Obama and the former president are golfing together at Farm Neck Golf Club on Martha’s Vineyard. Reporters covering Obama’s two-week vacation were given a peek at the leaders as they teed off on the first hole.
Obama and Clinton have been occasional golf partners since Obama became president.
The two were expected to cross paths again in the evening when both attend an 80th birthday party for Vernon Jordan. The civil rights leader joined Obama and Clinton for the golf round, as did former Ambassador Ron Kirk.
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton is also to attend Jordan’s party.
