OBAMA WRAPS UP FIRST GOLF GAME AS PRESIDENT INCLUDING WOMAN IN FOURSOME

As dusk was falling, President Obama’s motorcade pulled up to the South portico of the White House at 6:35 p.m. eastern time. The sun was setting over the club house at the Army’s Fort Belvoir golf course when the motorcade departed at 6:06 p.m.

The golf game was notable in that the presidential foursome included, for the first time a female, Melody Barnes, the president’s chief domestic policy advisor. The foursome: Obama, Barnes, Obama pal Eric Whitaker, the physician who is an executive vice president at the University of Chicago Medical Center and Marvin Nicholson, the White House trip director.

At the White House, Barnes was observed taking her clubs out of an SUV and walking into the White House along the colonnade. She did not stop to comment on the game.

Katherine J. Hogan called a full lid at 6:45 p.m.
