Oklahoma's Southern Hills Country Club will replace Donald Trump's Bedminster course as host of next year's PGA Championship, organisers have confirmed.

Earlier this month, the PGA of America took the decision to take the US PGA Championship, one of the four major championships in men's golf, away from the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.

The 2022 PGA Championship is coming to Tulsa.

Southern Hills was not due to host the PGA Championship until 2030. The tournament will take place from 19th to 22nd May 2022.

The PGA of America decided earlier this month to move away from Donald Trump's New Jersey course after the U.S. Capitol attacks on January 6.

Bonds has yet to be inducted due to his alleged ties to performance-enhancing drugs, which he has denied using over the years. But there are signs that the 2021 shutout could be repeated next year - and perhaps the year after that as well.

Southern Hills most recently held the 2009 U.S. Amateur, won by Byeong-Hun An. There will be a great deal of excitement around today's generation of top players taking on Southern Hills for the first time in a Major championship.

Tiger Woods claimed the last PGA Championship held at Southern Hills in 2007, with Nick Prince winning the 1994 event, Raymond Floyd in 1982 and Dave Stockton in 1970.

The United States Open premiered there in 1958, 1977 and 2001.

In a statement the PGA of America said: "We're excited to return to Southern Hills Country Club for the fifth time".

The host course for that event is listed as "TBD" on the PGA of America website. After Southern Hills, it goes to Oak Hill in Rochester, New York.
