At 5:36 p.m., about five hours after President Obama arrived at the
Mid-Pacific Country Club, your pool was led to the 18th hole, where
POTUS and his golfing partners were approaching as the sun set through
thick clouds. The president, wearing a grey golf shirt, dark shorts, a
cap and a white glove on his right hand, took his position on the
fringe about 40 feet from the hole, squatted down for a better view,
then took a few practice swings before chipping the ball in. A cheer
went up when he made the shot, and POTUS raised both arms in triumph,
then turned and pointed in your pool's direction, in a "You guys saw
that, right?" kind of a gesture, although he didn't say a word. He
then walked over to golfing partner Darrell Harrington, and the two
high-fived. Whereupon, your pool was led away to the motorcade, which
is now rolling. Stand by for some photos of this first POTUS sighting
of his Hawaii vacation.
