What’s With Those Jesus Signs Behind Post-Debate CNN Panel?

Last night, the televised third and last debate was held between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump for the U.S. presidency.

The PGA Tour’s Brenden Steele Redeems Himself at Napa

Yesterday, Brenden Steele won the PGA Tour's first tournament that launched its new season at the Safeway Open. Steele came from four strokes behind starting the last round.
