POTOMAC, Md. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is playing golf at a private club in Maryland with ESPN co-host Michael Wilbon.

One of Obama's partners late last month was Tony Kornheiser. Kornheiser is Wilbon's sidekick on the sports show "Pardon the Interruption".

Obama's venue Saturday was TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac, Maryland. The club has a championship course on 220 rolling acres in Montgomery County.

The White House says the other two members of Obama's foursome are White House aide Marvin Nicholson and Glenn Hutchins. Hutchins is a co-founder of the technology investment firm Silver Lake Partners. Obama has played with Wilbon and Hutchins on past golf outings.

When Obama spends weekends in Washington, he typically takes his clubs to military posts in Maryland or Virginia.
