President Obama is getting in a whole lot of golf with NBA stars during his vacation to Martha’s Vineyard this week. After spending Wednesday getting a round in with former NBA all-stars Ray Allen and Alonzo Mourning on the links of Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs, Mass., Obama’s spending Friday afternoon getting his golf on with 2015 NBA MVP Steph Curry, his dad Dell Curry and Allen again, according to White House sources.
Notably missing from the group is Steph’s daughter Riley, who was probably left off because she’s too good.
Her dad, meanwhile, has had quite the week. He spent most of it working out with Team USA in Las Vegas, where he showed off his trademark skills ahead of next year’s Rio Olympics. Here he is hitting all kinds of buckets on Thursday while performing some offense drills.
If Curry brings those same skills to the golf course, though, Obama’s in trouble.
Or maybe not. Obama’s already gotten in four rounds of golf since last Friday. Over the weekend, he hit the links with Larry David, star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and creative mind behind “Seinfeld.”

Obama will likely squeeze in a few more rounds, as well, before returning to Washington on Aug. 23.
“His schedule has been especially demanding in the last several weeks,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said (via The Hill) last Friday. “I think he would also be quick to tell you that the last several weeks have been especially rewarding for him.”
