As the first golf course owner to be elected U.S. president took the oath of office Friday, the golf industry waits with anticipation.
Will Donald J. Trump be good for the game?
Trump campaigned as a political outsider on a bold platform of change, notably to overturn Obamacare, reduce taxes, create jobs and rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. His stunning run to the White House has been well received by Wall Street in the past two months, and a national poll of the small-business community – which includes most golf courses – has registered the highest optimism in more than a decade.

It is being widely reported that the PGA of America is considering moving the PGA Championship to May, beginning in 2019. The shift would be crucial to the PGA Tour’s plan to move the FedEx Cup playoffs to August and finish the Tour Championship before the NFL season starts. It would be a great move by Jay Monahan, the new commissioner of the PGA Tour, but a bad one by Pete Bevacqua, the PGA of America’s chief executive officer.
Moving the PGA Championship earlier in the schedule during Olympic years such as 2020 and 2024 would make the PGA relevant in determining who makes golf’s Olympic teams, which presently is not the case. To have that option is one of the fundamental reasons why the PGA picked TPC Harding Park in San Francisco for the 2020 PGA.
