ROUND ONE TO THE DON.

DONALD Trump had to get the blow-dryers out yesterday as rain threatened to spoil the grand opening of his pounds 170million Great Dunes of Scotland golf course.

The industrial wind machines weren't to contain his infamous combover thatch, however. Instead, they ensured his well-manicured course was in top condition for his star guest, Ryder Cup hero Colin Montgomerie, above right.

The damp, dreich day - with no wind to speak of - meant the US tycoon had no trouble keeping his bouffant barnet under control.

Trump didn't let Scotland's soggy summer, a glaring lack of celebrity guests or even a duffed tee-shot at the first hole rain on his parade.

And the course, near Aberdeen, won a ringing endorsement from bosses of the sport's powerful European Tour - suggesting that Trump may not have to wait too long to host a major tournament such as the Scottish Open.
