From the paper
THE United States President, Barack Obama, has been advised to leave his golf clubs at home when he visits Australia in November.

The White House and Gillard government confirmed yesterday that after two aborted attempts the President will visit on November 16 and 17.
Mr Obama is a keen golfer and was the honorary chairman of the 2009 tournament. Julia Gillard is the chairwoman of this year's event.
