WASHINGTON - Hey, isn't that ... former president Barack Obama and comedian Bill Murray, hitting the links together at Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Va., on Tuesday?

The "Caddyshack" star and Charleston resident was in Washington for the Sunday-night Mark Twain awards at the Kennedy Center honoring fellow funnyman Dave Letterman, and apparently found time during his visit to reunite with an old golfing buddy. Obama and Murray famously practiced putting in the Oval Office in a video the White House released in December urging people to sign up for health insurance.

The high-profile pair were the talk of the club Tuesday, according to a source.

Obama joined the Arlington club in May and has been spotted there several times, although he has his choice of greens: He's also an honorary member at both Columbia Country Club in Chevy Chase, Md., and Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va.
