YESTERDAY'S R&A STATEMENT was brief and blunt:
Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A:

"We had no plans to stage any of our championships at Turnberry and will not do so in the foreseeable future. We will not return until we are convinced that the focus will be on the championship, the players and the course itself and we do not believe that is achievable in the current circumstances."​

Trump acquired the famous Scottish links and resort in 2014.

Turnberry hasn't hosted the Open Championship since 2009. That was when Stewart Cink defeated sentimental favorite Tom Watson in a playoff.​
