What Steve Bannon Wants You to Read. The first weeks of the Trump presidency have brought as much focus on the White House’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, as on the new president himself. But if Bannon has been the driving force behind the frenzy of activity in the White House, less attention has been paid to the network of political philosophers who have shaped his thinking and who now enjoy a direct line to the White House. They are not mainstream thinkers, but their writings help to explain the commotion that has defined the Trump administration’s early days.

They include a Lebanese-American author known for his theories about hard-to-predict events; an obscure Silicon Valley computer scientist whose online political tracts herald a “Dark Enlightenment”; and a former Wall Street executive who urged Donald Trump’s election in anonymous manifestos by likening the trajectory of the country to that of a hijacked airplane—and who now works for the National Security Council.

Destination Golf Ireland 2017 * 15th PGA Teaching & Coaching Summit finale. ORLANDO, Fla. – How do you engage PGA Professionals with their students? Perhaps it’s as easy as an eye in the sky. PGA Professional Dave Phillips of Rancho Santa Fe, California, who is unabashedly bullish in exploring technological advances in golf, executed a historic move Monday in the final day of the 15th PGA Teaching & Coaching Summit.

Phillips flew the first drone in the PGA’s largest educational forum, an event that attracted nearly 800 attendees. There were representatives from 12 countries. “I’m happy to know it was a first, and I have been using the drone for a few years,” said Phillips, co-founder of the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) in Oceanside, California, and one of Golf Digest’s Top 50 Teachers in America. “It’s one way to keep up with what is happening on the course, at the practice range; to stop and catch the attention of juniors, or just experimenting as you learn more about its capabilities.” The day opened with a rousing presentation by Dr. Forbes Welcome.

During the nineteenth century the Republic of Ireland, or Éire, was part of the United Kingdom and records state that British troops brought golf to the Emerald Isle in the 1850s. The oldest golf course in the Republic of Ireland is set on the heathland of the Curragh in County Kildare and there are records of a match being played there in 1852.

The Curragh Golf Club however, was not founded until 1883, two years after the formation of Royal Belfast (1881) and two years prior to the formation of Royal Dublin (1885). In 2013, the Curragh's historian established that the club was founded in 1858 and so, when substantiated, will formalise the Curragh as Ireland's oldest club. Undoubtedly golf in Ireland dates back way beyond the nineteenth century but records are scant. Ten Underrated Places to Visit in Europe - The Abroad Guide.
