VIDEO: President Obama chips in for birdie on 18th hole in Hawaii


President Obama was the Chipper-in-Chief on the golf course on Monday.

Obama played golf on the third day of an expected two-week Hawaii vacation with his family, enjoying a round at Mid Pacific Country Club in Lanikai.

On the 18th hole, Obama had just missed the green with his approach. After reading the green, the left-hander put a perfect stroke on the ball, chipping it in from 40 feet away for a closing birdie. The crowd of onlookers went wild as Obama pointed to them and the assembled media to confirm that, yes, they were all witnesses to a spectacular shot. He doffed his cap in appreciation of the applause.

Obama was playing with childhood friends Greg Orme and Bobby Titcomb, as well as regular golf buddy Darrell Harrington.

In the New Year, Obama will return to Washington to start the final year of his presidency.
