In the wake of the PGA of America’s decision to move next year’s PGA Championship away from Trump National Bedminster, the R&A has underlined its reluctance to grant what is now Trump Turnberry the opportunity to host the Open for a fifth time.
This can be a turning point. Turn away from Donald Trump – the man, not the politician. And make it clear that anyone who incites violence for any reason, in any context in the future, is not welcome in golf.
The tour said that it contemplated cancelling upcoming tournaments but decided that the best decision was to continue playing, adding that the situation remained fluid and was subject to possible change.
