    Local PGA chapters have big role in tournament planning administration, recruitment of volunteers, etc.

    I think the publicly-owned courses like Bethpage and Harding would be the most difficult to line up on short notice.

    Privates would be easier provided they aren’t working on upgrades in advance of hosting.

    Baltusrol has it in 2029. Bethpage has the 2025 Ryder Cup.

    I love the idea of a Harding Park do-over, though they will be at Olympic in 2028, but so what. The PGA ignored the West Coast for two decades.

    Alan is likely as plugged in as anyone.

    I don’t get the delay.

    Has Shoal Creek solved its blatantly racist issues? They should be lumped in with the Tangerine Tantrum's courses and clubs until they do and can prove so.

    OK, all good ... but has the club solved its racial issue?

    (Not trying to either troll or antagonize ... just because they hosted doesn't mean the problem is solved. See also: Augusta National long after they were called out for being blatantly discriminatory.)

    Honestly, don't know. But if the USGA went there as recently as 2 1/2 years ago, I'd assume -- I know, a big thing these days -- that things have been resolved.

    I don’t think the USGA would go there if they hadn’t, and I don’t think Shipnuck would mention them as a contender if it was still an issue.

    Augusta is in its own universe.

    I totally get the delay. Golf's governing bodies are still largely old, white and Republican, and they will always make sure all their bases are covered and constituents are pacified before doing the right thing. Like Hootie said, they'll never do anything at the point of a bayonet.

    Trump also has 10 days to spitefully stir up an IRS audit of the PGA of America if they do it before. Of course, Trump is so stupid he would audit the Tour.
