President Obama began the new year Wednesday by allowing pool photographers and others to snap new pictures of him on the golf course. About two dozen onlookers, including a local television news crew and other reporters, watched at the Mid Pacific Country Club in Hawaii as Obama hit a fairway shot to within about 22 feet of the hole. Portions of the course are visible from a public street, enabling access to the press pool and some nearby residents. After holing out, Obama smiled, waved to the crowd, and said, "happy new year!" When someone shouted, "we love you!"
