WASHINGTON -

The White House says President Barack Obama played golf Monday with three senators.
    
Democrat Mark Udall of Colorado and Republicans Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and Bob Corker of Tennessee joined Obama for a round at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. That's where Obama frequently plays golf on weekends with aides and friends.
    
The round comes as the White House and Democrats are working to secure support for an immigration overhaul - especially from Republicans. They're hoping that a strong bipartisan showing in the Senate will strengthen the bill's prospects for passing the Republican-controlled House.
    
Obama has also reached out to lawmakers from both parties in hopes of laying the ground for compromise on fiscal issues.
