White House The golf-loving president may be at his most natural and carefree on the links, with an array of politicians, celebrities and family members. In June of 2017, Bob Corker extended a golf-club shaped olive branch to an angry President Donald Trump. Corker, then a Tennessee Republican senator, had recently enraged Trump by saying his administration was in a “downward spiral.” Hoping to de-escalate, his aides asked the White House to broker a peacemaking meeting between the men in one of Trump’s most natural habitats: the golf course. Story Continued Below An outing was soon arranged at Trump’s northern Virginia course, where the pair were joined on a warm Sunday by the former star NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and Andrew Giuliani, a public liaison assistant at the White House and the son of Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

By Alexandra Bruell WSJ Thu., March 28, 2019 Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, known for programming like “Friends,” “This Is Us” and the “Real Housewives” franchise, wants to sell you golf socks and polos. The company plans to introduce e-commerce marketplaces, seeking a new revenue stream from brands that aren’t necessarily buying costly national TV ads.

“Bond King” Bill Gross is saying goodbye to Wall Street. Gross, 74, is retiring from the financial industry he worked in for more than 40 years, according to a February 4 announcement. In 1971, Gross co-founded Pimco, where he served as the firm’s managing director and chief investment officer. In 2014, he joined global asset management firm Janus Henderson.
