Associated Press Published 2:04 p.m. UTC Jul 6, 2018 White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. — Webb Simpson ran out of sensational shots in the end to keep him from joining an elite group. Simpson shot a 9-under-par 61 for a one-stroke lead over Whee Kim after the first round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier in West Virginia on Thursday. Simpson posted his best career score after shaking off a two-hour weather delay with six holes left in his round. He came up short in his bid to shoot the eighth sub-60 round on the PGA Tour. Needing birdies on the par-5 17th and the par-3 18th for a 59, he parred both. “I knew a 59 was in there, but it’s all right,” Simpson said. “Great start. Scores were good though, so you’ve got to keep the pedal down.” Kim had back-to-back bogeys on the front nine on the Old White TPC, and then ran off five birdies over a seven-hole stretch. The South Korean had 10 birdies overall and shot 62. Teenager … [Read more...] about Thursday’s golf: Simpson cards career-low 61 at Greenbrier
Good credit opens up a world you may not have known existed, like Platform 9 3/4 did for Harry Potter.

But credit also makes it disturbingly easy to cover the eight pizzas your roommates decide to order.While independence is your reward for having good credit, not everyone is ready to build it responsibly in college. Know yourself, and choose a method that won't torpedo your goal as soon as you start.WHY YOU NEED CREDIT A quick primer: Your credit score shows lenders, landlords and financial institutions how likely you are to repay a debt or follow through on your commitments.

Published May 10, 2018 Markets Motley Fool Facebook Twitter Comments Print Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is teaming up with investment banking giant Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) to develop and launch a new co-branded credit card next year, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. This would replace the tech giant's current partnership with Barclays (NYSE: BCS), and would be issued under the Apple Pay brand name.
