One thing that separates Paul Ryan from John Boehner? Golf. While the former Speaker loves to golf — he got into hot water in some circles for golfing with President Obama in 2011, and left his post in Congress last week laden with golf-related gifts — his replacement is not a fan of the game. Ryan’s spokesman Brendan Buck told Breitbart News that the new Speaker does not golf. He prefers hunting.

The comment came after a reporter asked the White House Press Secretary if President Obama plans to go golfing with the newly-elected Ryan. Given the deflection of the Speaker’s spokesman, we’re guessing not.
