Donald Trump risked becoming the first American president to be deposed twice, guaranteeing him a special place of infamy in the history of our country for having incited a deadly insurgency on the United States Capitol.

"We had no plans to stage any of our championships at Turnberry and will not do so in the foreseeable future". "We will not return until we are convinced that the focus will be on the championship, the players and the course itself and we do not believe that is achievable in the current circumstances". The Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, had previously hosted the US Women's Open as part of the LPGA tour in 2017.

PGA of America President Jim Richerson announced on Sunday night that the organization's board of directors had voted to end an agreement to hold the 2022 PGA Championship at President Donald Trump's golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey. However, now after the club pulled out of the event's venue, the deccision is being labelled as "politically motivated" by Trump's aids and supporters. "It was a decision made to ensure that PGA of America and that PGA professionals continue to lead and grow our great game for decades to come". "This is the only right decision".
These moves are an effort for major golf organizations and tournaments to distance themselves from Trump. As recently as 1990, the Shoal Creek Club nearly suffered the same fate when club president Hall Thompson said black golfers playing on his course was "just not done in Birmingham".
