“Ooooh”: Obama Misses Putt On Vacation (PHOTO)


President Barack Obama’s vacation was not off to a spectacular start Sunday.

Joining his pals Marvin Nicholson, Robert Wolf and Sam Kass on Martha’s Vineyard, the golf aficionado missed a series of putts at the Farm Neck Golf Club. Per a White House pool report:

The pool saw Obama, wearing white shirt and khaki shorts, approach his ball and chip it up on the green, overshooting by about 15 feet. His first put was a miss, which Obama reacted to by leaning back and kicking his knee up, as if trying to coax the ball into breaking right. He let out a little, “Ooooh,” as it happned. Do see photos. Next one missed, too. Last one he just dragged in the hole. Pool could see what looked like a little light banter and ribbing among the group, but could not hear.
