Golf has really put up with an edgy rapport with the US presidential candidate. The PGA Tour has tightly persisted the matter of finance and not politics, was the key motive behind of WGC-Cadillac Championship, which has been being moved away from Donald Trump’s Doral property in Miami. It was prior decided on Wednesday that the WGC-Cadillac Championship which had glossy prize money of $9.5m this year used to attract world’s best players was being shoved from Doral to Mexico City on a seven year contract.
Tim Finchem, the outgoing commissioner of PGA Tour defended the move and arranged for some reasons. He clarified “As we predicted earlier, the total chaos is running out here, is not at all political. It is fundamentally a sponsorship issue. We have responsibility and do value dollars for our players. We must look after on their interests, short term and long term”.
Tim added “The decision made here was based on the reality that we were not able to hold the sponsorship for the next year’s contest at Doral or for other years. But at the same time we are now ready to utilize the opening to organize a spectacular event of Golf for the growth of sport in South America and Central America for number of years”.
The PGA Tour committee had explained to Donald about the actual reason but he showed distress as the golf championship is leaving from his own backyard. Tim Finchem is much hopeful that someday Miami would get its own vigor back and says “We are keen to come back to Doral. We need to find out a right property to resume our long term involvement in the community. We will continue our main job, with an eye towards bringing appropriate funding. We can again recommence our connection in Miami, which would be most gratifying matter than anything else”.
