The PGA of America ended its relationship with President Donald Trump on Sunday night when its membership voted to move the 2022 PGA Championship from its planned host site of Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey.

Trump Bedminster had been the scheduled host for the event in May 2022 for several years, but PGA of America president Jim Richerson spoke out this weekend following the President’s incitement of violence ahead of an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.

“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,” said Richerson. “Our board has thus made the decision to exercise to terminate the contract to hold the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster. It was a decision made to ensure that the PGA of America and PGA professionals can continue to lead and grow our game for decades to come.”

There is no replacement yet for the 2022 PGA Championship. This year’s event will be held at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina.
