There’s light rain in the Washington area, but President Obama and his intrepid band of young regulars are headed out to the links, working to better their handicaps at the Andrews Air Force Base course.
Obama, who hits the golf course for the fourth time in as many weeks, is out with two junior White House staffers, Ben Finkenbinder and Marvin Nicholson, as well as David Katz of the Energy Department.
This is Obama’s 65th time golfing as president and his seventh time this year.
The president appears on pace to possibly eclipse his previous annual totals. He’s about a quarter of the way to a new record, and the Summertime Obama Golfing Season has not even begun.
Obama played 30 rounds in 2010 and 28 rounds in 2009, according to statistics compiled by CBS News radio reporter and informal White House chronicler Mark Knoller.
