SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- President Barack Obama hit the links in San Diego Monday morning during a quick stop for a fundraiser in La Jolla.

He was spotted at the Torrey Pines Golf Course prior to his afternoon departure at MCAS Miramar aboard Air Force One.

"He came up and everything got quiet," said Christian Gregg, who was at the golf course when the president arrived. "A lot of people took out their cameras. And he just walked up and said hi and started putting."

The trip is likely to be Barack Obama's final one to San Diego as commander-in-chief.

The president's next stop is Los Angeles, where he will be taping a Jimmy Kimmel Live! segment and attending a pair of fundraisers.
