The P.G.A. of America, which conducts the P.G.A. Championship — one of golf’s four prestigious global major men’s championships — announced Sunday night that it would no longer hold its featured event at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. It had been scheduled to be played there in May 2022.
“It has become clear that conducting the P.G.A. Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the P.G.A. of America brand, and would put at risk the P.G.A.’s ability to deliver our many programs, and sustain the longevity of our mission,” Jim Richerson, the P.G.A. of America president, said in a video statement.
The Trump Organization responded Sunday, saying: “We have had a beautiful partnership with the P.G.A. of America and are incredibly disappointed with their decision. This is a breach of a binding contract, and they have no right to terminate the agreement.”
