After Donald Trump's comments prompted the PGA of America to yank the Grand Slam of Golf from Trump National Los Angeles, the event has been quietly cancelled for 2015. Points for the PGA not dropping this news tomorrow, Friday of Labor Day weekend, the biggest Friday news dump day of the year.
The official statement:
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.
One also has to wonder if Mssrs. Spieth, Day and Johnson indicated they were unavailable, expediting the 2015 demise.
