The golf major will be moved, according to a report.

 

I know that golf was a refuge for Trump, but this year we saw gains in rounds played.  Hard to say how 2021 will proceed, but I don't think golf will decline because of Trump.  Many presidents on both sides have played the sport while in office.  That being said, this issue is a bit different, because Trump directly benefits.  I think moving it is a good idea.  One of our core values is integrity.  We should hold ourselves to that.

Have you seen images of Mr. Trump's golf swing?  It's a somewhat athletic swing for his age.  If you go to the GHIN handicap site and do a "golfer lookup" you will discover that his handicap index is +2.3.

There was a whole book done about his golf cheating.....hes good for his age but his handicap is probably inflated by 8-10 strokes from what I've read.

I would bet after Jan. 20 he will have to putt the five footers.

I've read most of the excerpts from that book but I didn't want to get too political.  So, as I usually do, I followed a moderate path in my discourse.

In Scotland you have to putt them all out.

Why would they move 2022 PGA Championship? 

Not sure what you’re asking. Are you surprised because it’s over a year away?

I am not sure what ugly stuff you are referring to that would require the location of a tournament to be moved. 

I think it absolutely does. 16 months or 16 years is not enough time to forgive and forget.

To most Americans (not all) the Constitution has been defiled by a certain person.  The PGA nor the PTA should support that kind of person... ever.

I don’t believe your 1st statement to be anything more than your opinion. 
 

“You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts. “

You really are living under a rock.  Or under a divot chunk.  

One is entitled to the facts when they are substantiated. 

"A majority of the country believes President Donald Trump should be removed before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20 and two-thirds hold him accountable for the violent insurrection on Capitol Hill, according to a national poll released Sunday."

(Erik, if mentioning names is too political please feel free to remove this post)

I suppose if you were to poll a certain type of person they would say that.

A poll like that would not be substantiated. 

Okay, man. C’mon.

Here’s a fact for you:

4a615bfd-5ab7-411c-8691-ebfd46d4a087-And

Trump will join presidents Andrew Johnson, John Adams and John Quincy Adams in choosing not to attend the inauguration of his successor.

We’re not discussing politics here, but get real. The guy is an asshole. Scum. A joke. He’s done more damage in the last three months to the U.S. on the world stage and internally than many of the worst people managed to do over years.

    • I saw on Twitter that she was winning by one, and I knew she still wouldn't win. And she didn't get beat. She was at -6 after lipping out another short birdie putt (I'm watching it now, that just happened), and -5 won it. I know the course was tough, but she could have easily been three or four ahead, too. She does this to herself. It's not bad luck, she's not beat. She beats herself. She loses; she's not outplayed.
    • Because you probably pasted it as rich text (noted in the guide). And I don't hate the advice.
    • MLB changes for 2023, what do you think? The MLB Is Shifting Away From Defensive Shifts, Aiming for “Best Form of the Game” What is the MLB’s new shift rule? Learn about how Major League Baseball officials are cracking down on defensive...  
    • Okay, here's the lawyer approach. When you began your swing you had an intent to strike the ball on your downswing. When the water blasted you, did your intent to strike the ball change to not striking the ball? (Y/N). If Y, then there is no penalty. If N, then you incur a penalty. Only you can answer that question. If you say Y when it really is N, then it is a black mark on your soul. Not everyone gets the Kevin Na whiff.
