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 of the event since 2014, 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.
