EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) -- As soon as the skies turned blue and the sun illuminated Martha's Vineyard, the vacationing President Barack Obama hit the links again.
The White House says the president is playing a round of golf with World Bank President Jim Kim, Comcast chief executive Brian Roberts and former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk.
The game at the Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown is the third round of golf for Obama since he arrived Saturday on this picturesque Massachusetts island. It's his second match at the Vineyard club.
Heavy rain Tuesday scuttled any golf plans Obama may have had. He played basketball instead.
Before leaving his rented vacation home on Wednesday, the White House said Obama was briefed by national security adviser Susan Rice on the violence unfolding in Egypt.
