From The Washington Post:
The organizers of the PGA Championship canceled plans to hold the event at President Trump’s Bedminster, N.J., golf club in 2022 in the wake of last week’s Trump-inspired riot at the U.S. Capitol.
In a statement that did not directly address the unrest in the nation’s capital, Jim Richerson, PGA of America’s president, said the group’s board voted Sunday night to “exercise the right to terminate the agreement” with Trump’s course.
“It’s become clear that conducting the PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the PGA of America brand and would put at risk the PGA’s ability to deliver our many programs and sustain the longevity of our mission,” Richerson said in a video posted to the organization’s website. “Our board has thus made the decision to exercise our right to terminate the contract to hold the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster.
“It was a decision made to ensure the PGA of America and the PGA professionals can continue to lead and grow our great game for decades to come.”
