Obama gets in some golf on family trip to Key Largo
KEY LARGO, Fla. — President Obama got out on a Florida golf course on Saturday with two former professional athletes and the cousin of one of his top advisers.
Obama’s foursome included Ahmad Rashad, Cyrus Walker and Alonzo Mourning, the White House said.
Rashad is a sportscaster and former NFL wide receiver.
Mourning is a former center for the NBA’s Miami Heat who has helped raised money for Obama’s campaigns and is helping the administration promote Obama’s new health care law.
Walker is a cousin of Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Obama, his wife, Michelle, and daughters, Malia and Sasha, arrived on Friday afternoon at the Ocean Reef Club for a weekend getaway. The private, by-invitation-only membership club has two championship 18-hole golf courses.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama was looking forward to some warm-weather downtime with his family.
