Donald Trump gets to host a major championship on one of his golf courses.

The PGA of America announced a partnership Thursday that will bring the 2022 PGA Championship to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. The Senior PGA Championship will go to Trump National Golf in Potomac Falls, Va., in 2017.

Trump has 17 golf courses around the world. That includes an agreement announced this week to buy Turnberry.

The American developer is slowly becoming a major force in golf. Trump National Doral in South Florida hosts a World Golf Championship the same week in March that his course in Puerto Rico hosts a regular PGA Tour event.

The PGA Championship in '22 would be his first major, unless the British Open returns to Turnberry before then.
