Trump National Golf Club Bedminster is a property owned by the Trump Organization, which was headed by Donald Trump until he became president. He would golf there at points during his presidency.
“The PGA of America Board of Directors voted tonight to exercise the right to terminate the agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster,” PGA of American President Jim Richerson said in a brief statement.
Richerson added in a video it would be a “detriment to PGA of America brand” to have the tournament at the Trump property.
The president has drawn fierce criticism and threats of a second impeachment after a mob of pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. The president was also booted from several social media websites as a result of online rhetoric and fear of inciting violence.
The PGA taking away one of the Tour’s top majors was the latest shot to the president.
Collin Morikawa won the 2020 event in San Francisco. The 2021 event will be played at Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
