For the third weekend in a row, President Obama is hitting the links. CBS's Mark Knoller reports on Twitter:
This weekend the Masters is being held in Augusta, Georgia, where Obama's golf buddy, Tiger Woods, has once again found himself at the center of attention.
Via the pool report:
On a cloudy but quite nice day, POTUS is hitting the links.
At 12:11 pm, he left from the North Portico of the White House. Your pooler only caught the slightest glimpse, but it looked like POTUS was wearing a windbreaker.
Pennsylvania Ave was shut down, with yellow tape holding back scores of onlookers in Lafayette Park.
Some of those onlookers smiled and took photos. Others were protesters, shouting something your pooler couldn't decipher (but thanks to the long lens of a pool photographer, it was possible to make out an anti-drone banner that depicted a drone striking a little family).
After an uneventful motorcade ride, we arrived at Andrews AFB around 12:40pm. As POTUS headed toward the golf course, pool split off and is holding in the food court at the Base Exchange.
Per a White House aide, here's the list of those playing golf with POTUS (all of them WH aides):

Funny what the game of golf can drive a man to do—and no, I'm not talking about Tiger Woods. Rather, when I learned of a package deal involving unlimited golf at the Phoenician hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, I took advantage of it faster than a Masters champion takes advantage of a cocktail waitress. (Okay, that time I was referring to Tiger.)
The whole notion of 'role models,' especially in the ranks of professional athletes, is naïve.3:49 PM, Feb 22, 2010 • By PHILIP TERZIAN
I don't know whether it's age or climate change, but the Tiger Woods Crisis has left me in a mystified state. I say this as a non-golfer who follows the pop cultural news with some fidelity. But both Woods' televised statement of apology -- for which the networks interrupted their scheduled programming last Friday -- and the near-universal consensus that he wasn't sufficiently contrite, leave me in what appears to be a minority of one.
