OAK BLUFFS -- While President Obama isn't a scratch golfer by any means, he apparently doesn't ask for as many mulligans (do-overs in golf lingo) as Bill Clinton famously did.
He was spotted looking for his ball after an errant tee shot as he played today in a foursome with friends UBS Investment Bank President Robert Wolf and Chicago physician Eric Whitaker and White House aide Marvin Nicholson.
Curious spectators lined the perimeter of the course, some on their bicycles, and the route from the golf club to Blue Heron Farm, where the Obamas are staying.
Bridgette Allen, 49, who has a home in East Chop, couldn't contain her glee when she spied Obama on the course.
"President Obama!" she shouted as Obama was about to work his way out of a sand trap early into his game.
He halted, glanced her way through the trees, and slightly shook his hips.
"I am thrilled. What more could I ask for?" Allen, who volunteered for Obama's campaign, said afterward. "I got a little booty shake."
