President Trump Called Out for Cardinal Sin Driving Cart On Golf Green??

6/22/2017 7:39 AM PDT

President Trump's got a new scandal on his hands, and this one goes deep ... like the 18th hole deep.

A video's surfaced of the Prez golfing during one of his weekend trips to Bedminster, his NJ golf course. It shows Trump driving his golf cart across what many people believe to be the green -- a major party foul, as ALL golfers know.

Now, there's some debate if he's actually on the green, or just the fringe. The fellow golfers he talked to at the time didn't complain -- but the video's become a thing on the Internet.

If he is on the green, we suspect we know how POTUS would have Sean Spicer handle this one: "You guys, it's HIS golf course!"

9:45 AM PT -- Debate over. We've consulted multiple golf course employees, and they ALL agree Trump's definitely on the green. For what it's worth.

Tiger Woods I'm Getting Professional Help ... for Rx Pill Issues

6/19/2017 4:40 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tiger Woods says he's getting "professional help" for his issues with prescription medication in the wake of his DUI arrest -- but he's not describing the situation as rehab. 

"I'm currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder," Woods said in a statement. 

"I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour."

As we previously reported, Woods was arrested on May 29 in Jupiter, FL -- and was extremely out of it. He could barely stand up straight and couldn't tie his shoes. 

Woods blamed his state on a bad mixture of prescription medication. 

Woods going public about the professional help could well be a strategy in his pending DUI case. It's often used to show the judge that he's taking his problem seriously, which could affect sentencing. 

Woods was spotted out in Florida with his kids over the weekend -- so it doesn't appear he's in a live-in facility for his treatment. 

U.S. Open Champ Brooks Koepka My GF's a Beauty Queen ... Insanely Hot Pics

Brooks Koepka won his first major at the U.S. Open Sunday ... but it's his super hot model girlfriend who's the REAL winner.

Meet 28-year-old Jena Sims -- former Miss Georgia Teen USA -- who joined Koepka to receive his shiny Championship trophy after beating out stars like Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama.

She's also an aspiring model/actress who was in 'Sharknado' and an episode of "Entourage." And her social media photos are insane.

Here's hoping Koepka keeps winnin' majors ... 'cause we'd love to see some more of Sims.

Congrats!!

Dustin Johnson's having a busy week -- his fiancee, Paulina Gretzky, gave birth on Monday ... and then he flew out to Wisconsin for the U.S. open on Tuesday -- and it's all part of the family plan. 

With Paulina ready to pop, the couple planned for a C-section delivery at an L.A. hospital on Monday -- giving Johnson enough time to attend the birth and still make it to the golf tourney, which starts Thursday. 

Everything went according to plan, according to ESPN's Ian O'Connor, who says Paulina delivered a bouncing baby boy on Monday. The couple picked the name River Jones Johnson.

Sources tell TMZ Sports Dustin and Wayne Gretzky were both at the hospital for the special moment.

The very next day, DJ hopped on a flight to Erin, Wisconsin to gear up for the U.S. Open with a clear head -- knowing Paulina and baby are happy and healthy back home.

Our Erin, Wisconsin sources (yeah, we got those) tell us Dustin appeared focused on golf and confident when he got to Wisconsin -- but he's clearly pumped about having his 2nd kid.

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 Struggles with Breathalyzer 'Don't Suck It, Blow Out!'

6/2/2017 5:04 AM PDT

Tiger Woods was still so out of it 2 and a half hours after cops pulled him over for DUI ... he stumbled and mumbled his way through breathalyzer testing.

Police released video of Woods back at the station at 4:30 AM Monday. The woman tasked with testing him had to whistle and wave in Woods' face just to get him to open his eyes. Explaining the steps to take the test wasn't easy either.

Multiple times she has to tell him not to suck, but blow into the tube.

As we've reported ... Tiger ultimately blew .000 -- supporting his statement he was not drinking. However, this video -- just like the images of him attempting field sobriety testing -- makes it clear he had no business being behind the wheel. He says he had a bad reaction to combining prescription meds.

The sole light-hearted moment -- Tiger describing his hair color as "mostly brown and fading and ... brown." Even the cop had to laugh.

Charles Barkley 'We Don't Know If Tiger Has a Drug Problem'

Breaking News

Charles Barkley is going to bat for his old friend, Tiger Woods -- saying people like Jack Nicklaus who say Tiger needs help don't REALLY know what they're talking about.

Barkley appeared on 97.5 FM The Fanatic Philadelphia on Wednesday and was asked for his thoughts on Tiger's DUI. He's clearly upset with people assuming Tiger has a serious substance abuse issue. 

"Even Jack Nicklaus, somebody I really respect, talking about, 'Tiger really needs help.' Well he don't KNOW that. We don't know if Tiger has a drug problem."

Barkley added, "He just had a bad reaction [to prescription medication]. He wasn't out there drinking and driving."

Barkley says the "haters" are "in heaven right now because they get a chance to dump on the guy."

Barkley and Tiger were very close friends before 2009 -- and would regularly hit Vegas together. But Tiger cut him off after his marriage fell apart.

Tiger Woods Didn't Party with Me Before DUI! Model Shoots Down Rumors

EXCLUSIVE

Laci Kay Somers wants no part of a Tiger Woods scandal ... the wildly popular, and smoking hot, Instagram model is denying rumors she was hanging with him prior to his DUI arrest.

Laci tells TMZ ... multiple reports claiming she was in Florida Sunday night with Tiger are completely false. She insists she was in L.A. all weekend with her mom, and more to the point ... she's NEVER met Tiger.

Fact is, Laci fits the mold -- smoking hot blonde a la Tiger's current squeeze Kristin Smith ... not to mention Lindsey Vonn and Elin Nordegren. However, the model, who has 8 million IG followers, says she has zero history with him ... no phone calls, no texts, no sliding up in the DMs.

She has no clue how the rumor started, but we'll say this ... Tiger's done worse.

Tiger Woods DUI Arrest Video

5/31/2017 3:40 PM PDT

Cops have just released the police video of the Tiger Woods DUI arrest -- showing the golfer zonked out during the stop and bombing field sobriety tests. 

The footage was shot early Monday morning from a Jupiter PD dash cam. Cops say Woods was passed out behind the wheel when they approached the car.

He's almost like a zombie in the footage -- swaying, incoherent ... and unable to even tie his own shoes. 

At one point during the stop, an officer tells Tiger he smells the "odor" of alcohol on him -- though Woods insists he did not drink. A breathalyzer later showed Tiger's BAC was .000.

The incident took place roughly 8 miles from Tiger's home in Jupiter, FL. An obviously disoriented Woods told cops he believed he was in L.A. ... driving toward Orange County.

Woods insists alcohol was not a factor and blames it on an "unexpected reaction to prescription medications."
