15 Don­ald Trump

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - SCENE -

PRES­I­DENT, THE UNITED STATES

Na­tion­al­ity: Amer­i­can

Un­der the spot­light: The pres­i­dent’s port­fo­lio of 17 high-end coun­try clubs around the world will be in the news more than ever fol­low­ing his in­au­gu­ra­tion. Most in­ter­est­ing will be the re­sponse of the golf world. Trump’s strat­egy is to use the ma­jors as a sales card for his cour­ses: he re­mains hope­ful of Turn­berry host­ing its fifth Open Cham­pi­onship while the Trump Na­tional Bed­min­ster in New Jersey hosts the 2022 US PGA and his Ferry Point course in New York City is in the run­ning for a US Open. The fu­ture? Per­haps an in­di­ca­tor of how things are go­ing to go came from Jay Mon­a­han, the new PGA Tour com­mis­sioner, who de­scribed hav­ing Trump in the White House as ‘awe­some’.
