Golf Legend Jack Nicklaus Blasts PGA Over ‘Cancel Culture’ Against Trump

Golf legend Jack Nicklaus is widely considered to be the greatest golfer of all time with 117 professional tournament wins and a record 18 major championships, which is three more than second-placed Tiger Woods.

This year, the PGA Championship has decided to cancel its competition at the Trump National course in Bedminster, New Jersey, which is owned by former President Donald Trump. The PGA previously agreed in 2014, which was a victory for Trump.

This move is being viewed as “nothing more than cancel culture rearing its ugly head.”

Nicklaus said, “This move is cancel culture.”

“Donald Trump may be a lot of things, but he loves golf and he loves this country,” said Nicklaus. “He’s a student of the game and a formidable figure in the game.

Nicklaus added that he likes Seth Waugh, who is CEO of the PGA, but said he’s only doing “what the cancel culture will allow him to do.”

“Seth didn’t need this job,” Nicklaus explains. “He took the job because he thought he could give the PGA of America some good guidance. And I think he’s doing that.”

In 2020, Nicklaus supported Trump’s re-election campaign for a second term in the White House.

The PGA announced it had decided to change the venue four days after the Capitol incursion on Jan. 6, 2021.
