While domestic crises simmer and international conflicts flare, President Obama can be counted on to pitch and putt.
The duffer in chief has played 81 rounds of golf and had attended 75 political fund-raisers in the 628 days since his 2012 re-election, a Post analysis of his schedule found.
The president is on pace to double the 104 days he spent on the links during his first term.
While many criticize the president for making birdies instead of policy, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg has defended the habit.
“They criticize him for going and playing golf with people who he’s got to deal with,” Bloomberg said. “He should be doing that every weekend. You always can work better with somebody that you have a chance to build a social relationship with.”
