    The College Fix ^ | 08/15/2017 | Daniel Payne
    It is easy for golfers to “turn a blind eye to [their] privilege,” athlete claims A professional athlete has identified an unexpected source of white privilege at our institutions of higher education: the back nine. “Golf is a perfect example of the world we live in terms of the haves and have nots,” writes Anya Alvarez at Salon. Alvarez writes of discovering “the white privilege in college sports” when she learned that less-popular sports (such as golf) are often bankrolled by a university’s football and basketball programs—“the labor,” she writes, “of African-American athletes on the football and basketball teams who...

    Tiger Woods, who had been known to have the painkillers Vicodin and Xanax in his system when he was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence in Jupiter on Memorial Day, also had Dilaudid, Ambien and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) -- the active principle of cannabis -- in his system that night, according to an ESPN.com report.

    President Donald Trump took time out of his busy schedule to greet a wedding party at his New Jersey golf club on the first day of his 17-day vacation. Trump hopped out of his golf cart to say hello and schmooze attendees of a wedding that was hosted at his National Golf Club in Bedminster on Saturday. The president sported his iconic Make America Great Again cap as he ambled over to the group and asked some of the women where the bride was. Trump was seemingly in a good mood on the first day of his 17-day golf vacation,...

    When President Donald Trump and other world leaders gather at the United Nations next month for the annual U.N. General Assembly, Trump may have a message for his fellow heads of state: “C’mon over to my golf club in New Jersey.” Trump is considering inviting an unspecified number of world leaders to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, in the days surrounding the annual global gathering at the U.N. in New York City, the Washington Post reported. The U.S. president is expected to address the General Assembly for the first time Sept. 19 and also meet with...

    New England's got a bone to pick with New Jersey, apparently. Many are coming to the defense of the Garden State after two writers from The Boston Globe penned an article criticizing President Donald Trump for breaking the tradition of spending his presidential vacation at a New England destination. Trump kicked off his first summer getaway as president Friday at his golf club estate in Bedminster, New Jersey, whereas former President Barack Obama spent his days in Martha's Vineyard. Obama is heading back there for his first time post-presidency this weekend, too. The headline of the story published Friday reads,...

    At a recent community forum to discuss plans for the Obama Presidential Center, Karin Droegemueller stepped up to the microphone and introduced herself as an "angry birder." She is among a flock of birders who fear that the proposed $30 million Tiger Woods golf course and expanded driving range tied to the development of the Obama Center will ward off the millions of migratory birds that stop in Jackson Park, and displace the nearly 300 species that have helped make the park a favorite Chicago birding destination... But not all open land is equal, they say. A manicured golf course...

    An elderly couple were having dinner one evening when the husband reached across the table, took his wife's hand in his and said, "Martha, soon we will be married 50 years, and there's something I have to know. In all of these 50 years, have you ever been unfaithful to me?” Martha replied, "Well Henry, I have to be honest with you. Yes, I've been unfaithful to you on three occasions during these 50 years, but always for a good reason. Henry was obviously hurt by his wife's confession, but said, "I never suspected. Can you tell me what you...

    Well, it looks like recently fired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci had big plans before his tenure flamed out at 11 days. Plans that included giving the everyman a chance to play golf with the president. In a memo Scaramucci shared with CNN Wednesday night and was first published on Medium by right-wing provocateur Mike Cernovich, the former comms director told the White House press staff that they should take advantage of President Trump’s golfing habit as a way to show his fun side. -a group dedicated to serving as a PR department for POTUS and his family members....

    RUSH: How about Jordan Spieth? Did you see Jordan Spieth’s round yesterday at the British Open? (interruption) Okay, you didn’t see it. Jordan Spieth… I mentioned this after he won the Masters a couple years ago. What I fine… I don’t want to sound like an old fogy here. But what a classy guy. He’s 24 in four days. He’s the youngest player, professional, to win the British Open. He’s the first under 24 to win three majors. He’s from Dallas. He is… If you have a daughter, he’s the guy you would want your daughter to marry. He’s the...

    President Trump faced something different while attending the U.S. Women's Open at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J. — a tiny and polite protest. In fact the three women and one man wearing purple t-shirts reading, "USGA, Dump Sexist Trump," simply stared at the president once he arrived a little after 3 p.m and then gave up less than an hour later to get some ice cream, according to the White House pool report. It didn't appear that Trump, wearing a campaign "Make America Great Again" hat and who also attended Saturday's tournament, saw the protesters, apparently part of the...

    The biggest star of the US Women’s Open golf championship held at the Trump National Golf Club on Friday was not a female golfer. The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, arrived to his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., just as the number 3 ranked player in the world, Lexi Thompson, who has played with the president in Florida, was set to take a shot, the New York Times reported. *snip* But it had to be tough to not pay attention when the crowd erupted in cheers, screams, and chants of “make America great again” and “Mr. President.”...

    The journalists at CBS and NBC have found a new Donald Trump “outrage” to hyperventilate over: The President drove his golf cart onto a green at one of the courses he owns. This, according to CBS This Morning guest host David Westin, is a “mortal sin.” Today's Matt Lauer insisted he was “gasping” over video of Trump.  On CBS, co-host Norah O’Donnell huffed, “Well, golf is a sport of etiquette, but President Trump appears to have committed a golfing sin.” Continuing the religious language, unusual for liberal journalists, Westin excoriated, “This is a mortal sin, actually, if you're a golfer....

    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.
