PGA of America Cancels 2015 PGA Grand Slam of Golf
Nearly two months after pulling the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from Trump National Los Angeles, the PGA of America has scrapped the event altogether for 2015.
The organization announced Thursday that the event, which pits the past four major champions against each other in stroke-play, would not be held in 2015 "due to the timing and logistics needed to stage the PGA Grand Slam of Golf to the highest standards."
The event was originally scheduled to take place Oct. 20-21 at Trump National LA but was moved from the course in the wake of Trump’s comments regarding Mexican immigration.
Read the full statement from the PGA of America below.
Due to the timing and logistics needed to stage the PGA Grand Slam of Golf to the highest standards, we are disappointed that we will not be able to conduct the event this year. This was a memorable year for major championship golf and the PGA of America congratulates Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson and Jason Day on their impressive wins. We look forward to conducting the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in 2016.
