Here's what's on the big travel agenda, beginning Wednesday: "Nine years after he announced his candidacy for president, the President will return to the place where his political career began by traveling to Springfield, Illinois. Now in the final year of his second term, the President looks forward to addressing the Illinois General Assembly about what we can do, together, to build better politics," the White House advises....

    Jordan Spieth brought his old form to the new year and had no trouble winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Sunday. Staked to a five-shot lead, Spieth made two straight birdies around the turn at Kapalua to restore his margin, and he spent the rest of the afternoon soaking up the views of surf and sun on Maui. The view from the top is just as stunning at the moment, not so much for those trying to catch him. Spieth made an 8-foot birdie putt to reach his target, even though he didn't need it. He closed with a...

    Barack Obama's love of golf has been widely documented, including the time he crashed a wedding at Torrey Pines last October. It's unlikely the next commander-in-chief will share the same zeal for the game that Obama does, especially if Ted Cruz gets elected. Cruz is on a bus tour through Iowa that covers 28 towns in six days. On Saturday's stop, Cruz was asked if he played golf. According to a New York Times report, Cruz said he played golf, but does so "horribly." "Do I golf?" Mr. Cruz said, repeating the question. "Horribly. And indeed, to call what I...

    In a report released Wednesday, the state auditor faulted Hawaii's Department of Human Services in failing to implement the state's online system for the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare. DHS did "not properly plan for or implement" the $155 million health care exchange, which is called the Kauhale On-Line Eligibility Application system, or KOLEA. "Poor planning and lack of effective leadership at the division level exacerbated already tight time constraints for developing KOLEA and forced the KOLEA Project Team to develop the eligibility and enrollment process while designing KOLEA," the audit states.

Trump prompted an uproar when he made his comments in response to deadly shootings in California by two Muslims who authorities said were radicalized. Gold letters spelling out "Trump International Golf Club," affixed to a landscaped stone wall at the entrance to the golf complex being built by DAMAC Properties, were removed on Thursday, according to a Reuters...

    Not much doubt remained that Jack Nicklaus would retain his record for victories in major golf tournaments. But any lingering thoughts of Tiger Woods possibly supplanting him were snuffed for good last week. What once seemed inevitable has transitioned to impossible. Stuck at 14 major victories since capturing the 2008 U.S. Open, Woods will not win five more majors. Woods will not win four more majors to tie Nicklaus mark of 18. He would do well to win another tournament, period, something he last accomplished at the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. He has teed off in 23 PGA tournaments since then...

I would love to see Trump and Obama playing golf together, in fact, you know someday this will happen.

Spieth had watched Phil Mickelson torch the back nine at Whistling Straits on TV prior to his Saturday tee time. So with a par at the par-4 10th, Spieth told himself to turn it on: "I said, 'All right, it's now or never' at that point.' " Right there, Spieth saved the possibility of adding yet another major in 2015. A back-nine torching of his own -- three strokes better than Mickelson's, produced an inward...

    Not long ago you could bank on the Old Course bringing out the best in Tiger Woods. This was something else entirely. On Thursday at the 144th British Open, Woods added a new chapter to his Season of Misery, a grisly four-over 76 that left him 11 shots behind clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson with the afternoon tee times still on the course. It was a shocking result at a revered track he once dominated while winning St. Andrews Opens in 2000 and 2005.

    On Tuesday evening, shortly before the British Opens past champions dinner at the Royal & Ancient Golf Club here, Gary Player, wearing a sharp pinstriped suit, entertained a few questions about the Old Course. We were standing on the clubhouse patio, with its famous view of the first and 18th holes. The course, in its current configuration, is more than 130 years old. Is it still an adequate challenge for todays professional golfers? If theres no wind, theyll tear this place apart, Player said.

    I think one thing Trump is doing correctly is ignoring specific details of questions he is being asked. 90% of the questions the GOP contenders will be getting asked will be total BS or a set up; and the bait should not be taken. In 2012, Juan Williams asked a stupid question about why the majority of blacks oppose the death penalty and whites support the death penalty. They should have used the question to attack affirmative action as being unconstitutional or busing for causing violence.

    Univision. NBCUniversal. Macy's. They've all severed ties with 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump over remarks he made about immigration and Mexicans. The two broadcast powers have refused to air the Miss Universe pageant, which Trump partially owns, on July 12, and Mexican officials affiliated with the outdated pageant have said they won't send a representative to the event. Trump has responded in-kind with harsh remarks, particularly through Twitter, setting ablaze any potential future relationship with these companies. However, while Trump has been battling on multiple fronts, he believed he has the backing of the golf world. Ive had tremendous support...

    Man, the fun never stops. President Obama continues to cast a pall of unseriousness over his presidency, which was already of questionable seriousness, planning a weekend of golf out in California following two days of fundraising on the Left Coast. This just a week after throwing a White House bash for 500 of his closest friends. Meanwhile, his wife is on a taxpayer-funded excursion to Europe where she is promoting health and education overseas while taking in some sights with her daughters and her mother. According to the Washington Examiner, Obama will golf in Palm Springs even amidst drought, a...
