Marquee Event: Event and Fall Hills

marquee event: The USGA has faced pressure from women's groups and three Democratic U.S. senators to move the event because of Trump's comments about women and minorities, namely audio that surfaced during the campaign of Trump vulgarly describing his interactions with women, according to CBC. The USGA refused, keeping the marquee event at the course located a few miles from its headquarters in Fall Hills. The biggest event in women's golf is being held at Trump National Golf Club in Bedford, N.J., and the first day of formal interviews Tuesday had as much to do with the tournament that starts Thursday as it did about the Republican president. Former Open champions Michelle Wie, So Yeon Ryu of South Korea and former world No. 1 Lydia Ko of New Zealand skirted questions Tuesday about Trump's past, insisting they were focused on playing golf this week. Trump is scheduled to be in France on Friday for a Bastille Day celebration. Avoiding political questions It's unclear whether Trump will attend the tournament that runs through Sunday, said Matt Sawicki, director of USGA championships. ( As reported in the news.
