Obama in Martha's Vineyard golf trifecta

President Barack Obama has once again hit the golf trifecta as he vacations on Martha's Vineyard.

He spent more than two hours at Mink Meadows Golf Club on Tuesday, a semi-private, nine-hole club on the island's north shore. It was Obama's fourth outing since he arrived last week for a 10-day vacation. His golf partners included his friend Eric Whitaker and White House chef Sam Kass.

Obama has now played all three island courses _ just as he did during family vacations in his first two years as president.

Earlier Tuesday, Obama received updates on preparations for Hurricane Irene and the upheaval in Libya. He also conferred with an economic adviser on the jobs and deficit plan the White House says he will unveil after Labor Day.
