Obama plays 101st round as president

President Obama waited for the temperature to cool just a bit before heading to the golf course on Sunday.

Obama is golfing at the Fort Belvoir course, according to a White House pool report. The president is golfing with White House chef Sam Kass, staffer Mike Brush and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson, a frequent golf partner of Obama’s.

The temperature at the course is a steamy 89 degrees but a slight breeze makes it feel a little cooler, according to the Weather Channel. Washington is in the midst of a heat wave, with temperatures hitting 100 degrees on Thursday.

This will be the president’s 101st round of golf since entering office according to a count kept by CBS News’s Mark Knoller. He was last on the course on Father’s Day.

Critics of the president frequently target his golf game, something President George W. Bush also heard during his years at the White House.

Obama's schedule has been light this weekend ahead of what could be a historic week. 

The Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling on the president's healthcare law, while Attorney General Eric Holder faces a contempt vote in the House.
