Obama Wraps Up 3-Day Golf Vacation in Fla.

PALM CITY, Fla. (AP) — On the third day of a Florida golf vacation, President Barack Obama hit the links with more low-key partners.

The White House said Obama played golf Monday with departing U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, the president’s Chicago pal Eric Whitaker and White House aide Marvin Nicholson.

Tiger Woods was part of the president’s foursome on Sunday.

Obama spent Presidents Day weekend up at the Floridian, an exclusive club along Florida’s Treasure Coast. The club’s owner is Jim Crane, a Houston businessman who also owns baseball’s Houston Astros. Crane also has given money to Obama’s political campaigns.

The White House has barred media coverage of the president’s golf holiday but has released the names of his partners.

Obama arrived in Florida late Friday, and was returning to Washington on Monday night.
