Because Donald Trump really needed another reason for us to roll our eyes at him.

He landed his helicopter at the newly-renovated Trump National -- a renovation that apparently cost a quarter of a billion dollars (Geoff Shackelford has a few details on what, exactly, took place).

Brad Klein of GolfWeek sums up what it means.

"The glitz and glam all kick off Thursday morning. There will be press conferences, speeches, talk of it being the best resort in the world, and a sense of relief and amazement that the course got done in time. For the moment, no one will talk about the green fee - $399 for resort guests, $450 for the outside play – plus (fore)caddie.

"For now it's just a golf party to celebrate a dramatic transformation."

The PGA Tour will return to Doral for the Cadillac Championship at the beginning of March.
