Los Angeles Dodgers Co-Owner Mark Walter Sells Lincoln Park Mansion for $4.2 Million Amid Luxury Home Boom in Chicago
Billionaire Mark Walter, CEO of Guggenheim Partners and co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, recently sold his Lincoln Park mansion for a cool $4.2 million, the Chicago Tribune reported. The modern residence, which was never listed on the public market, is overshadowed by Walter's more palatial home—a 26,000-square-foot behemoth that he and his wife Kimbra currently occupy. The couple purchased their former mansion in 2003 for $3.92 million, but after moving into their grander abode, the previous property was deemed surplus to requirements.

Lynch: The nasty hangover from TPC Scottsdale is being felt at Riviera. Is it time to call last orders at the Phoenix Open?
LOS ANGELES — It’s difficult to find more disparate experiences in consecutive weeks on the PGA Tour calendar than the WM Phoenix Open and the Genesis Invitational.

One is viewed by some Tour players with an aversion usually reserved for gas station sushi, the other isn’t. One attracts and engages fans at a level that’s the envy of most tournaments on the schedule, the other doesn’t. One stretchers out more inebriated, vomit-flecked fans than LIV draws in, the other doesn’t.
