    When Tiger Woods and Lindsay Vonn split over a week ago, the Olympic skiier posted on Facebook the explanation that 'both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart.' Daily Mail Online can now exclusively reveal that during one of those 'times apart' Tiger cheated on Lindsay - with a 'faceless, nameless woman', a friend reveals. 'He had a relapse in the sex department,' a close friend reveals to Daily Mail Online. 'Lindsey found out about women again. Always while he's on the road. Just like when he was with Elin.'

    There was nothing overrated about Rickie Fowler at The Players Championship. Criticized this week by his peers as an underachiever, Fowler answered with the greatest finish in the 34-year history at the TPC Sawgrass. He rallied from a five-shot deficit on the back nine by playing the final six holes in 6-under par. In a three-hole playoff, he took on every shot. And he made birdie from inside 6 feet three times Sunday on the island-green 17th. Rickie Fowler hits from the sixth tee during the final round of The Players Championship golf tournament Sunday, May 10, 2015, in Ponte...

    When a Chinese honor guard joins a military parade in Russia’s capital this weekend, watched by China’s President Xi Jinping, it will mark more than just a symbolic recognition of the two countries’ contributions to the Allied victory in 1945. China’s participation also reflects an upgrade of its military ties with Russia, including joint naval exercises and a revival of arms purchases, that could complicate U.S.-led efforts to counter both nations’ expanding military activities, analysts and diplomats say. They’ve basically come to a consensus that despite their differences over some national interests, they really face the same common enemy,” said...

The pair announced their relationship in mutual social media postings in March 2013. There was no immediate word from Woods on the split.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. – Coming into Sunday at the Masters, Jordan Spieth held a four-shot lead, and that was enough to ensure that this day would see a memorable story, one either of triumph at a young age or of gut-punch collapse. What's more, Spieth became just the fifth player – and first since 1976 – to lead the tournament wire-to-wire, something not even Tiger has managed to do in his four Masters victories.

    DEVELOPING: Jordan Spieth set a 36-hole scoring record at the Masters on Friday. The 21-year-old Texan turned in another dazzling round, going to the weekend with a 14-under 130 total. That broke the record of 131, set by Raymond Floyd in 1976. Spieth shot a 6-under 66 in the second round, essentially blowing away everyone in the field except Charley Hoffman. He was four strokes behind and still on the course, turning in the sort of performance that would normally be good enough for the lead. Not the way Spieth was playing. He had 15 birdies and only one bogey...

Despite our good faith negotiating with Iran (i.e. faithfully promising to serve Iranian interests while running interference for them with the other European delegates) the Ayatollah’s team pulled a fast one at the last minute. Now they want to keep all of the enriched uranium they have been manufacturing for the past 5 years instead of giving it to Russia for safe keeping (Ha ha! That’s a good one too: “give it to Russia for ‘safe keeping’.”) Not that Iran ever actually promised not to...

The White House has not revealed details of his trip, but local news reports say the president is expected to stay at the Floridian National Golf Club where he will hit the links. The president played a round of golf with Tiger Woods at the course in February 2013. The club’s owner is Jim Crane, a Democratic donor and owner of Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros.

The two leaders seemed at ease together, smiling and laughing in casual clothes as they sized up their shots.

    Barack and Michelle Obama, speaking to People Magazine, of all disappointments, shared the disheartening news that they have experienced what they called racism. Barack, for example, apparently has had trouble, before he was president, hailing a cab in Chicago, to which an immediate thought might occur to anyone who has been to Chicago: Who hasn't? Also, Barack, at a black-tie event, when he, too, was in festive livery, apparently was asked by another guest if he would get them a cup of coffee. For her recollection, Michelle came up with a visit to a Target store as first lady. She...

    WINDERMERE, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) — Tiger Woods tied for last place in his return to golf after four months and found at least one reason for optimism. At least he has his health. Except for flu-like symptoms on Saturday when he ended up vomiting on the golf course, Woods made it through 72 holes of the Hero World Challenge by swinging as hard as he wanted without feeling any pain. In his eyes, that far outweighed the shocking sight of so many duffed chips...

    In his "Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior," George Washington offered this sage advice: "Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company." Too bad President Obama and his best Chicago golfing buddy (BCGB), Dr. Eric Whitaker, didn't heed our Founding Father's wisdom. The duo's continued intimacy, as the stench of government corruption thickens around them, speaks volumes about our current commander in chief's reckless disregard for his reputation. How close is Obama to the beleaguered doc? They met playing basketball while grad students at Harvard...
