Days after Trump’s name and image were torn off a wall and billboard outside his Akoya golf property, the Republican presidential hopeful’s trademark gold letters were back in place Sunday, according to a Reuters report.
The removal of Trump’s branding from the golf course followed his controversial campaign trail proposal to bar all Muslim immigrants from entering the United States and proved just a small part of an ongoing global backlash.
On Friday, the PGA Tour told GOLF.com it would consider moving it’s WGC-Cadillac Championship from Trump-owned Doral immediately following the conclusion of the 2016 tournament.
Then, on Sunday, the Independent reported that Trump Turnberry in Scotland would be removed from the British Open rota, further complicating Trump’s status in the golf world.
