Following their tee shots, a foursome strides down the lush green fairway of Augusta's first hole to start a round of golf. Similar scenes will be enacted by millions of golfers this year. But what makes this foursome unique is that the man at the left, swinging his driver with the carefree abandon of a man bent on escaping all pressures, occupies the White House. His companions for the day are Clifford Roberts, Billy Joe Patton, Dr. Cary Middlecoff.
