Daily Mail Reporter could only focus on the fact his hair is real (duh!), offering this headline: "Not a toupee! Donald Trump gets windblown in Scotland... and his hair stays ON"
The Donald has revealed he’s going with Trump Turnberry for the name of his latest purchase (stunner!) and that it needs his touch. And Peter Dawson's.
Michael McEwan has all the details at Bunkered (thanks reader Bobby), which include carrying out the R&A dream of redesigning the 10th and 11th holes. The Donald wants to re-work the par-3 9th and turn the Turnberrty lighthouse into the ultimate halfway house, too.
Trump also added that the R&A’s chief executive Peter Dawson had recommended he work with renowned golf course architect Martin Ebert on proposed changes to the course. Ebert previously tweaked the Ailsa Course ahead of the 2009 Open and also worked on preparing Royal St George’s and Royal Lytham & St Anne’s for the 2011 and 2012 Open Championships respectively.
Subject to planning consent and the approval of the R&A, the tenth and 11th holes on the Ailsa Course will be the first to change.
The championship tee on the tenth will be moved further back and to the left from its current position – almost to the lighthouse – creating a much more dramatic and daunting tee shot, which will have a carry of over 260 yards to the fairway.
What could wrong with that?
**Ewan Murray in The Guardian on Trump's Turnberry plans, including this from the new purveyor:
“These [course] changes have been proposed for 40 years. They are things that everyone wants to do. These are things that people have wanted for 35-40 years but the venue went through various ownerships and people never did it. We will do it and it will be spectacular. But I stress I will do it all in conjunction with the R&A, I will accept their recommendations and go through various stages of approval.
“I am a golfer, I understand golf. I think I have the greatest collection of courses owned by one person. And this one could be at the top of them all.
