Obama, Key hit links on Oahu


HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama hit the golf course in Hawaii with New Zealand Prime Minister John Key on Thursday.

The two leaders teed off on a sunny and breezy morning on the island of Oahu. They played at a course on a military base near Obama’s rented vacation home. Key’s son and Obama’s personal aide completed the foursome.

Obama is an avid golfer, but he rarely expands his playing partners outside a small circle of close friends and advisers.

Among those who received a rare invite to play with the president in the past are former President Bill Clinton and Republican House Speaker John Boehner.

Key became prime minister of New Zealand in 2008.
