OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama is wrapping up his Martha’s Vineyard vacation by playing golf with comedian Larry David.

The president hit the links Saturday with an unlikely foursome that includes David, former U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk and businessman Glenn Hutchins, a part owner of the Boston Celtics.

Obama has golfed most days during his weeklong getaway, which ends Sunday. Obama spent a couple hours Saturday morning with his wife and daughters on a private beach on the island’s south shore.

The first family is staying in a secluded four-bedroom rental home in Chilmark. The president has kept a low profile during his stay. He spoke out publicly only once, to condemn escalating violence in Egypt.
