Golf: PGA withdraws Trump Major tournament for storming the Capitol

Dhe organization of the outgoing US President Donald Trump loses the host rights for one of the most important golf tournaments in the world as a result of the riots in the Capitol. The PGA Championship, one of the four majors, will not take place on Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, as planned for 2022.

Donald Trump owns a total of 19 golf courses around the world. He puts his handicap at 2.8, but he is supposed to cheat while playing

The host PGA of America justified the decision on Sunday with the storming of the US parliament on Wednesday, when supporters of Trump were incited by their president broke into the building. An alternative venue is now being sought, it said. A spokesman for the Trump organization told ABC News that it was an illegal “breach of contract”.

The Trump organization is primarily active in the real estate sector and operates, among other things, hotels and golf courses such as those in Bedminster. After his election victory in 2016, Donald Trump handed over the management of the corporate conglomerate to his sons Eric and Donald Junior. But he remained the owner, although he had promised to “isolate himself completely” from his business.
