Peyton Manning: People Told Me Not to Golf with Trump

7/12/2017 9:45 AM PDT
Breaking News

Peyton Manning says he was pressured to REJECT President Donald Trump's invitation to golf with him last month ... but #18 didn't listen ... saying turning down the POTUS would be "un-American."

The NFL legend appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and said he happened to be in D.C. back in June when he got a call from the White House asking him to join Trump for golf.

"I gotta tell ya Jimmy, I had a lot of people telling me not to do it," Manning said.

"I think it would have been almost un-American to have said 'No.'"

Manning said Trump was a gracious host and they had fun golfing together.

When asked if Trump cheated -- as Samuel L. Jackson has previously alleged -- Peyton shot that down too and said he counted Donald's strokes.

Tiger Woods Completes 'Intensive Program' ... For Rx Pill Issue

7/3/2017 3:11 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tiger Woods is out of the woods for his issues with prescription pills ... at least that's what he's claiming now.

Tiger posted a message Monday saying he completed an out of state "private intensive program" to deal with his medication problem that got him busted for DUI in May.

He goes on to say he'll continue to tackle his problem with the help of his doctors, family and friends. 

We broke the story ... Tiger was found by cops asleep at the wheel while driving in Florida. He failed a field sobriety test that was captured on video, and later blew zeros on a breathalyzer ... meaning he was not intoxicated with alcohol. 

Tiger blamed the DUI on a bad mix of prescription pills ... for which he said he'd be getting "professional help." Seems like the job's all done.

Shooter McGavin Post-DUI Advice For Tiger Woods ... You Can Bounce Back, I Did

EXCLUSIVE

One of the greatest (fictional) golfers ever says he still believes in Tiger Woods ... and is giving TW some game on how to bounce back from his DUI ... 'cause he's been there too. 

We talked to Christopher McDonald, the actor who played legendary golfer Shooter McGavin in "Happy Gilmore" (classic) and asked him about Tiger's very real problems.

McDonald is the right guy to ask ... he was popped for DWI back in 2013, and has since cleaned his life up, something he believes Tiger Woods can -- and will -- do.

"I went through it myself, I got off. He'll get off."

As far as Tiger's legacy ... McDonald says arrest or no arrest Tiger's legacy is secured.

"He's been a hero of mine and a hero of America for a long time. One of the greatest golfers ever."

Donald Trump Golf Clubs Hit Auction Block

7/1/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump is one of the most polarizing political figures in American history, but there's actually a consensus on his golf skills ... and now those skills can rub off on you if the price is right.

RR Auction is hawking TaylorMade clubs that were swung by Trump at his course in Bedminster, NJ more than 10 years ago. They were gifted to his personal caddie, Andrew Lombardo

The irons are engraved with "D. Trump." The future Prez later changed his signature engraving to "DJT1."

The auction house is hoping the clubs will fetch around $30k.

Sounds high, right? But fact is ... Trump's an excellent golfer with a 3 handicap.

Here's the thing ... even if you buy the clubs, don't think you can drive the golf cart on the green

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.

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.
