PGA pulls 2022 PGA Championship from Trump National, citing ‘detrimental’ impact to brand

The 2022 PGA Championship will no longer be held at the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster.

The PGA of America announced Sunday it had terminated its agreement to play the major at the course owned by President Donald Trump. The move came days after supporters of the president stormed the United States Capitol.

“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 America president Jim Richerson said in a statement.

“It has 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 added in a video.

The decision to hold the tournament at the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey was made in 2014.
