DID JIM FURYK ROLL some putts across the presidential seal? Did Boo Weekley tell the president any colorful jokes? Did Phil Mickelson slap one of his patented flop shots from behind the president’s desk?

U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Paul Azinger, assistant captain Raymond Floyd and seven Ryder Cup team members stopped by the White House on Monday for a photo op with President George W. Bush. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, an avid golfer, was also on hand.
The team presented President Bush with a personalized Ryder Cup golf bag, a Sunday red golf shirt and sweater vest worn by the team and a Ryder Cup money clip.
That’s cool. Now why I didn’t think about inviting them to my office?
