    Lllllllet's get rrrready to doubbbblllleee (bogey).

    The much-anticipated Obama-Boehner golf outing's foursome has been finalized.

    According to House Speaker John Boehner's Twitter account, he and GOP Gov. John Kasich of Ohio will take on President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.  Boehner ended his tweet with the hashtag #nomulligans.

    The outing is scheduled for June 18, but the course hasn't been disclosed. It is, however, expected to be in the D.C. area.

    Obama and Boehner are both passionate about golf. Obama has been criticized for spending many a weekend on the course during his presidency. Meanwhile, Boehner is a member at the Burning Tree Club in Bethesda, an exclusive course that does not allow female members.

    Boehner was ranked tied at No. 43 among Washington's top golfers by Golf Digest. Obama came in in a tie at No. 108. Biden was ranked No. 29.

    The outing was the idea of former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, who thought it might be a good way for the two to work out their parties' differences.
