This year's venue for the Senior PGA Championship has made news for reasons that have nothing to do with the tournament or the champion it might produce. The world's best 50-and-over golfers are competing for the first time at a course owned by a sitting president: Trump National Golf Club, on the Potomac River about 25 miles northwest of Washington. President Donald Trump has already visited the club four times since taking office. The course has been targeted by vandals and widely mocked for including a plaque commemorating a Civil War battle that never happened. Law enforcement officials on site are anticipating protests along the river, which is the only way to access the property without

Tiger Woods offered his first public update on his health after a fourth back surgery in three years in April, a spinal fusion surgery that will keep the 14-time major winner out an extended period of time. Woods, who said at the Hero World Challenge in December that he felt pain-free for the first time in years, said the fusion surgery was a success and provided instant relief from nerve pain. “It has been just over a month since I underwent fusion surgery on my back, and it is hard to express how much better I feel,” Woods wrote on his website.

The state Auditor's Office is reviewing the spending of public money by the University of New Mexico's athletic department on a 2015 golf trip to Scotland that included the athletic director, other employees and boosters, the agency confirmed Wednesday. Athletic director Paul Krebs is drawing criticism as more details about the international junket emerge following a series of public records requests filed by journalists, some of which netted documents with large swaths of information that had been blacked out. Krebs has said the $65,000 trip was meant to strengthen relationships with donors, but critics argue that it should have been paid for by the university's independent fundraising arm, not with athletic department money.

Keegan Bradley took a circuitous route to the PGA Tour: down the ski slopes of the toughest mountains in the Northeast. Over the last couple of season Bradley has been battling to get back to that rarified air, playing through swing changes and the USGA’s anchoring ban.

One shot away from elimination in the morning, Arizona State capped off a dream day with a resilient performance to win the NCAA women's golf title. NCAA individual champion Monica Vaughn delivered the dramatic shot that kept the Sun Devils alive in the rain-delayed semifinals against Stanford. Linnea Strom, equally clutch in the morning semifinals, set off a wild celebration with one last birdie in the afternoon final that gave Arizona State a 3-1-1 victory over Northwestern. "We've been working so hard for this," Strom said. "All we've been talking about is this moment right here. I can't describe this feeling. It's amazing." Arizona State won its eighth women's golf title, extending its NCAA

Troy Mullins is an athlete. Scratch that – she’s a heptathlete. While an undergraduate at Cornell, Mullins performed in the 200-meter, 800-meter, 100-meter hurdle, high jump, long jump, shot put and the javelin throw. She took to athletics at an early age, participating in volleyball, tennis and swimming. “I kind of just played everything,” she recalls. Except, of course, for golf – which isn’t really surprising. The game is expensive, and it’s pockmarked by a history of exclusion. That’s where Mullins comes in. “When I show up at a country club, I’m usually the only woman that I see … unless it’s a Tuesday. And I’m usually the only person of color. And I’m definitely the only black woman on

It wouldn’t be fair to characterize Jordan Spieth’s recent downturn in form as “slump,” but it’s certainly notable. After a hot start to the season, Spieth sandwiched T-11 and fourth placed finishes between three missed cuts, including one last week. Though, were it not for a quadruple bogey last week at the Byron Nelson, he would’ve made that cut. What explains Spieth’s recent downturn? Two things: Steady erosions in both his iron play and his putting. You can see the trend below, courtesy of the PGA Tour’s website. It’s worth noting that this isn’t unprecedented when it comes to Spieth. As I wrote during his much-overblown “slump” of 2016: Because Spieth doesn’t really boast one overriding

POTOMAC FALLS, Va. – John Daly is 51, not 31, but who’s counting? He’ll always be the lovable, grip-it-and-rip-it, devil-may-care golfer who says exactly what he thinks at any moment of the day and gathers fans like a latter-day Nicklaus or Palmer, senior tour version. On the eve of the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, Daly said that attitude is precisely the reason for his popularity. “Because I don't have any skeletons in my closet,” he said. “I'm a guy that's always told them when I screw up, I screw up and I admit it and go on. I don't hide anything. There's just nothing to hide with me. I've always just been straight upfront with you guys. I’m not one of those guys that's going to lie
