoon while everybody else was at work is the real achievement.
