The PGA of America will keep the 2017 PGA Championship in Charlotte despite its objection to North Carolina House Bill 2, which limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people in the state.The tournament will be held at Quail Hollow Club.?The PGA of America strongly opposes North Carolina HB2. It contradicts our commitment to create an inclusive and welcoming environment at our events. We remain hopeful that the law will be changed, the organization said in a written statement. ?Since the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte is a private facility not subject to all of the provisions of HB2, at the 2017 PGA Championship we plan to allow spectators to use the restroom that conforms with their gender identity or gender expression, the statement said. ?As we look to future events, our willingness to consider coming back to the State of North Carolina will be severely impacted unless HB2 is overturned.The controversy swirling around HB2 has already impacted the planning of another major sporting event in the state. On Thursday, the NBA decided to move the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte without announcing an alternate venue, citing its objection to the legislation.The bill, also called The Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, which was signed into law earlier this year by Gov. Pat McCrory, requires transgender people to use bathrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates. It applies only to bathrooms in government buildings, public schools and public universities.Private companies are allowed to implement any policy they choose.A provision of the original bill also excluded gender identity and sexual orientation from statewide anti-discrimination protections. McCrory recently signed legislation that restored the states original non-discrimination protections removed by HB2.Custom Kevin Mchale Jersey .

She didnt arrive at Arthur Ashe Stadium until 6:30 p.m., knowing that a late night on court awaited her.Keys and fellow American Alison Riske didnt envision it going quite so late. Their first-round U.S. Open match didnt end until 1:48 a.m. Tuesday.It was the latest finish for a womens match in tournament history -- typically the women play first and the men second in the night session, so six mens matches have ended later.The first night matches of the U.S. Open always start later because of the opening ceremony, but more often than not theyre routs with a top player facing an unseeded opponent.But on Monday, No. 1 Novak Djokovic was pushed to four sets, then Riske and Keys went three.The eighth-seeded Keys rallied from down a set and a break to win 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in 2 hours, 26 minutes.Both players said they werent particularly aware on court of how late it was.Now that Im a part of it, yay, Keys said of setting a record. Lets not try to break it.Asked if shes a night owl, Riske said simply: No.Keys, meanwhile, is definitely not a morrning person.ddddddddddddThis time of morning, I am, she said in her on-court interview shortly before 2 a.m. At 6 a.m., 7 a.m., Im not a good person.The 60th-ranked Riske had two points on her serve at 5-4 in the second-set tiebreaker to try to close out the match, but Keys won them both and clinched the set on the next point.Riske has lost 10 straight Grand Slam matches. Shes 2-16 against top-10 opponents, though one of the victories came against Petra Kvitova as Riske reached the round of 16 at the 2013 U.S. Open.Its only a matter of time that things start turning my way, she said.Keys took a medical timeout in the second set to have a trainer work on her right shoulder. She said it was just soreness and she didnt expect it to be an issue going forward.Keys hasnt lost in the first round at a major since the 2014 French Open. The 21-year-old is coming off a run to the Olympic semifinals, but she pulled out of the hard-court tuneup at New Haven because of a neck injury. ' ' '
