U.S. President Barack Obama hopeful of some rest and relaxation after a bruising year in politics, wasted little time getting his golf game in gear on the third day of a two-week end-of-year family vacation to his home state of Hawaii on Monday (December 23).

Obama took on his second round of golf since arriving in Hawaii late on Friday (December 20), playing with his friend at Mid Pacific Country Club in Lanikai.

There was no immediate word on the president's golf score. Obama is an avid golfer who plays off a respectable handicap of 16 or 17, and is estimated to have logged more than 150 rounds since being elected president.

It's the sixth year in a row the Obamas have made a holiday trip to the state, where they stay at a rented home on Oahu, Hawaii's most populous island, before returning to the nation's capital on January 5.
