MAJOR BATTLES FOR TURNBERRY BILLIONAIRE Donald Trump says he doesn’t think his comments about illegal immigration will cost his Turnberry course the chance to host majors. US Presidential candidate Trump stirred up plenty of controversy when he said that some Mexican immigrants bring crime and drugs into the United States. While R&A chief executive Peter Dawson said there had been no decision about whether Turnberry would be allowed to host another Open Championship, Trump said he was unconcerned. “It doesn’t matter to me. I have to do what’s right,” he said. “There’s probably not going to be a problem with that.” ______ ______ ______ ______ ______ __ PGA TOUR'S 2016 SCHEDULE SHAKE-UP GOLF’S inclusion in the Rio Olympics is continuing to make waves, with the PGA Tour’s 2015-16 schedule changed significantly. The John Deere Classic is the big loser from the revamped schedule, with its dates shifted from the week before the Open Championship to the week of the Olympic men’s event, which will feature 60 players, with many of the sport’s biggest names expected to compete. Among the other changes, last week’s Quicken Loans National will be played a month earlier in late June, a week after the US Open, and will be followed by the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. “It’s important from a worldwide standpoint, and I think it’s important to the game of golf that we work around the Olympics because it’s only once every four years,” Tour player director Jason Bohn said. ____ ______ ______ ______ ______ ____ HAPPY ENDING TO BIZARRE HURLEY CASE THERE was a bizarre but happy end to the story of PGA Tour player Billy Hurley III’s father going missing a fortnight ago. Hurley made a public emotional plea in a bid to find his father Willard Hurley, who hadn’t been seen for some time, while preparing to play at the Quicken Loans National. Willard Hurley was located in Texas during his son’s second round, and was reportedly found while watching the event on a laptop in a public library. Police said he told them he was “simply travelling” and “did not wish to reveal the reasons behind his departure. Either way, Hurley was just happy his old man was safe. “I just want to say thank you. We couldn’t have done this, he wouldn’t have been found without the help of the PGA Tour and the Golf Channel and the greater golf media and all the articles, all the TV spots that were run,” he said.
