    Langer has 2-shot lead at Senior PGA on Trump course

    Shrugging off fatigue from last week's victory, Bernhard Langer shot a 7-under 65 Thursday to take a two-shot lead in the first round of the Senior PGA Championship. The 59-year-old German could break Jack Nicklaus' record of eight senior majors with a win at Trump National. He tied Nicklaus last week with a five-shot victory at the Regions Tradition.

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.
