President Barack Obama‘s A-list golf games continue.

Obama, in the middle of his annual summer vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, played a Saturday round at the Farm Neck Golf Club with former President Bill Clinton, civil rights leader Vernon Jordan and Ambassador Ron Kirk.

The game (a celebration for Jordan’s 80th birthday) appeared to be going well for all involved: At one particular hole, first Jordan, then Obama, 54, and finally Clinton, 68, all successfully putted.

(This in contrast to Obama’s game earlier this month with Larry David, which involved a tricky sand trap.)

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton continued her campaign efforts in Iowa, following a somewhat zinger-filled appearance at Friday’s Wing Ding Dinner.

Hillary, 67, attended the Iowa State Fair on Saturday, enjoying a few bites of pork chop on a stick, and took at least 42 photos with attendees – including selfies.

She left the fair at about 12:30 p.m., lemonade and pork chop in hand.
