A week after the LPGA released a statement saying it was too late to move next month's Women's British Open from the Donald Trump-owned Trump Turnberry in Scotland, the Republican presidential candidate has fired back in an sardonic letter.
In the letter, which was sent to LPGA commissioner Michael Whan and subsequently obtained by a number of golf media outlets, Trump essentially dares the LPGA to move the event.
"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)," he wrote. "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!" he adds Source: Business Insider
