Michelle Wie explains how she and Danielle Kang came up with their BFF handshake

Donald Trump reportedly threatened to sue the USGA if it moved the 2017 U.S. Women's Open away from his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., according to a report from USA Today's Christine Brennan published Monday.

The 72nd US Women's Open Golf Championship tees off on Thursday at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Mike Davis, executive director of the U.S. Golf Association, told members of the USGA's executive committee about Trump's threat, USA TODAY said.

Reached on his cell phone Monday morning at Trump National, where the U.S. Women's Open takes place this week, Davis said, "I have no comment on that".

"We're here to play a major championship hosted by the USGA", said Kang, who grew up in California.

Wenger Confirms Interest In Attacker As Arsenal Boss Lines-Up £45m Bid
The FC panel assess Alexis Sanchez's clouded relationship with Arsenal and the chances of him making a move this summer. When asked by Fox Sports whether Sanchez will stay at the club, he responded emphatically: "Yes, definitely".

"I have my opinion, and everybody is free to have their own opinion, but for me I think I'm just going to have a great week here, enjoy it and I'm excited to play the U.S. Women's Open and not think of it in a political way for me".

"We expect the USGA and LPGA to respect their fans and players enough to give their business to people who are not actively undermining women", UltraViolet co-founder Shaunna Thomas said.

Davis told the executive committee, "We can't get out of this".

"I'm not here to talk about politics - I'm not here to do that", said Hawaii native and 2014 U.S. Women's Open champion Michelle Wie before her practice round at the Somerset County course.

At the time, Trump's presidential campaign was in its infancy.

US Condemns Bahrain Court Decision to Jail Rights Activist for Two Years
Human rights defender Nabeel Rajab has been sentenced to two years in prison in Bahrain for "broadcasting fake news". Human Rights First said the ruling was "blatant injustice created to serve political interests".

"More than anything, it was very preemptive, before the storm if he did get elected president", the source told USA Today.

"We can't get out of this...he's going to sue us", said Davis during the call, according to the person.

"The decision that the USGA makes is more consequential than simply the geographic location of a golf tournament", the senators wrote. "I'm excited to compete in this championship and it's really purely about the golf". The USGA, since its founding in 1894, has never been involved with politics.

Brittany Lincicome, a seven-time victor on the LPGA Tour, recently told the Chicago Tribune that she hoped the president would stay away from the event so the focus will be on the golfers and not Trump. We appreciate that there's some out there that want to make this a political event.
