Last year was an exciting year in the annals of golf. Success of the Rio Olympics, disruptive rulings

in major championships, a thrilling Ryder Cup and the death of the King, Arnold Palmer, were just

a few of the top news stories from the year.

Here is a listing of our top golf related news items for the year.

Donald Trump Becomes President

The top Golf Story of the Year has to feature

President-elect Donald Trump. The golf

establishment, as well as, the Republican

Party deserted him, the Democrats regaled

him, plus he beat every poll and pundit to

win the Presidential election in November.

For ten years, when golf was struggling,

Trump hosted events, twisted sponsors

arms and brought millions to professional

golf. He spent $260 million to renovate

the iconic Blue Monster, Doral in Miami

and helped to keep the WGC-Cadillac

Championship in the southern Florida area.

He owns golf properties around the world

including, hisoric Turnberry in Scotland.

When his campaign rhetoric about illegal

immigration sent the media into a frenzy,

the ruling bodies of golf all considered

moving or did move tournaments scheduled

for Trump courses.

By winning the election, Trump may now

have the last laugh, when the PGA of

America, PGA Tour, The R&A, the USGA

and the LPGA Tour are forced to come

crawling back to Trump golf courses.
