Firestone Wants 2022 PGA Championship

Firestone Country Club officials have made the PGA of America aware of their desire to host the 2022 PGA Championship, David Pillsbury, CEO of Firestone owner ClubCorp, told Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal Thursday.

The 2022 PGA was set for May 19-22 at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. But the PGA voted to strip the club of the major championship four days after supporters of President Donald Trump entered the U.S. Capitol building.

“We have made it known to all the appropriate people of our interest and desire to bring the PGA Championship back to Firestone and that we would bend over backwards as a club and an organization to make it an amazing championship,” Pillsbury said in a phone interview from Dallas, where ClubCorp is based.

UPDATE: on January 26th, the PGA of America announced that the 2022 PGA Championship would be played at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, OK.
