Obama in Martha’s Vineyard golf trifecta

VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. (AP) ? President Barack Obama has once again hit the golf trifecta as he vacations on Martha’s Vineyard.

He arrived at Mink Meadows Golf Club on Tuesday afternoon for his fourth outing since arriving on the island Thursday evening. Mink Meadows is a nine-hole semi-private club on Martha’s Vineyard’s north shore. Obama has now played all three island courses ? just as he did during family vacations in his first two years as president.

Earlier, at his rented farm compound, Obama got an update on preparations for Hurricane Irene, conferred with his deputy national security adviser on the upheaval in Libya and spoke to a top economic adviser about the jobs and deficit plan he expects to unveil after Labor Day.
