Breaking: PGA Announces Official Decision On Trump National

Earlier today, Golfweek's Eamon Lynch speculated that the PGA of America was on the verge of moving a major tournament scheduled to be held at one of President Trump's golf courses.

The 2022 PGA Championship was scheduled to be hosted by Trump National Bedminster golf club in New Jersey. Lynch was hearing that the tournament will be moved after what happened at the U.S. Capitol this week.

Golfweek's Eamon Lynch explained what will likely happen in his latest column:

"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. Seth Waugh, the PGA of America's CEO, was a banker and has an alert eye for high-risk exposure. He knows that Trumpism is likely to be an equally incendiary force in the '22 midterm elections and that any affiliation is poisonous. Waugh will be forced to move the event and face down a small but vocal faction of his membership who remain true believers. Moving its major from Trump National has been debated internally at the PGA for more than two years, but executives have been reluctant to antagonize a famously vindictive man who controls the Internal Revenue Service. Such concerns melt away in 10 days, if not sooner," he wrote.

The move is now official. The PGA of America announced the decision on Sunday night.

"The PGA of America Board of Directors voted tonight to exercise the right to terminate the agreement to play the 2022 PGA Championship at Trump Bedminster," PGA of America president Jim Richerson announced.

The PGA Championship is one of four major tournaments played every year. It will have a new home in 2022, though.

And allegedly Trump has a lot of creditors.  It's the Russian ones that should keep him awake at night and worried if their is ( something ) on the doorknobs.

He's been stiffing people/small businesses/corporations/banks for years and hasn't given a flying fart about it.  But Russia might give him cause for pause.

I think this is a good example of what might be called Democratic Capitalism. People tend to think of voting at the ballot box, but they actually vote much more than that. Nearly every day, in fact. They vote with their dollars. According to the post, the PGA has voted against Trump not simply concerning the prestige of hosting the event, but at least as important, economically. This is likely to have a significant financial impact on Trump and it was caused by a single voter in the form of the PGA. 

Not every dollar spent is a vote for something. You've got to pay your electricity bill for instance, but others are votes. If a company employs sweatshop labor overseas and you know it, whether or not you buy their product is an actual vote for or against the practice, or at least whether you care about the issue enough for the issue to register with you morally. 

Of course, the PGA may be doing this to protect itself politically rather than any effort to condemn Trump but, still, it shows the power of the dollar as a voting mechanism. Every time to donate to a charity or a cause, you're voting. Every time you don't buy something you'd like to have because of (some reason) you're making a vote. 

Just something to consider.

There would have been, but Trump locked Mike Pence out of the WH weeks ago.

A good indication of what is to come for Trump.   I suspect he has no idea the personal costs (not just monetary) this national 'election fraud' con (and related failures) will take on him.

What sucks is that he will never, repeat never, take responsibility for his shitty shenanigans.  But hopefully, some of the people whose lives he has ruined will experience a tiny sense of relief to witness what's happening to him now.

Yup, Trump will never admit that he did anything wrong.   There are not many personalities who would do such harm to the nation simply to preserve their ego.   If he would go that far —and he did— it is near certainty that he will never admit being wrong in anything (as he seems to have done his entire life).
