    GMac (66) chose D&D over Wentworth for right reasons

Colonial is, after all, a perfect fit for McDowell’s game, particularly on days like Thursday when the winds whipped from all points on the compass, but for the Northern Irishman it’s always been a question of timing.

Prez 44 was celebrating and grinning Friday all over Scotland's St Andrews Golf Club ... birthplace of the sport he's apparently trying to turn pro in now. Based on his face, we'd say Barack was killing it on the Old Course. He's made a point of hitting the links almost everywhere he's been since leaving office -- starting in Palm Springs and most recently in Italy. Gotta say ... no one in history's done retirement better. Just to run down his passport stamps since January: Virgin Islands, French Polynesia, Italy, Germany, Scotland. PLUS the reported $60 mil he and
