PGA of America cancels Grand Slam of Golf 

event after taking it away from Trump course

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (AP) - The PGA of America will not hold its Grand Slam of Golf for the major champions this year.
The 36-hole exhibition was supposed to be played in October at Trump National in Los Angeles. The US PGA and Donald Trump agreed that it would move away from Trump’s course after he received criticism for his remarks about Mexican immigrants while launching his candidacy for U.S. president.
The US PGA had been looking for a replacement golf course with suitable dates. But today the US PGA announced it would cancel the event because of the timing and logistics required to stage the exhibition at the “highest standards.”
The major champions this year are Jordan Spieth (Masters and U.S. Open), Zach Johnson (Open) and Jason Day (PGA Championship).
