Emily Kay does a nice job examiningthe an interesting and maybe revealing Presidential electoral trend. WIth Barack Obama winning reelection Tuesday and becoming the ninth consecutive golfer since 1980 to take up residence in the White House,  there seems to be a fairly substantial link between 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and golf.

•    1980: Ronald Reagan (golfer) defeats Jimmy Carter (non-golfer)
•    1984: Ronald Reagan defeats Walter Mondale (non-golfer)
•    1988: George H.W. Bush (golfer) defeats Michael Dukakis (non-golfer)
•    1992: Bill Clinton (golfer) defeats George H.W. Bush
•    1996: Bill Clinton defeats Bob Dole (non-golfer)
•    2000: George W. Bush (golfer) defeats Al Gore (non-golfer)
•    2004: George W. Bush defeats John Kerry (non-golfer)
•    2008: Barack Obama (golfer) defeats John McCain (non-golfer)
•    2012: Barack Obama defeats Mitt Romney (the anti-golfer)
