Golf Digest just unveiled its ranking of the Top 150 Golfers in Washington, D.C.The survey included business people, political staffers, and elected officials, but as you might expect, lobbyists dominate the links.

The best overall golfer is Tony Russo, T-Mobile’s vice president of federal legislative affairs, who has a remarkable USGA handicap of plus-2.3.

(Very few amateurs have a score above zero. Tiger Woods is +8.)

For our purposes, we focused on the public servants who serve in our nation’s Capitol building. After all, you’re paying their greens fees….
