Donald Trump Dares LPGA To Move Women’s British Open From His Course
The LPGA Tour says that it wants to move the Women's British Open from a course that is owned by Donald Trump, but simply doesn't have time to do it. At least that's how I'm reading a statement from LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan, released last week. The statement was sent to the press following Trump's bombastic comments on illegal Mexican immigrants.
So of course Trump is all hurt and outraged, and has fired a letter back to the LPGA, daring them to go ahead and move it from Turnberry in Scotland. He'll even let them out of the contract. Excerpt:
You have an absolutely binding contract to play the great Turnberry Ailsa course but, based on your rude comment to the press, please let this letter serve to represent that, subject to a conversation with me on the details, I would be willing to let you play the Women's British Open, in two weeks, at another course rather than magnificent Turnberry (which I own). I think you have done an extraordinary disservice to women's golf, but in no way will that diminish my respect for the women on the LPGA tour of their great golfing talent.
Obviously, you will have to move quickly!
Trump also wrote:
P.S.: Apparently the American public disagrees with you, as I have just gone to #1 and #2 in the polls.
This makes little sense, as A.) The Ladies Golf Union actually controls where the tournament is played, and although the LGU, too, dislikes Trump's comments, Trump has made no attempt to contact them; B.) The LPGA said that they didn't have time to move it. Letting them out of the contract doesn't magically turn back the clock; C.) "No. 1 in the polls" represents 11 or 12 percent of the pie, split between 20 Republican candidates. You can fit that number of people into one medium-sized room.
But let's face it, this article is just a veiled excuse to post this video, which I can't stop watching:
