SHARE Obama plays final round before Fla. vacation ends

KEY LARGO, Fla. — President Barack Obama is squeezing in another round of golf before his family vacation in southern Florida comes to an end.

The White House says Obama is playing golf Sunday on one of the courses at the exclusive Ocean Reef Club, where the family is staying.

The foursome includes sportscaster and former NFL wide receiver Ahmad Rashad, former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and Cyrus Walker, a cousin of senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. Obama teed off with the same group on Saturday.

Obama, his wife, Michelle, and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, were returning to the White House on Sunday evening.

The president is scheduled to host Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk at the White House on Wednesday.

The Obama family arrived in Florida on Friday.
