Obama hits golf course

President Barack Obama spent Sunday on the golf course at Fort Belvoir, Va., according to White House pool reports.

The president was playing with regular links partner Marvin Nicholson and two others whose names weren't immediately known.

First lady Michelle Obama is set to visit the Gulf region Monday for the first time since the BP oil spill began. BP began a new containment procedure Saturday that the company's hopes will provide a tighter seal around the well leak, but in the meantime oil is flowing freely into the Gulf once again.

The first lady will visit Panama City, Fla., to get an update on the impact of the Deepwater Horizon spill and to speak to members of the local community.

On Monday, Obama will host President Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic at the White House for a working meeting.
