NAUCALPAN, Mexico (AP) — A golf tournament yanked from a Florida resort owned by Donald Trump has unveiled its new home in Mexico.
Sponsor Grupo Salinas previewed plans for the event Wednesday without any mention of Trump. It’s scheduled for March at the Chapultepec Golf Club outside Mexico City.
The PGA Tour revealed in June the World Golf Championship event was moving to Mexico after holding it at Trump National Doral in Miami since 2007. The announcement came nearly a year after the now Republican presidential nominee accused Mexican migrants of bringing drugs to the U.S. and being rapists.
At the time, PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said the move was because a sponsor could not be found to keep the event in Miami. He conceded Trump’s ownership may have complicated the sponsor search.
