Obama Tees Off on Martha's Vineyard
It's the first full day of President Obama's vacation on Martha's Vineyard, and he's already made it to the golf course. Mr. Obama took his first swings this afternoon at Farm Neck Golf Club on the island.
The president reportedly played today with S.C. Democratic Rep. James E. Clyburn, UBS Investment Bank president Robert Wolf and White House aide Marvin Nicholson. He has been rumored to have Tiger Woods as a playing partner later this week, but the White House has denied that is in the works.
Below you can see some video of his swing off the first tee from Plumtv.com, which was able to film from the pro shop. The video also includes a little bit of a tour of the course from the club pro and a peak inside a gift bag the club is going to present to the first family.
Plumtv.com bills itself as "an insider's guide to some of America's most treasured communities," such as the aforementioned Martha's Vineyard as well as Miami Beach, The Hamptons in New York and Colorado ski resorts Aspen, Telluride and Vail.
In addition to today's golf video, the site has several more videos taking a look at the scene of the first family's vacation and talking with locals about what Mr. Obama and his family could do while they are there.
Here are links to some of those videos:
• Views of Blue Heron farm where the Obamas are staying
• Island Captain Buddy Vanderhoop and Henry Louis Gates Jr. (of "beer summit" fame) on fishing
• A look at the sights of the Chilmark community
• Fashion advice for Michelle Obama
• Advice from young basketball players
• An interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
