PGA of America tournaments will make their way to more Donald Trump golf courses in the future.
The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the PGA will remain using golf courses owned by the Republican presidential contender. The organization’s CEO Pete Bevacqua said that politics aside, it will continue to use Trump golf courses, including for the Senior PGA Championship in 2017 and for the PGA Championship in Bedminster, New Jersey in 2022.
In July, the PGA did move one golf event, the PGA Grand Slam of Golf Tournament, from Trump’s Los Angeles golf club. “The parties mutually agreed that it is in the best interest of all not to conduct the 2015 PGA Grand Slam of Golf at Trump National — Los Angeles,” according to a statement issued.
That move came due to controversial remarks made by Trump about Mexicans during earlier in the summer.
The news comes as the PGA Championship, which is expected to earn Wisconsin $100 million after the final round is finished, starts tomorrow. It’s not, however, taking place at a golf course owned by Trump.
