    Donald Trump Says PGA Tour Will Move WGC Event From Doral to Mexico City

    The PGA Tour is moving a long-running World Golf Championships event from Trump National Doral to Mexico City.Donald Trump might be winning delegates, but he's losing a prestigious tournament.

    The Republican presidential frontrunner told Fox News's Sean Hannity on Tuesday that the PGA Tour is moving its annual WGC-Cadillac Championship from Trump-owned Doral in Miami to a course outside Mexico City, ending a 53-year partnership with the resort.

    The Donald sounded characteristically ambivalent about the breakup.

    "They're moving it to Mexico City which, by the way, I hope they have kidnapping insurance," Trump said.

    The PGA is all about money, I'm sure there is a huge sponsor somewhere in Mexico footing the bill.

    Does Trump actually own Doral or it just another property they pay him to put his name on for publicity?

    Trump buys Doral Resort for $150 million, plans 18-month renovation

    By PGA.com news services
    Published: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 | 3:29 a.m.

    Donald Trump's bid to buy the Doral Resort & Spa out of bankruptcy for $150 million was approved on Monday, the Trump Organization announced.

    The 800-acre resort complex -- which is set to host the 2012 edition of the WGC-Cadillac Championship next week -- includes four golf courses; 700 hotel rooms across 10 lodges; more than 86,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 25,000-square-foot ballroom; a 50,000-square-foot spa with 33 treatment rooms; six food and beverage outlets; extensive retail; and a private members' clubhouse.

    The Trump Organization plans to spend another $150 million to renovate the facilities "with the intention of restoring Doral to its former grandeur" during an 18-month refurbishment, Trump officials said in a statement. The property will stay open throughout the renovation, which is expected to conclude in the fall of 2013.

    "When Doral first opened, it was considered the best resort in the world," said Donald Trump. "The combination of the property's incredible location in the heart of Miami and our very significant investment in upgrading the resort will enable us to return Doral to its former glory if not surpass it. When completed, Doral will be the finest resort and golf club in the country."

    No pro is gonna go to Mexico for a golf tournament. Doral is part of the Florida loop, lately even Doral has floundered to consistently get good golfers to attend. So I don't see Speith or Fowler flying to Mexico for a B level event.

    Dumb move, plus people love controversary so why not keep it there. What if he becomes president then it's his tournament. Think of all the outrage, you think Augusta was controversial.

    Very true. Corporate executives typically go with armed security and armored cards. Kidnapping executives, even low level, is big business.
    He's actually 100% right.

    The boys at Augusta were pretty successful in telling the PGA to go fuck themselves. I doubt Trump will have much trouble doing the same.

    As is usually the case when these SJW cunts go into hysterics, the only ones who will really be hurt by this are the local charities that depend on these tournaments.
