President Biden hit the links for the first golf game of his presidency Saturday in an unannounced visit that seemed to take local hackers by surprise.

Startled members of the Wilmington Country Club, 10 minutes away from Biden’s Delaware home, were seen whipping out their cell phones to record the president’s arrival at the 36-hole facility.

He teed off with advisor Steve Ricchetti and Ron Olivere, the White House said. Olivere is the father of Hallie Biden, the widow of Biden’s late son Beau — and former lover of Hunter Biden, his scandal-scarred younger son.

Biden has had the game on his mind in recent days: the trip came one day after his cringe-worthy reference to Masters golf champion Hideki Matsuyama as a “Japanese boy” in a Rose Garden press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.

Once ranked as one of golf-mad Washington’s top politico players by Golf Digest, Biden took a break from the links during last year’s presidential campaign. His first public venture onto the course comes 87 days after he took the oath of office.

It will take many more outings to catch up to his predecessors’ prodigious appetites for the game. President Trump played at least 150 rounds during his presidency at the golf courses he owns in Virginia, Florida, and New Jersey. President Obama teed off more than 300 times during his two terms in office.
