OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama is spending his first full day of vacation on the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard playing golf.
Obama arrived at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs on Saturday afternoon. The White House says he is playing with actor-comedian Larry David, businessman and Obama campaign fundraiser Robert Wolf and Cyrus Walker, a cousin of top Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Reporters traveling with Obama were given a rare glimpse of the president as he leaned back on one leg as his ball approached the first hole. It did not go in.
Obama left Washington on Friday with the first lady and daughter Sasha for a 17-day island retreat.
He is scheduled to return to the White House on Aug. 23.
