Trump confident DDF Irish Open will go to Doonbeg

Repulican nominee believes the European Tour will bring event to Co. Clare

US presidential hopeful Donald Trump is confident the European Tour will take the DDF Irish Open to his Doonbeg links.

The American also insists golf’s governing bodies are keen to do business with him because he is now “the front runner” for the Republican nomination despite his recent controversial comments on everything from Mexicans, women and the war on terror.

“My relationship is very good (with golf governing bodies) and I’m also the front runner,” Trump said. “You know being the front runner, people like you more than they would if I was number twelve.  I don’t know if that’s changed it but I am the number one contender and I’m not only the number one, I’m number one by a lot.  

“But my relationship with the different bodies, I think it has been terrific.”

As for Doonbeg, which is now called Trump International Golf Links, Trump sounded delighted with the progress that’s been made with renovations to the course as well as the changes that are being carried out to Open venue Turnberry.

“Turnberry is coming along fine and will be open again for play in June while Doonbeg is doing very well, so much so they want to bring the Irish Open there.”
