The PGA shifted the 2022 PGA Championship away from Trump Bedminster, in January, 2021, the PGA announced that it would Relocate its 2022 PGA Championship away from Trump Bedminster, in New Jersey, following the Insurrection at the U.S. Capitol while Trump was still in Office.

The PGA eventually settled on Southern Hills in Tulsa, OK, to fill in for Bedminster, next spring. It will mark Southern Hills' Eighth Major Championship and Fifth PGA.

The PGA of America also issued the following statement: “The Trump Organization’s contribution to the golf community is appreciated. We are thankful the company employs hundreds of dedicated PGA Professionals and consistently gives back to the golf community through hosting charitable events and sponsoring junior golf programs.
