President Obama is on track to pass his golfing record from 2011 — 34 rounds for the year — said one conservative blogger who covers all things White House.

Keith Koffler of White House Dossier said Mr. Obama hit 18 rounds at the year’s halfway mark, June 30.

“After playing nine weeks in a row, Obama was forced to break his streak the last weekend in June when his trip to Africa edged inconveniently into the weekend,” Mr. Koffler wrote.

But he’s likely to pick up where he left off, and if he continues to play every weekend — he usually plays at Andrews Air Force Base or at Fort Belvoir — will likely surpass his previously set golfing record, the blog reported.


Mr. Obama’s history of golfing has had its ups and downs.

His high for play is 34 rounds. But he only managed 19 rounds in 2012, White House Dossier reported. Comparatively, he played 28 rounds in 2009, followed by 30 in 2010.
