Tennessee Senator Bob Corker started his week on the golf course, playing a round with President Obama at Andrews Air Force Base.

They were joined by two other senators – a Democrat and a Republican.

Corker has been one of several GOP senators courted by the White House in recent weeks as potential deal-makers on issues ranging from deficit cutting to immigration.

A statement released by Corker’s office says with major fiscal and foreign relations issues facing the country, “anytime you can get the president’s ear for a few hours, I think that’s a good thing.”
