As part of a new impeachment process, the President of the game is ousted for the ousted President.

On Sunday, the PGA of America (Professional Golf Tour) decided not to host the 2022 Championship at Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey. “Our brand was at stake”, Seth Waugh, general manager of the organizing body of the Grand Slam tournament, told. This course was chosen by the PGA of America in 2014. Hence more downward support for political and commercial reasons than for political reasons.

This is not the first time that American golf officials have distanced themselves from Trump.

In 2015, the American Federation canceled the PGA Grand Slam at Trump National after making derogatory remarks about Mexican immigrants. And in 2016, the PGA Tour decided to move a leg of the 2017 WGC Championship to Mexico, instead of the Trump-owned Doral Club in Miami.

On Monday, R&A, the governing body of world golf, announced that the Trump Turnberry Complex in Scotland, where the British Open has already been held several times, would no longer host the Majors. Turnberry and Bedminster feature in a list of 17 courses owned by Trump worldwide.

You can like, dislike his personality or his politics, but we should respect the office.” Defended Woods in 2018; A year later, he was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Trump.

McIlroy, who played with the billionaire in 2017, said he “probably won’t do it again”. “It’s a very happy day. He’s charismatic and has been good to everybody … but that doesn’t mean I agree with everything he says.”

Trump still has supporters, including veteran Jack Nicklaus, winner of 18 Majors, who voted Republican candidate.

Last Thursday, following the events in Washington, Trump presented two former champions, Sweden’s Annika Sorenstam, with other medals of freedom, which also supported her candidacy and South African Gary Player. He was immediately criticized for agreeing to be so honored.
