Subject: Travel Pool Report #8 -- a glimpse of golf
The pool was permitted to watch as President Obama and his partners completed the third hole on the course. The pool arrived on the scene as the foursome (which also included Marvin Nicholson and Joe Paulsen) made their way onto the green.
Obama was wearing a black windbreaker, black pants, black cap and white golf shoes. Prime Minister Cameron donned a navy sweater (or jumper if you prefer) and dark pants.
The current temperature is 52 degrees with a stiff wind blowing.
The two leaders appeared to be having a friendly conversation, but the pool was not within earshot.
Cameron missed a long putt and showed little reaction. Obama squatted down to size up his much shorter putt.
The president's putt looked to be on line as it zipped across the green, but it then rolled around the hole and right back out.
A loud "oh!" was the collective response from Obama and Cameron.
"Did you see that?" Obama yelled to the pool. "Robbed."
And with that, the pool's time on the golf course came to a quick end.
The pool is now holding in the clubhouse as the round continues. One earlier location clarification: The Grove is in the county of Hertfordshire and the town of Watford.
