Obama hits golf course for 75th time...

Obama Golfs Twice This Weekend – 75th Time as President

With the first lady still on travel, President Obama today went golfing for the second time this weekend, an outing that also puts him at the three quarter century mark for total trips to the golf course as president.

Obama's 75 times golfing since Inauguration Day includes 17 outings just this year. He made it thirteen weekends in a row Saturday with a trip out to the Andrews Air Force Base course.

The president today is at the Fort Belvoir couse, taking along a couple of his usual crew of younger staffers but also White House Chief of Staff William Daley.

Mrs. Obama is headed home today from a weeklong trip to southern Africa – but not in time to keep her husband off the golf course.

Also golfing today is White House trip director Marvin Nicholson and former Obama campaign photographer David Katz.

Obama last weekend golfed with Vice President Biden, House Speaker John Boehner, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R).
