Obama Spends Christmas Eve Golfing in Hawaii

It may have been a week later than he had hoped, but US President Barack Obama finally hit the links in Hawaii Saturday on his first full day of vacation.

Obama touched down in the Aloha State Friday night after signing a bill in Washington extending the payroll tax cut for two months.

The president had delayed his departure for Hawaii amid the tax cut stalemate, with his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha leaving as planned on Dec. 17.

On Saturday morning, the couple skipped their usual morning workout, with the president heading off for an afternoon of golf and the first lady spreading some Christmas cheer, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.

Obama was joined at the Klipper course at the Marine Base Hawaii in Kaneohe by old friends and Hawaii locals Mike Ramos, Greg Orme and Bobby Titcomb, along with Chicago friend Eric Whitaker, and White House staffers Sam Kass and Marvin Nicholson.

The president went golfing on the first day of his Christmas vacation in Hawaii last year as well.
