PGA Championship was set to take place at Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey in 2022, but the PGA of America canceled the deal. The two sides announced on Tuesday that they had struck an agreement.
Despite the agreement’s conclusion, the specifics of the arrangement were not made public.
The PGA of America said in a statement that “the Trump Organization’s contribution to the golf community is appreciated.” “We are grateful that the company employs hundreds of committed PGA Professionals and gives back to the golf community by staging charitable events and sponsoring junior golf initiatives on a regular basis.” Trump Bedminster, as stated when it was first revealed in 2014, “is a major championship-worthy golf course that is part of a portfolio that includes some of the finest private and public golf courses anywhere in the globe.”
“We have great appreciation for the efforts of the PGA,” Executive Vice President Eric Trump said on behalf of The Trump Organization. We’ve had a lot of fun working with the PGA over the years to bring some of the best golf experiences in the world to our club members and the general public. We are excited to continue to support the PGA’s purpose and its Professionals, who are among the best in the golf industry.”
Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma will now host the tournament. On the men’s side, Southern Hills has held seven major championships, the most recent of which was Tiger Woods’ 2007 PGA Championship.
