President Obama hit the golf course Sunday as the Washington region experienced a humid heat wave that pushed the heat index into the triple digits.

Obama left the White House shortly after noon for the links at Andrew Air Force Base. White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson, presidential aide Ben Finkenbinder and campaign photographer David Katz were his playing partners.

The game was cut short by a strong thunderstorm, and Obama returned to the White House shortly after 4 p.m.

On Saturday, when a heat warning was in effect for the D.C. area, Obama shot hoops at Fort McNair's physical fitness center with presidential aide Reggi Love.

A National Weather Service heat advisory was in effect for the region until Sunday evening.

Obama is three weeks away from his vacation with the first family to Florida's Gulf Coast, after which the Obamas will spend time at Martha's Vineyard.
