"](CNN) - House Republican Leader John Boehner, a longtime golfer, will tee off with Tiger Woods and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo at tomorrow's Pro-Am charity golf tournament at the A T&T National.
The Earl Woods Memorial Pro-Am tournament at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation and is named after Tiger Wood’s late father. Thomas Dundon, the President and CEO of Drive Financial and Santander Consumer USA will be the fourth player, according to Boehner’s spokesman.
Boehner's handicap is seven and a half.
"He's always been a big fan and a big player," Boehner's communications Director Kevin Smith told CNN, but noted that he's had some back problems over the last year. Boehner occasionally combines golfing and fundraising during Congressional breaks, but tomorrow's outing will support local DC youth organizations.
But the GOP leader isn't the only member of Congress spending some time on the course during the Congressional recess. House Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn played in an earlier Pro Am tournament ahead of the AT&T National on Monday, according to his spokeswoman Kristie Greco.
Although Woods is scheduled to play with the House Republican leader, he's kept his political leanings close to the vest.
Woods visited Washington in March 2007 to announce the AT&T National would be played in the area and visited with bipartisan Congressional leaders including Boehner and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But at a photo op with Speaker Pelosi, Boehner and some other Congressional golfers, Woods was careful to dodge a question about whether he had any plans to get involved in politics.
Late last year Woods hailed the election of President Obama, calling it "absolutely incredible."
"He represents America. He's multiracial. I was hoping it would happen in my lifetime," Woods told CNBC in November. "My father was hoping it would happen in his lifetime, but he didn't get to see it. I'm lucky enough to have seen a person of color in the White House."
Woods also met Obama in the Oval office last April when he was in town promoting the charity event.
