On Thursday will start the 39th Women’s British Open Championship at Turnberry’s Ailsa Course. This was not 100% sure if LPGA will agree to hold the championship at Turnberry after Donald Trump’s remarks on Mexican immigrants.
LPGA, PGA of America, PGA Tour and USGA immediately dissociated from Donald Trump’s view. However due to time constraints LPGA decided not to look for a new place for the 2015 Ricoh Women’s British Open Championship.
However there were companies (Macy’s, NBC Universal, Univision, and Nascar have all cut ties with Trump in one way or another.) who cut ties with Donald Trump.
I found some golf championships that are still scheduled to be played at Donald Trump’s golf courses, including 2017 U.S. Women’s Open, at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, and the 2017 Senior P.G.A. Championship, at Trump National Golf Club Washington D.C.
Will LPGA, PGA Tour, PGA of America and USGA be able to stand up stronger for their principles/values????
At the very same time Trump hopes that the 2015 Ricoh Women’s British Open Championship will be successful and he will be awarded to host men’s British Open after 2018.
