Trump can’t harm golf. And it’s foolish to think the R&A and the PGA can hurt Trump. All parties are too big to fail. The only people harmed in this childish exercise are the people who have given both Trump and the golfing bodies their power and money – golf fans.
Professional sports are at a cultural crossroads. Specifically, a political one. The PGA is taking one path while most other sports try another.
Some day - hopefully sooner than later – the golf industry will return to normal. Question is, what will be the “new’’ normal look like?
