Today's game is the first on his 10-day Martha's Vineyard vacation at the semi-private Farm Neck course. Obama golfed twice at the Vineyard Golf Club and late yesterday at the nine-hole Mink Meadows Golf Club in Vineyard Haven.

Prodigal sun returns to Martha’s Vineyard, just in time for Obama

From CNN White House Correspondent Dan Lothian
Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts (CNN) - After days of heavy rains and high winds, sunshine finally returned to Martha’s Vineyard Thursday.
The ground was still a bit soggy, but for the vacationing President it was perfect weather to hit the links.
Obama tee’d off at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluff’s with close friends Eric Whitaker, Cyrus Walker, and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson.
At one point during the round, after Nicholson appeared to make a good putt, he and the President engaged in a playful fist pump.
What do you mean, “without looking gay”?
Marvin Nicholson? Wasn’t that the name of John Kerry’s butler?
obama sticks us with a self fulfilling prophecy of disaster. Then becomes one himself.....the day he resigns, is impeached, losses re-election or is removed from office, will be a great day for this nation.
That conference call that he had really over taxed him. He will probably have to spend a couple of more days on vacation to recover.
That was my first thought! What a pose.
Maybe it’s just me, but when I was growing up family vacations were for being with family! I don’t remember my dad ever once going off during a family vacation and doing something on his own without his kids, mom either. It just didn’t happen.
soggy greens ,too,slows the ball down (of course)
the only pair of shoes he owns that get a real work-out
