However, on Friday — the last day for him to commit to the Wells Fargo Championship — a tournament he had only one once, back in 2007 — Woods opted to pass.

Shutdown: Senate to vote on bills in effort to reopen government The Senate will vote Thursday on a pair of bills to fund the federal government in an effort to end the budget standoff, now in its 34th day, that has triggered the longest government shutdown in history and a contentious battle in Washington. The chamber will vote to begin debate on a bill proposed by President Donald Trump that would include temporary deportation protections for Dreamers in exchange for $5.7 billion for his wall along the southern border. If that bill fails to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster, senators will then vote on a short-term measure that would reopen the government until Feb. 8.

NASSAU, Bahamas – Tiger Woods didn’t much want to talk about his round Saturday in the Hero World Challenge. But he fondly spoke to the times he spent with George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States who died Friday. He was 94. Bush was a World War II veteran, an ambassador to China, the CIA director, a vice president – and a golf nut who loved the game and played as much as he could. “He was fantastic to be around. He was just one of the smartest people I've ever been around, and so down to earth,” said Woods, who added he first met Bush when he was a member of the Stanford golf team. “Obviously, his name is synonymous with golf. Being around him for all these years and getting a chance to, you know, be around him at the Presidents Cup and him being involved in it since its inception in ’94, he was such a class act. “Anyone who's ever been around him knows how much he loved his golf and how much he supported it … [Read more...] about Tiger Woods reflects on George H.W.
