Trump gets his major: '22 PGA to Bedminster


It's official: The Donald will host a men's major championship.

The PGA of America announced Thursday that the 2022 PGA Championship will be played at Trump National Bedminster in Bedminster, N.J. The course, which previously had been awarded the 2017 U.S. Women's Open, will now also host the Senior PGA Championship in 2017.

The event will mark just the fourth time the season's final major will be played in the state of New Jersey, as the Wanamaker Trophy was awarded at Seaview Country Club in Atlantic City in 1942, then at Baltusrol in Springfield in 2005. The PGA is slated to return to Baltusrol in 2016.

Trump's course is 45 miles west of Manhattan, and the announcement adds yet another men's major to be contested in the New York metropolitan area. From 2016-2022, the region will host five men's majors - the U.S. Open in 2018 and 2020, plus the PGA in 2016, 2019 and 2022 - not to mention the Ryder Cup that will be held at Bethpage Black in 2024.

Trump National Bedminster now joins a long list of confirmed future PGA Championship venues, one that includes Valhalla Golf Club (2014), Whistling Straits (2015), Baltusrol (2016), Quail Hollow Club (2017), Bellerive Country Club (2018) and Bethpage Black (2019). The 2020 and 2021 venues have yet to be determined.
