    SCOTCH PLAINS, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — What’s in a name? In Scotch Plains, a lot, when it comes to a public golf course. A club was renamed this week, just in time for a 100th anniversary gala on Friday night celebrating its African-American history, CBS2’s Andrea Grymes reported Thursday.

But dig a little deeper, beyond the green, and you’ll see it’s definitely not. “The socials they had here. That’s what the place looked like,” Preserve Shady Rest Committee member Thurman Simmons said. It was the very first African-American-owned and operated golf club in the United States. The clubhouse is an old farmhouse from the 1700s. In 1921, a group of prominent Black investors bought the property and started Shady Rest Golf and Country Club, a place that became a hotbed for sports and entertainment during a time when African-Americans were not welcome everywhere. “Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, W.E.B.

    (CNN)The festive season is typically time for pigs in blankets, but at one British golf club, some oinkers have been creating quite a stir. Two huge pigs recently made their way onto the course at Lightcliffe Golf Club in Yorkshire, disrupting play and even injuring some golfers who tried to shoo them away. They first appeared on Sunday, remembers president Philip Marshall, although he tells CNN Sport the club "don't know where they came from.""One of our golfers saw these pigs on the course and tried to shoo them off and he sustained a cut on his leg and had to go to A&E for a shot," Marshall said. "And they disappeared then, so we thought they'd gone. One of the pigs finds its way onto the pavement of a road next to the golf course. "On Tuesday, they reappeared then, and they dug up the 18th green, the first tee and then our head green's director tried to shoo one of them off and it turned on him and it cut his leg. So he had to go...
    Tiger Woods posted an amazing update on his health months after suffering a devastating leg injury in a Los Angeles car crash that put his professional golf career in jeopardy. Woods posted a video with a two-word message: "Making progress."

It appeared to be the first visual evidence of him hitting a ball and swinging a club since the February crash. He still had the black compression sleeve on his right leg while he was on the course. He’s been spotted in plenty of pictures and video in recent months walking around. Last week, he was seen with his girlfriend Erica Herman.

    Tiger Woods is back. Well, not on the PGA Tour, not yet. But for the first time since the gruesome car accident in which he suffered devastating leg injuries, Woods shared footage of himself out on the driving range, taking a full swing. “Making progress,” read the simple caption from the golf legend.

    TIGER Woods is one of sports most famous names. So it goes without saying that the golfer, said to be worth over £600 million, can afford a luxurious lifestyle in Florida, where he resides. 24 24Tiger Woods lives an enviable lifestyle in Florida with his £600m fortuneCredit: Getty Images - Getty The 45-year-old, who is recovering in his compound after a horror accident left him with serious injuries, has always favoured the 'Sunshine State' - first living in Windermere, then moving to the exclusive Jupiter Island. There, Woods is a restaurant owner - running the well-respected sports bar Woods Jupiter. He bought a plot of land, and built a home nearby for his mum Kultida to live in. And he's a member of the most exclusive golf club in America in Medalist Village - that features a 18-hole course designed by Greg Norman and costs £100,000-per-year to join.

    Photo via Village of North Palm Beach/TwitterA Florida community is asking residents to be “please be cautious” after an American crocodile took up residence at a local golf course. According to the Village of North Palm Beach, an American crocodile has set up camp at the Country Club, and not only is it not budging, but it legally can’t be removed.  “An American crocodile is living in the ponds at the Country Club golf course,” says a Twitter post from the Village of North Palm Beach. “The Fish & Wildlife Commission says federal law will not allow removal of the croc, so please be cautious near our golf course ponds.”  The post also shows a photo of the seemingly large croc with its mouth open wide as it lays out near a sand trap.  According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, native American crocodiles are a “shy and reclusive species,” so don’t be too alarmed when you come across one showing off it’s teeth like in the photo above, this is actually called “gaping,” and is often used...
    The best golfers learn how to play the sport 'reversed' by switching hands when holding the club, a new study suggests.  From a sample of 150 golfers, researchers have found the successful players tend to hold their golf club in a 'reversed stance'.  Traditionally, if a person is right-handed they would place their right hand at the bottom of the club when they grip.  Conversely, a right-handed person who places their left hand at the bottom would be playing in a so-called 'reversed' stance. Left-handed people who play right-handed – or vice-versa – could have a better chance of excelling in the sport, as major championship winners Phil Mickelson and Jordan Spieth have demonstrated. American golfer Phil Mickelson, pictured, is right-handed, but holds his club as a left-handed person would traditionally do - with the left hand nearer the bottom Adopting this reverse technique may help players hit the ball further and with greater accuracy according to the research team, led by Dr Oliver Runswick, lecturer in performance psychology at King's College London and a golf player himself. The study was inspired...
    A woman has been left stunned after a massive mob of kangaroos parked themselves on a golf course's fairway and waited for her to tee off. Amateur golfer Wendy Powick posted a video of the encounter on Monday after she was interrupted by the animals while playing at Arundel Hills Country Country Club on the Gold Coast in Queensland. 'Never ever seen this happen before when a whole mob of kangaroos at Arundel Hills Country Club decided to charge up the fairway and stop right at the front of the Tee box to watch me… absolutely gold and only in Australia…,' Ms Powick wrote. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Wendy Powick (@wendywoo.golf) The footage captured the golfer preparing to swing at the tee box when a large group of at least 15 kangaroos appeared in the distance and swarmed the green, hopping towards Ms Powick. A man can be heard from behind the camera saying: 'How's this for golf today. They've all decided to settle in the middle of the fairway.' Amateur golfer Wendy Powick (pictured)...
    White House intelligence expert Fiona Hill claims she was groped while working as a waitress while she was a student at St Andrews University. Dr Hill, 56, claims she was touched inappropriately while working at the prestigious Royal and Ancient Golf Club, and says her manager then threatened to blacklist her after she made a complaint.  Former senior director in the US National Security Council Dr Hill, who shot to prominence after her testimony during the first impeachment of Donald Trump, also said one fellow student accused her of sleeping with her tutor because of her good grades. Dr Hill studied Russian and modern history at St Andrews, describing it in her new memoir as an 'exhilarating' and 'completely transformational' experience which put her 'on my life's path' in the mid-80s. She described it as a 'bubble of advantage and privilege', where peers included relatives of the Queen and children of government ministers - and recalled being described to her face as a 'common northerner.'

    Associated Press NEW YORK — Donald Trump’s company is under criminal investigation by a district attorney in a New York City suburb into whether it misled officials to cut taxes for a golf course there, according to The New York Times. The district attorney’s office subpoenaed records from both the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester and the town of Ossining that handles the club’s taxes, said the Times, citing “people with knowledge of the matter.” The newspaper didn’t say why those people had requested anonymity. The probe led by District Attorney Mimi E. Rocah, a Democrat, appears to focus in part on whether the former president’s company submitted misleading valuations on the golf course. In a statement, the Trump Organization suggested the probe was politically motivated, noting that it had hammered out a compromise with the town over its long-running efforts to cut taxes in June, a deal signed off by a county judge. “The suggestion that anything was inappropriate is completely false and incredibly irresponsible,” the Trump statement said. “The witch hunt continues.” The district attorney’s office...

    NEKOOSA, Wis. (AP) — A classic old golf course — The Lido — is being resurrected 1,000 miles from the original with the assistance of a video game and GPS-guided tractors. The Lido at Sand Valley Golf Resort in central Wisconsin is perhaps the most ambitious project the golf course-developing Keiser family has undertaken. They aim to make an exact recreation of the original course on Long Island, New York, down to bunker positioning, fairway contours, even directional orientation. All that will be missing is the Atlantic Ocean. The original The Lido Golf Club opened in 1917 and was considered in the same company as Royal Dornoch, Ballybunion, Pine Valley Shinnecock and National Golf Links as among the best golf course designs in the world. The course was designed by architect C.B. Macdonald and included three holes inspired by entries in a golf architecture design competition in Country Life magazine. One contest winner was Alister MacKenzie, considered one of the greatest golf architects ever. The Lido fell into disrepair during the Great Depression and closed when the land was...

    McDERMOTT — The top-three teams in Tuesday’s Division II Southeast District boys golf sectional championships were seperated by just four strokes. Gallia Academy took the top-spot among the five teams who qualified for next week’s D-II district tournament, finishing with a team score of 342 at The Elks Country Club in McDermott.

    MILLBRAE – A 49-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after he struck his 18-year-old son with a golf club multiple times over the son withdrawing money from his bank account without permission, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. Officials said the victim withdrew “a small amount of money” on Sept. 17 and went with a friend to a coffee shop. When he returned home in Millbrae, his parents confronted him and were upset he had taken money without getting their permission, authorities said. The victim was hit “several times” by his father with a golf club, resulting in “moderate injuries,” according to officials. The teen didn’t report the incident until returning to school on Monday. The Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer began an investigation; the father was arrested Sept. 21 at his home and booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility, authorities said.

Making her first start since the Tokyo Olympics, the second-round South Korean player closed with a 3-under 69 at Oregon Golf Club for a four-stroke victory over Jeongeun Lee and Su Oh.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Playing in Boston’s Harambee Park, young neighbors get some notes in networking. Marcos Baugh runs Urban Golf Club, where all are welcome. “I frame golf as a tool. Not so much a sport or just a game to be played. It really is a tool that can bridge socioeconomic gaps in the community,” the 27-year-old Stoughton native explained. “It’s always about who you meet and who you know. I don’t think there’s a better place to know or meet somebody then on the golf course.” This is about a lot more than golf instruction. There are some really important conversations happening here. Urban Golf Club also teaches kids financial literary – setting the foundation for a lifetime of smart spending and saving money. “Some kids don’t have access to a bank account. I’ll take it upon myself to give them a shoebox with the logo and check in once a month and see if they have the money from the month before,” Baugh said. There are big plans for the growing program, which is built on core...
    UKRAINIAN VILLAGE — A dome to protect a city-owned salt storage and distribution site is on track for completion by the end of September.  Known as the Grand Avenue Salt Dome Replacement Facility, the structure was commissioned by the city earlier this year to cover a previously exposed pile of salt used by workers during icy conditions. The project is “on time,” with completion expected for Sept. 30, said Bryant Payne, communications director for the Public Building Commission of Chicago, which is overseeing the project. The bulbous white structure at 2555 W. Grand Ave. looms over Smith Park across the street and is visible from blocks away. Since construction began in April, the dome has been the subject of neighborhood intrigue and jokes, with some calling it a “giant golf ball.” Please let us know if the Giant Golfball is in fact filled with tiny golfballs. MANY people think this.— Claire Hyman (@hyimclaire) August 24, 2021At a community meeting for the project in January, neighbors were generally supportive of the dome but pressed city officials to spend money to maintain the...

    (CBS Baltimore) — Sedgefield Country Club, in Greensboro, North Carolina, is home to the Wyndham Championship, the last PGA Tour event before the FedExCup Playoffs. Sedgefield has been a regular Tour stop since 2008. But its relationship with professional golf, not to mention its rich history, dates back much further. Sedgefield Country Club formed in 1925, around the time famed course architect Donald Ross drew up sketches of his next masterpiece. Ross’s courses use the natural topography to help dictate the path of the course and play on it. They work on a sort of risk-reward system, challenging players to be a little aggressive and then offering scoring opportunities if they succeed. Sedgefield was no different. (Ross also designed Pinehurst No. 2, Aronimink Golf Club and East Lake Golf Club, among many others.)

    NORTH LAWNDALE — Neighborhood teens have revived the Douglass Park mini-golf course that had been dilapidated and unused for more than a decade. Saturday’s grand opening of the Douglass 18 mini-golf course marked a culmination of years of research, planning and designing. More than 40 young people from North Lawndale and surrounding neighborhoods helped rebuild the 18-hole course, which had been defunct for so long that many never before had the opportunity to play there. The entirety of the mini-golf attraction at the Douglass Park Field House has been remodeled to the young people’s specifications. The worn-out landscaping was updated, the holes were upgraded with custom-made sculptures and obstacles and the decayed putting green was replaced with multicolored turf grass. “I feel very proud that we made that happen,” said Sabrina Guardado, a teen who worked on the project. “It’s really amazing seeing the whole progress from the start, and seeing everybody being supportive and following us and helping us.” Credit: Colin Boyle/Block Club ChicagoThe new mini-golf course at Douglass Park on August 6, 2021.Credit: Colin Boyle/Block Club...

    Mark Meadows refused to name the former Cabinet officials he says met at former President Donald Trump's golf club in New Jersey last week. The former White House chief of staff declined to get into specifics on Monday as he dismissed the media firestorm that ensued after he said "Cabinet members" were gathering, which some took to be a reference to some alt-presidency as Trump claims the 2020 election was stolen from him. Trump and his close allies, including Meadows, also face increased scrutiny with the release of notes showing the former president pressed top Justice Department officials to declare the 2020 as election “corrupt” during his efforts to overturn the results and the start of the House's select committee investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Meadows told Newsmax he "obviously" was referring to Cabinet members from "previous times" during his interview on the cable news network last Thursday, "Even if I was just referring to his own kitchen cabinet, we’re talking about what we need to do to keep the 'America First' agenda going forward," Meadows...
    The FC Barcelona laughs Bale SD New mess in social networks between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. This time it has been the culé club who has bundled it. The Barça squad spent Sunday afternoon playing golf, a hobby of Madrid player Gareth Bale. In this way, the club wanted to remember the white player and his famous flag ‘Welsh. Golf. Real Madrid. In that order ‘. For this reason, the Blaugrana team has shared on their social networks the images of their players playing a few holes on a golf course in Germany. But not only photos, since next to them was the message: “Barça. Training Camp. Golf. In that order.” A clear allusion to the player and his flag.

    Donald Trump has around $102 million cash on hand, new federal campaign filings made this weekend reveal, and the former president claimed he brought in $82 million in contributions in the first half of 2021. According to WinRed, the GOP's main contribution site, Trump has raised far more money than any other Republican. He has also surpassed each of the party's main three fundraising arms in donations. 'Bringing the truth about the Rigged and Stolen 2020 election to light is critical to restoring faith in our election process and our country itself,' Trump said in a Saturday statement on his massive fundraising. 'On behalf of the millions of men and women who share my outrage and want me to continue to fight for the truth, I am grateful for your support.' 'I can't imagine a more important time to elect good Republicans to the House and Senate,' the former president continued. 'Commonsense conservatives were never more badly needed. We must have people who will stand for our America First Agenda of lower taxes, fewer regulations, support the Second Amendment, strong...

    Former President Donald Trump has been holding meetings with "Cabinet members" at his golf club in New Jersey this week, according to a top ally. Mark Meadows, who was Trump's final White House chief of staff, said the work at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, is focused on "what comes next" with regards to 2022 and 2024 elections, after which Newsmax host Steve Cortes (himself a former Trump adviser) asked whether he wanted to break any news about his meetings with the former president. "We met with several of our Cabinet members tonight," Meadows said. "We actually had a follow-up member — meeting with some of our Cabinet members, and as we were looking at that.

    Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said that former President Donald Trump has been meeting with “cabinet members” at his New Jersey golf resort, mysteriously adding that they’re planning to “move forward in a real way.” On Friday night’s edition of Newsmax’s Cortes & Pellegrino, Meadows defended Trump’s failed endorsement in a Texas special election runoff, saying “the magic is still there.” He added that Trump is “a president that is fully engaged, highly focused, and remaining on task.” Co-host Steve Cortes coyly asked Meadows if he wanted to “break any news” on the program. As he did throughout the interview, Meadows referred to Trump in the present-tense “the president,” and described meeting with “members of our cabinet”: Well, we met with several of our cabinet members tonight, we actually had a follow-up member, meeting with some of our cabinet members, and as we were looking at that, we were looking at what does come next. I’m not authorized to speak on behalf of the president, but I can tell you this steve. We wouldn’t be meeting tonight...
    Japan will wake up on Sunday with the same expectation that last April he attended the final day of the Masters, a Monday morning in which there was the highest work absenteeism of the year to see Hideki Matsuyama’s green jacket. After overcoming the contagion of Covid-19, After having to get up early on Saturday to play two holes, make a birdie, and go out again at four o’clock in the main game with Xander Schauffele and Carlos Ortiz, the Japanese golfer positioned himself within a single stroke of the American after a score card. 67 strokes. The traffic jam is formidable. Eight players, including Paul Casey, who seeks to succeed his compatriot Justin Rose, and Rory McIlroy, the golfer who plays without a cap because the ones that are not made to measure are too baggy. Without options are Adri Arnaus, sunk on Saturday (74 hits) and Jorge Campillo (69), forty-fifth and fifty-fourth. It was an uninterrupted day, extremely hot, muggy. To score. Matsuyama, who started the day of the movement with bogey, made five birdies and...
