The Golf Blog says: President Obama left the White House and moved into his new DC house. A photo shows a mover lugging a Titleist bag with Callaway clubs into the new house. Now President Obama will have more time to play golf, while the incoming President Trump will have less time.Tweet

The Golf Blog says: Adam Hadwin shot a 59 at La Quinta on the same course as David Duval’s 59. Hadwin had a chance for 58, but missed the green on the 18th, so he needed an up-and-down for the 59. No problem. He did. Hadwin’s 59 comes 1 week after Justin Thomas’s 59 at the Sony Open in Hawaii.Tweet
The Most Coveted Golf Ball Is $1.25 and from Costco https://t.co/HyNhb2HkRY

The Golf Blog says: The golf world is abuzz with a cheap golf ball sold by Costco (temporarily) for $29.99 for 2 dozen. A South Korean company Nassau Golf made the golf balls called Kirkland Signature and distributed some excess inventory to Costco. Testing organized by MyGolfSpy showed that the ball apparently competed well with Titleist’s Pro V1, which retails for much more than $29.99 for 2 dozen. Soon, Costco sold out of the Kirkland Signature ball and has removed it from the website. Fans of the ball are waiting with bated breath for when they become available again on Costco.
So are we!Tweet

The Golf Blog says: 23-year-old Justin Thomas is the hottest golfer on the planet. He’s won 3 times already in the wrap-around season, and 2 in a row in Hawaii. Oh, and he shot 59 this week and set the PGA Tour record for low 72 hole score (59-64-65-65). To treat himself, Justin just bought a sweet Range Rover. Congrats, Justin!
Is Justin now the favorite to win the Masters?! Something no one would have asked in 2016. Now it seems like a reasonable question. How things change quickly.
The week started with a 59 …
