The Hill Reports:

Barack Obama is playing his 300th round of golf as president.

That unofficial count comes from CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

Shortly after Knoller’s tweet, the president was on the move, departing the town of Chilmark on Martha’s Vineyard, where the first family is vacationing, at 12:38 p.m. for his 300th round of golf while in office.

The motorcade passed a sign that said “Welcome back, First Family,” en route to the Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs, according to reporters traveling with the president.

Many onlookers caught in the traffic jam caused by the motorcade were spotted waving and taking photos.

“The President is golfing at Farm Neck Golf Club with Chris Paul, Cy Walker and Joe Paulsen,” a White House official said.

Obama told the Golf Channel’s David Feherty in a recent interview that his golf handicap is an “honest 13.”

“I think my irons are good, my drive is straight but unimpressive in length, and my putting’s decent, chipping is OK,” Obama said, according to CNN.
“My sand game is terrible.”
