The Women’s Open Deserves Better Than to Be Trumped by Donald

The British Women’s Open is in danger of being overshadowed by Donald Trump’s travelling circus. Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican Presidential nomination, lives firmly by the mantra of no such thing as bad publicity, which is not the case in this instance.
The golfing world’s reaction to Trump’s offensive June comments about Mexican migrants to the United States – describing many of them as criminals, drug dealers and rapists – has been intriguing. This weekend he will be impossible to ignore; he owns the Turnberry resort and will arrive in Scotland on Thursday for the start of the third major of the women’s season. When questioned, it won’t be about Michelle Wie’s putting stance.
