    The President loves the game of golf, especially when he can play at his own properties. But during a recent round at his club in Bedminster, N.J., Donald Trump threw out the book of etiquette when he took his golf cart over one of his club's greens. A video posted to Twitter by guests at the club shows the president cruising across the green -- a staunch no-no in golf decorum. POTUS then pulls up to the guests filming and engages them in conversation. When the guests ask him how he's playing, Trump replies: "Well until this hole." Maybe he...

    President Donald Trump has a new golf buddy ... Peyton Manning. The two hit the links together at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia on Sunday -- along with Republican Sen. Bob Corker from Tennessee (same state where Peyton played his college ball). The group reportedly spent roughly 4 and a half hours playing -- no word on who emerged victorious. Manning was in town to receive the Lincoln Medal in D.C. later that night. Seems Trump has filled his QB void after his rift with his ex-BFF Tom Brady.

    Tiger Woods has been arrested on DUI charges in Jupiter, Florida. The golfer was stopped by cops early Monday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was taken in around 3 AM and released from Palm Beach County Jail at 10:50 AM. You'll recall ... when Tiger and then wife Elin Nordegren got into their blowout fight back in 2009, he hit a tree while allegedly driving under the influence of Ambien. He was not charged with DUI at the time. Story developing ...

    ---SNIP-- The weekend's festivities also offer a reminder of the complications surrounding the promise from Trump's lawyers that he would not use the presidency to boost his businesses. Trump has retained ownership of his real estate and branding empire - including the Virginia golf course - despite criticism from Democrats and ethics experts that he stood to personally profit from his public duties. In this case, it's unclear whether Trump's business is getting a cut of the ticket revenue. But the business, and the Trump brand more broadly, certainly stands to gain positive publicity.

    Caitlyn Jenner turned down an invitation to play golf with President Trump over his administration's removal of Obama-era transgender bathroom guidelines, the reality television star says. "When I was at the inauguration I did say 'hi' at a cocktail party, and he wanted me to play golf with him," Jenner told ABC in an interview set to air Friday. "At the time I thought it was a pretty good idea but since Title IX, it's not a good idea. And so I won't be playing golf with him."

    Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said on Tuesday that President Trump's frequent trips to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida bother not only her, but other members of the Republican caucus. "I do wish he would spend more time in Washington, D.C.," Ernst said during a town hall meeting. "That's what we have the White House for." Since he took office, Trump has spent seven out of the last 13 weekends at his self-described "Southern White House" in Palm Beach. The visits have stirred controversy, in part because of the enormous costs associated with such frequent travel. One estimate of the weekend...

The 2nd is that if Trump were not president he could still do the same thing.</p>

  • Massive Alligators At Kiawah Island Golf Course, South Carolina Caught On Video

    Two massive alligators were captured on video Monday strolling along the golf courses on Kiawah Island, South Carolina. A third was photographed sneaking up on golfers during a fund raising tournament Tuesday, though it’s unclear if it was the same animal as the day before. “It was literally a dinosaur,” Carrie Moores, who snapped a picture while taking photos during the tournament, told the Post and Courier Tuesday. “People said it was one of the largest ones they had ever seen. Moores’ photo captured the massive alligator ambling along behind unsuspecting golfers. After snapping the photo, she ran to a...

    President Donald Trump brought Sen. Rand Paul to his Virginia golf course on Sunday to talk health policy with the outspoken critic of the failed plan to repeal and replace so-called Obamacare. The outing to Trump National Golf Club came hours after Trump tweeted that talks on replacing the law have been going on and "will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck." He added that anyone who thinks the effort is dead "does not know the love and strength in R Party!"(continued)

    President Trump brought Republican Sen. Rand Paul to Trump National Golf Club in Virginia on Sunday to play golf with him, a little more than a week after the party's healthcare bill failed. "They're discussing a variety of topics, including healthcare," White House deputy press secretary Stephanie Grisham said. Budget director Mick Mulvaney, a former leading House conservative, also joined the two.
