MARTHA'S VINEYARD, Mass. -- The First Duffer hit the links Monday on the first full day of his vacation, after a morning workout and a game of tennis with his wife at the 28-acre waterfront estate he has rented for the week.
The presidential foursome on the golf course includes President Obama,
South Carolina Rep. James E. Clyburn (D), his friend Eric Whitaker, UBS Investment Bank president Robert Wolf and White House aide Marvin Nicholson.
White House officials declined to say which of the island's golf courses was hosting the president.
"You know, he's on vacation. So everything is a little bit loose," spokesman Bill Burton said at the elementary school gymnasium that is serving as the Island Briefing Room. "You know, you wake up, you have some breakfast, you work out, and then you decide, 'Oh, what I feel like doing today?' He's doing that just like anybody else."
