The president, a frequent golfer, left the White House shortly before 1 p.m. for a ride to what has become his home course at Andrews Air Force Base.


The weather is beautiful in the Washington D.C. area this weekend, sunny with temperatures in the low 60s.

It's the second round of golf for Obama this Spring, and also the second time this week the White House has put golf on the agenda.

On Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the president thinks women should be allowed membership at Augusta National, the Georgia golf club that is hosting the Masters tournament this week.

"His personal opinion is women should be admitted," Carney said in a press briefing.
