President Barack Obama heads back to Washington D.C. today after vacationing in South Florida over the weekend.

Tiger Woods joined the president at the Floridian Yacht and Golf Club, Sunday on the state's Treasure Coast.

The White House says the group also included Jim Crane, the Houston businessman who owns the resort and baseball's Houston Astros, and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk.

Others spotted with Mr. Obama over the weekend were Eric Whitaker, a longtime friend from Chicago; Tony Chase, a Houston lawyer and fellow Harvard Law alum who has raised campaign money for Obama; and Milton Carroll, another Houston businessman who is chairman of CenterPoint Energy, and has also given money to Obama's campaigns.

On Saturday, Obama got some instruction and played a few holes with Butch Harmon, Woods' former swing coach.

Obama was spending the long President's Day weekend at the Floridian and is expected to return to Washington sometime today. First lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha are on an annual ski vacation in Colorado.
