    Donald trump He has gone from being the most powerful man on the planet to being an outlaw. The assault on the Capitol, cheered hours earlier by the Republican in an incomprehensible speech, is costing the still president of the United States very dear. And the world of politics is not the only one that has censured Trump’s attitude. The PGA has decided that the 2022 edition of the PGA Championship, one of the four ‘majors’ in the world of golf, will not be played on the Trump Bedminster course, owned by Donald Trump, in response to last week’s assault on the Capitol. “The PGA of America Board of Directors voted to exercise the right to rescind the agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster, “said Jim Richerson, president of the American association through ‘Twitter’. The sport is also losing weight with Trump. And...
    YOU MESSED WITH HIS GOLF??? We have finally found the thing that Donald Trump, a self-obsessed malignant narcissist and traitor, cares about most. It wasn't hundreds of thousands of Americans dead in a pandemic Trump repeatedly claimed was an overhyped plot against him. It was not impeachment. All those things irritated him, but it now looks like Trump's incitement of a violent coup against the nation may cost Trump and his self-named corporation—steel yourself, for this news is grim—a golf tournament. In a statement, PGA of America announced that their board is terminating an agreement to hold the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump's Bedminster, New Jersey golf resort, declaring that it "would be detrimental to the PGA of America brand." You know, to be associated with a man who for months has been attempting to goad his followers into overthrowing the republic to reappoint him unelected god-king. Yeah, seems like...
    OPEN organisers have confirmed Donald Trump can forget about hosting their event at Turnberry, after he was stripped of the right to stage next year’s USPGA Championship. USPGA bosses announced the Trump Bedminster course in New Jersey had been axed as the 2022 tournament venue after the President was accused of inciting a mob to break into Capitol Hill last week. 2Donald Trump's Turnberry course will not host The OpenCredit: PA:Press Association 2Trump paid £200million for the beautiful Scottish courseCredit: Getty - Contributor Five people died after a pro-Trump rabble broke into the government buildings and caused mayhem in the halls of Congress. The USPGA’s decisive action shifted the pressure onto the R&A – Turnberry has not hosted an Open since 2009, but it remains on the tournament rota. And Trump has been pushing hard for another Open after splashing out £200million to buy the course and give it a...
    There are no plans to hold any professional golf championships at President Trump’s course in Scotland, The R&A said in a statement Monday. Trump Turnberry is located in Firth of Clyde in Ayrshire, Scotland, and has been operated by the Trump Organization since 2014. The golf course has hosted The Open Championship four times, The Senior Open seven times and the Women’s British Open twice.

We will not return until we are convinced that the focus will be on the championship, the players and the course itself and we do not believe that is achievable in the...

Losing the PGA is not the first time that Trump's words and actions have cost him the chance of hosting a major at one of his properties — something he desired for many years. In 2015, when Trump was still just a presidential hopeful, his Scottish course Trump Turnberry, lost the chance to host The Open Championship after his now-infamous comments about Mexican people. Trump later reportedly pressured US ambassador Woody Johnson to lobby the British government to host the Open at Turnberry. Those...
    The 2022 PGA Championship will no longer be held at Trump Bedminster in New Jersey, PGA of America announced Sunday night as fury at President Trump over the U.S. Capitol riot grows.

     Donald Trump's Bedminster golf course likely will be stripped of a major tournament on the 2022 PGA Tour calendar in the latest fallout from Wednesday's Capitol riot.  The decision to take away the 2022 PGA Championship - one of the sport's major tournaments - hasn't been announced yet. But Eamon Lynch of Golfweek believes the decision will likely come after Trump is out of office, though. 'The odds that ’22’s PGA Championship will happen as scheduled in New Jersey are about as good as the chances of you or I winning it,' Lynch wrote on Saturday, clearly tongue-in-cheek.

Through the end of the year, our staff is looking back on what will forever stand out from the season of COVID – a season during which every aspect of the game we love was impacted by a global pandemic. © File photo The Masters 2020 They remain haunting reminders of a year we’d like to forget.

    (CNN)Without the adrenaline that comes from playing in front of fans, athletes have had to find other ways to motivate themselves during 2020. Some have turned to their faith without supporters to urge them on. Others have relied on individual strategies, such as artificially generating their own emotions, to get themselves pumped up for the big stage. For Kim Sei-Young, on a deserted Aronimink Golf Club course in Philadelphia in October, with nothing but the trees and the wind to keep her company, she found motivation in a more rhythmic source. The catchy tones of "Dynamite" by her compatriots and super boy band BTS provided an inspirational tune for Kim as she dominated the Women's PGA Championship, eventually securing the first major win of her career by five shots. For someone who had previously had a reputation for being very successful on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour without...
    Even in a year cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no shortage of memorable shots that helped shaped a year like no other on the PGA Tour. A big drive gave Collin Morikawa his first major. A big putt gave Viktor Hovland his first win. And a big iron — in Bryson DeChambeau’s case, a really big iron — allowed players to consider an unconventional approach to the game. What follows are shots from every club in the bag — a few more than 14, so think of it as Arnold Palmer’s bag when he played the shootout at Bay Hill — to review 2020 on the PGA Tour. DRIVER Morikawa never planned to drive the green on the par-4 16th at Harding Park during the practice rounds for the PGA Championship. Tied for the lead on Sunday, it was his best play on the 294-yard hole and...

Woods has just one top-10 finish on the PGA Tour in the last 12 months, a tie for ninth at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in January, a tournament played so long ago that there were actually fans there. His best finish since the restart in June was a lackluster tie for 37th at the PGA Championship. He’s played just twice since August, missing the cut at the U.S. Open and finishing 72nd at the Zozo Championship, beating only three players at a course, Sherwood Country Club, where he had won five times before. But if Woods proved anything on that April afternoon a year ago, it’s that he should never be counted out — especially at a place like Augusta National that he knows so well....

    Most of the top players are going to skip the next two PGA events prior to the Masters. In fact, defending champion Brendon Todd is the only player in this week’s Bermuda Championship field who played last weekend at the Zozo Championship. Todd is 14/1 at BetMGM to defend his Bermuda title, second choice to Will Zalatoris (11/1). Zalatoris was the favorite a few weeks ago in the Dominican Republic and finished T-8. Zalatoris is favored to win a PGA Tour event for the second time despite not being a member of said tour. He won earlier this summer on the Korn Ferry Tour and finished in the top 10 in eight of 11 events on the KFT since the restart this summer. Add a T-6 finish in his first major at the U.S. Open.

    MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — Another week, another big trophy for Dustin Johnson, this one without any cash. One week after he captured the FedEx Cup and its $15 million prize, Johnson was voted PGA Tour player of the year for the second time in the last five years. He also won the Jack Nicklaus Award, which comes with a bronze of Nicklaus famously raising his putter, in 2016. Johnson joins Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Nick Price and Fred Couples as the only players to win the award multiple times since it began in 1990. Johnson was on the ballot with Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, PGA champion Collin Morikawa and Webb Simpson. The tour historically does not release the tally of players who voted. It was the second straight year the award went to someone who did not win a major during the season. In this year of the COVID-19 pandemic,...

    (CNN)Tiger Woods looked to be in a spot of bother ahead of the first round of The Northern Trust in Massachusetts Thursday, but it was nothing a cold bottle of water couldn't fix.

    (CBS San Francisco)- This week’s PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park will look different than any major that we’ve seen before. No fans will be in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic and the golfer’s take on a Harding Park course that presents a variety of different challenges.

    PGA Championship winner Collin Morikawa, like many of the top players, will return next week for the opening event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs at The Northern Trust. However, there are several top 30 players in Greensboro, N.C., this week for Wyndham Championship.

    SAN FRANCISCO — One of the greatest shots in golf’s major championship history happened in front of 100 people, at most. And standing 10 feet away from Colin Morikawa as his 293-yard tee shot at the par-4 16th landed seven feet from the hole, I had no idea it was as good as it was. Sure, there was a smattering of cheers from the green, but who knows what that meant. So I looked to Morikawa, who gave a quiet fist bump to his caddie, J.J. Jakovac, flashed a quick smile, and started thinking about his eagle putt. He’d sink it a few moments later, giving him a two-shot lead that he would not relent on the final two holes to win the 2020 PGA Championship.

    Tiger Woods arrives at the PGA Championship this week in search of a 16th major win, a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour event victory and, perhaps, a shot at redemption. The last time Tiger played in the PGA Championship, he failed to make the cut after shooting rounds of 72 and 73, respectively, at Bethpage State Park in May 2019. It was an especially painful outing, considering it was his first event after winning The Masters. Which begs the question: How will he fare this week, over a year removed from his last major and with only five PGA Tour events under his belt this season? Tiger’s 2020 campaign has been a mixed bag. It started with a win at the ZOZO Championship in October — followed by top-10 finishes in the Hero World Challenge and Farmers Insurance Open — before disappointing outings at The Genesis Invitational and Memorial Tournament....
    SAN FRANCISCO — The sun was nowhere to be found at Harding Park, but the comment came through as clear as day. “Man, it’s cold out here,” I overhead — well, excluding one adjective — while walking past the practice green. The PGA Championship being played in August is nothing new. Playing it in weather like San Francisco’s this time of year is. Before 2019, this weekend was the traditional time for the least glamorous of golf’s four major tournaments. Two years ago, many of the same players in San Francisco now trudged through triple-digit temperatures and humidity percentages in St. Louis. But on Wednesday afternoon, the temperature was 57 degrees with 85 percent humidity. But you know that when you’re in it, that’s the coldest environment on earth. It isn’t expected to warm up on Thursday through Sunday, either. And this Harding Park is nothing like the one I...

Well, maybe in the non-Tiger Woods category. Though if Tiger somehow sidesteps all of the obstacles (the cold and damp weather, competitive rust, punitive rough, etc.) and gets a late-Sunday tee time, the numbers could be better than any sporting event that doesn’t have Roman numerals after its name. © Provided by Golfweek Ken Willis writes for the Daytona Beach News-Journal, part of the USA Today Network.

    Tiger Woods appears to have something new in store for this PGA Championship: his putter. Woods has won all but one of his 15 majors with a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS, the putter he borrowed from Mark O’Meara in 1998 and never returned. The only other time he switched at a major was at St. Andrews in 2010, when he used a Nike Method. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Woods has experimented with other putters since then, such as a TaylorMade variety in 2018 before going back to his regular putter at the Tour Championship, which he won. This week he has been working with a putter just like his Cameron Newport but with adjustable weights in the sole to adjust to green speeds. Golf Channel reported it would be in the bag Thursday, and Woods used it during a practice round Wednesday with Steve Stricker...
    It may not be quite what we are used to, but major golf is finally back as Brooks Koepka defends his PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in California this week. The global coronavirus pandemic wiped out The Open Championship for 2020, while each of the other three majors had to be rescheduled. A three-month enforced break of the PGA Tour perhaps came at an opportune moment for some while halting the momentum of others. As golf gears up for its first major of 2020, behind closed doors of course, we take a look at the players we expect to be competing in California. PGA CHAMPIONSHIP: Odds, betting favorite, expert picks Webb Simpson It has been some return to form over the past couple of years for the 2012 U.S. Open victor, who slipped as low as 90th in the rankings following the 2016 Wells Fargo Championship before his triumph at...
    For only the sixth time this season, we get to watch Tiger Woods play golf — and what better place to resume than the season’s first major? Woods, ranked 15th in the world, will seek to win his fifth PGA Championship this week after victories in 1999, 2000 and 2006-07. It not only would be his fifth win in this major (matching his wins total for the Masters) but also would give him a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour event win. Woods has only played in five PGA Tour tournaments this season — not including The Match, alongside Peyton Manning — and produced mixed results. He started the season off with a win in the ZOZO Championship, followed by top-10 finishes in the Hero World Challenge and Farmers Insurance Open. But he finished 68th and 40th, respectively, in The Genesis Invitational and last month’s Memorial Tournament. That said, Woods has...

    Winning continues to be a lucrative affair at the PGA Championship in 2020. This year’s tournament will continue to feature an uber-profitable purse, which should be of particular interest to Brooks Koepka, winner of the last two PGA Championships. If he is able to win an unprecedented third-straight PGA Championship, he stands to make nearly $2 million for the third year in a row at the PGA Championship. Even those golfers who can’t sniff a first-place finish stand to make decent money this week — so long as they make the cut — with the clear-cut last-place finisher making nearly $20,000.

    It may have come a few months late, and in an order we’re not used to, but golf is finally ready to experience its first major championship event of the season. The 2020 PGA Championship takes place Thursday through Sunday, nearly three months after its original date of mid-May. The move, of course, was necessary as the sports world scrambled to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic. That said, it’s likely the change in date may confuse casual golf fans, especially considering it was traditionally played in August as the fourth and final major of the season before moving to May in 2019. The same could likely be said for the remainder of golf’s four major events, all of which postponed their events — one much, much longer than the others. With that, here’s a reminder of when each of golf’s major events will take place this year, as well...
