    ...As a conservative, I hope other conservatives join me in complaining about Trump’s golf costs. And I make the same complaint as an avid golfer. The problem isn’t that Trump likes golf, or that he finds at least some time to play it. Rogan is right that presidents need relief from the stresses of the job, and golf is a salutary diversion. And the problem isn’t that presidential golf costs more than golf by anybody else, because of course security and other considerations make it so by necessity. snip The president is not a potentate. The presidency does not carry...

    Despite his thrilling Masters victory last month, Tiger Woods finished his second round at this week's PGA Championship on the wrong side of the cut line. At 5 over par at Bethpage Black on Long Island, it became clear this wasn't going to be a Masters repeat. The cut was projected to be 4 over, The Associated Press reporter, though there was a chance it could move up to 3 over. By the way, Brooks Koepka finished up the round with a huge lead at the PGA Championship and another entry in the major championship record book.
  • Trump’s prized Doral resort is in steep decline, according to company documents

    Late last year, in a Miami conference room, a consultant for President Trump’s company said business at his prized 643-room Doral resort was in sharp decline. At Doral, which Trump has listed in federal disclosures as his biggest moneymaker hotel, room rates, banquets, golf and overall revenue were all down since 2015. In two years, the resort’s net operating income — a key figure, representing the amount left over after expenses are paid — had fallen by 69 percent. Even in a vigorous economy, the property was missing the Trump Organization’s internal business targets; for instance, the club expected to...

    WASHINGTON - Tiger Woods is scheduled to meet Monday with President Donald Trump at the White House to be honored for his success at the Masters, according to reports. Golf star Woods won his 15th major victory and fifth Masters on April 14 in what’s been called “one of the greatest career revivals in the history of sports,” The Wall Street Journal reported. Trump tweeted April 15 that he’d spoken with Woods and planned to honor him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. That presentation is expected to take place later in the year, ESPN reported.

    Professional golfer Lexi Thompson announced that she would be taking “a break from social media” after receiving a slew of “hurtful” comments following a round of golf with President Trump. The 24-year-old LPGA star shared a selfie on Instagram Sunday with a message that she would be stepping away from all her social media platforms for the time being after becoming “too involved with it.” “Hey everybody, just want to say I will be taking a break from social media. If I post it will be from my management team for me,” her farewell post read.

  • Tiger Woods Is Back. Told You So

    From 1997 to 2008, Tiger Woods dominated the world of golf, winning an extraordinarily high percentage of the tournaments he entered. Woods' illustrious golf career included wins in 14 majors, just four short of tying Jack Nicklaus' all-time record. Then came the revelation and scandal about Woods' double life. Publicly, he was a devoted husband and father; privately, he was a serial cheater. He suffered a series of injuries, resulting in four back operations since 2008, and an embarrassing arrest -- with an accompanying mugshot -- for driving while under influence of the prescription drugs found in his car. Many...

    A meteorologist in Atlanta said she received death threats from viewers for interrupting the Masters tournament that featured the historic and improbable win by Tiger Woods. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that CBS 46's Ella Dorsey took to Twitter to defend herself and the broadcast that only took up half the screen during the tournament. “To everyone sending me death threats right now: you wouldn’t be saying a damn thing if a tornado was ravaging your home this afternoon. Lives are more important than 5 minutes of golf. I will continue to repeat that if and when we cut into programming...

    Tiger Woods has won The Masters tournament in an astonishing comeback after 14 years without a green jacket. Woods, 43, was tied for second going into the final round on Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, but pulled into the lead on the back nine and won as his mother and girlfriend looked on. It is the first time Woods has won a major when he did not have a lead or co-lead after 54 holes, and his first win at The Masters since 2005. Woods caught up with tournament leader Francesco Molinari on the 12th hole, when...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Here he comes. Brace yourself, Augusta. Brace yourself, golf world. Tiger Woods, 14 years removed from his last Masters victory, is in prime position entering the weekend to seize his fifth green jacket. Woods, who last won the Masters in 2005, stormed up the Augusta National manually operated leaderboards with a 4-under 68 in Friday’s second round and stood at 6-under for the tournament. That was one shot out of the lead shared by Jason Day, Francesco Molinari, Brooks Koepka, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen. Woods in contention at the Masters again. Just the way it always...

    Not a Tick-Tock All day long, even before the Mueller news broke, Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge has really been leaning-forward, giving insight into the pending Inspector General report by OIG Michael Horowitz. Herridge is one of those reporters who is careful not to get out in front of her skis. Ms. Herridge is not a book-selling member of the tick-tock community of pundits. We noted earlier how the specific emphasis of Ms. Herridge seemed to indicate the Horowitz report was closer to the surface of completion than previously thought. Immediately after the Mueller news broke (around 5pm EST), Herridge...

But on Friday, Kuchar issued a statement saying he'll pay the rest of the $50,000 that caddie David Ortiz requested.

    Just when you thought the weather at this year's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am [2019] couldn't get any worse, it got worse. A lot worse, actually. Wind and rain on Saturday turned to hail and ice on Sunday on the Monterey Peninsula, and the final round of the tournament was suspended at 1:53 p.m. ET on Sunday. This followed an hour-long delay to start the day for more inclement weather. The photos and videos that emerged from the event were pretty wild, too. It's one thing to get hail. It's another to get it at a PGA Tour event. And it's...

    Phil Mickelson claimed a thrilling play-off win over Tiger Woods in their controversial winner-takes-all $9million match at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas on Friday night. The victory came after 22 holes of finely balanced play between two of golf's greatest players and organisers even had to call on artificial lighting to ensure the game reached a conclusion in bitter cold conditions. Both players were miked up for the entire round, giving fans a rare insight into discussions between themselves and their caddies, but it was the unmistakable tones of Samuel L. Jackson introducing them that was the first sign of...

    The two golf greats will meet Friday afternoon, with the broadcast starting at 2 p.m. EST. It is being shown on DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse and other cable and satellite outlets for $19.95. It can also be streamed on Turner’s B/R Live. The broadcast will feature both golfers mic'd up as well as microphones placed on their caddies (Joe LaCava for Woods and Tim Mickelson for his older brother). With the showdown on pay-per-view, there will be no commercial breaks and plenty of opportunities to hear both golfers try to one-up each other with (gentlemanly) trash talk and verbal jabs.

    Can you spare a couple of ultra-rich golfers twenty bucks? Well, it’s actually just $19.99 for the pay per view and neither Tiger Woods nor Phil Mickelson will get that sum directly; the cable companies and the agents and the lawyers will get paid first, of course. It’s officially dubbed “The Match” – actually it’s “Capitol One’s The Match” because why not make it sound as much like a college football bowl game as possible? Mostly, though, it is a confusing event, something that sounded great in theory, still could be fun, but is more likely being marketed into a...
