    Tiger Woods has staged one of the greatest comebacks from injury and controversy in sport by winning his first PGA tournament in five years. The former World Number One roared to victory at the FedEx Tour Championships in Georgia on Sunday night in front of thousands of fans. A huge crowd ran up the fairway and swamped the 18th green in frantic scenes in a bid to watch Woods sink the last putt of his round, and end his title drought. Woods, who has battled back from a crippling back injury and dealt with the backlash from a DUI arrest,...

    ATLANTA — A comeback not even Tiger Woods saw coming a year ago. A chaotic celebration that golf hasn’t seen even in the best of times. Woods delivered the perfect ending to his amazing return from four back surgeries on Sunday with a performance that felt like old times. He left the competition feeling hopeless as he built a five-shot lead early and hung on to win the Tour Championship. Woods raised both arms over his head after he tapped in for par and a 1-over 71 for a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel, the 80th victory of his PGA...
  • Tiger Woods caps comeback with Tour Championship victory

    Five years and four back surgeries later, Tiger Woods is a winner on the PGA Tour once again. Woods shot a one-over par 71 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta to wrap up a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel at the season-ending Tour Championship. It is his 80th victory on the PGA Tour, but his first since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. Justin Rose, who finished in a tie for fourth place five shots behind Woods, managed enough points to wrap up the $10 million FedEx Cup, which the tour considers its biggest prize. But the day, the galleries and...

    A man was bitten by an alligator while playing disc golf at a Florida park Monday, authorities said. Richard Peel, 35, was playing disc golf at Cliff Stephens Park in Clearwater when the incident occurred. He was bitten after trying to retrieve his disc from a pond, Clearwater Fire Rescue officials said. Witnesses locked arms to pull Peel to safety, Derrick Moody, who lives near the park, told FOX 13 Tampa Bay. “I guess they ran over and formed a ladder with each other and they were able to pull him out,” Moody told the station. Peel was taken to...

    President Donald Trump was all set to leave the White House Monday morning for a likely round of golf at his Northern Virginia club when the trip was abruptly canceled, with the White House shortly thereafter calling a “lid” indicating Trump would remain at the White House the rest of the day..... Weird, per pooler @betsy_klein: “The President emerged from the White House and boarded the motorcade at 10:39 am. He is wearing a bright red polo and a white Make America Great Again hat.

    For the clusters of onlookers, besuited power players and three former presidents who had all traveled to Washington National Cathedral, the muggy day was a historic opportunity to memorialize the life of Senator John McCain, who was remembered as a deeply patriotic war hero, a former Republican presidential candidate and a scrappy, humanly flawed, ultimately idealistic lawmaker. For President Trump, it was Saturday. In the many discussions about how to mark his life that Mr. McCain had with his staff and family before he died, he had made clear he did not want Mr. Trump to participate in anything they...

    The sports media attempted to draw Tiger Woods into the ongoing feud between NFL and NBA players on Sunday, after Woods wrapped up his final round at the US PGA Northern Trust tournament, in New Jersey.However, the 14-time major winner declined to get involved. Woods was first asked about his personal relationship with President Trump, and whether he would describe it as “personal or professional.”“Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years,” Woods replied. “We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together. I’ve known him pre-presidency and obviously during his presidency.”Then, however, the reporter asked what he clearly wanted to...

    The UK Daily Mail expressed shock and horror Sunday at the fact that President Donald Trump waited only 17 hours after the death of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) to play a round of golf, as he typically does Sunday (and as President Barack Obama did before him).The Daily Mail reported, with original ALL CAPS: “Donald Trump returns to the golf course just 17 HOURS after the death of John McCain as he faces criticism for failing to properly honor GOP giant’s life and legacy.” According to the article, written by Megan Sheets, Trump was guilty of having merely posted a “meager tweet with...

    John, who lived in the north of England, decided to go golfing in Scotland with his buddy Shawn , so they loaded up John's minivan and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible downpour so they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night. "I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed," she explained, "and I'm afraid the neighbours will talk if I let you stay in my house."...

    A potentially par-inspired spar erupted in Massachusetts Friday, leading one golfer to bite the finger off of another. A 47-year-old man was arrested and charged with mayhem after taking matters into his own mouth – er, hands – at the Southers Marsh Golf Club in Plymouth, Mass., WCVB reports. He was taken to jail, while his victim – whose thumb was reportedly chomped off to the knuckle – paid a visit to the hospital. Dispatcher audio obtained by WCVB reports that “two foursomes got into an altercation and there’s been a finger that’s been bitten off.” The audio also said...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Brandt Snedeker predicted low scores at the Wyndham Championship - but not this low. Snedeker shot an 11-under 59 on Thursday, falling one shot shy of matching the PGA Tour record. He made a 20-foot putt on his final hole to become the 10th player in tour history to break 60. Jim Furyk set the record with a 58 in the final round of the Travelers Championship in 2016. “I better be smiling,” Snedeker said. “I don’t do this every day.” This is the third consecutive year the PGA Tour has had a sub-60 round. Snedeker is...

    "Rush Limbaugh is a great guy who truly gets it!" President Trump tweeted early Tuesday morning. The president made the comment one day after Limbaugh explained to his radio listeners why Trump said in a July 29 tweet: "I would be willing to 'shut down' government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!"

    You may, or may not know it, but I have been very busy over the past two years putting my thoughts and ideas together in a book about golf. I am very proud of the results and in order to market the publication, I am asking friends and family to be the first to own a copy. Here's the Table of Contents from the new book, "Winning Golf Strategies," which I believe gives the reader valuable playing tips and insider information that I have gained through my own years of experience in the game and observations of my many golfing...

    In the flood of stories about how people close to President Trump sought to leverage their relationships for personal gain earlier this year, one story didn’t attract as much attention as it might otherwise have. That was the story about how Republican Party fundraiser Elliott Broidy, then already in the news for a more titillating reason, had allegedly tried to deliver a prized encounter for one of his clients. Broidy’s private defense company was seeking a contract with the government of Malaysia and its prime minister, Najib Razak. Apparently, to build a better relationship with Najib, Broidy attempted to set...
