Obama ends vacation golfing with HBO’s Larry David

President Barack Obama hit the links Saturday with comedian Larry David, the star of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, as his weeklong vacation in Martha's Vineyard comes to a close.
The president rounded out his foursome with former U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk and businessman Glenn Hutchins, a part owner of the Boston Celtics basketball team.
Obama has spent much of his vacation golfing, including a five-hour round to kick off his stay, in which David, designer Kenneth Cole, filmmaker Peter Farrelly, and restaurateur Patrick Lyons made up the foursome in front of the president, the Boston Globe reports.
Obama and the Seinfeld co-creator also crossed paths on Wednesday, at a sunset cocktail party thrown in the president's honor by cable TV mogul Brian Roberts. David discussed his new movie, set in Martha's Vineyard, The New York Times reports. Attorney General Eric Holder, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett were also in attendance.
The president wraps up his vacation Sunday. He has made few public statements during his stay, although he did condemn the bloody street battles in Egypt.
