Obama hits the links

President Barack Obama took to the golf course on Saturday after returned from delivering the commencement address at West Point.

The president teed off at the Andrews Air Force Base course with three other people, according to a pool report, but only one could be identified: White House trip director Marvin Nicholson.

Golf is a frequent weekend pastime for Obama. The president headed to the course almost immediately after disembarking from Air Force One.

Obama didn't start playing before taking care of some business. He phoned German Chancellor Angela Merkel in flight to discuss the volatile European economy and the upcoming G-20 summit next month.
