Bush Starts Father's Day with a Round of Golf with Dad

President Bush has started his Father's Day with an early morning round of golf with his father.

They teed off at a cool, damp course in Kennebunkport, Maine at 6:15 in the morning.

Former President Bush went first and without hesitation drove the ball down the fairway, declaring "No mulligans." After some small talk, the president hit his first ball and then they rode off in a golf cart.

Bush and his family are spending a long weekend at the Bush family compound.

Asked what he planned to do for his father during the day, Bush said: "I'm going to play golf with dad, fish with dad, have lunch with dad, dinner with dad."
