At a press conference on Tuesday at Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York, Trump issued a challenge to golfers around the world: “I am going to personally give one million dollars to the one golfer who can prove they have the skill and nerve it takes to survive under the most extreme pressure on one of the world’s most demanding courses. Because I’m not going to just give $1 Million away…they’re going to have to take it.”

The 2006 Trump Million Dollar Invitational at Raffles Resort Canouan Island will be held May 21-26, 2006. Participation is open to all professional or amateur golfers 18 years of age or older who are not currently members of the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, Champions Tour, Nationwide Tour or European Tour. As an invitation-only event, a maximum of 100 players will be invited to compete in the 54-hole stroke play tournament; entry fee is $15,000 per player. All entry fees collected will be awarded, creating a $1.5 million dollar prize pool. Players are responsible for all travel, lodging, meals and other expenses associated with their participation in the event.
