Los Angeles - The 2015 Grand Slam of golf featuring the year's major champions has been cancelled as the PGA of America found it too complicated to move it from Donald Trump's Los Angeles course.

The PGA had announced in July that it was pulling the October event from Trump National Los Angeles over the billionaire presidential hopeful's controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants.

Organizers originally hoped to find a new venue for the 36-hole exhibition, which this year was expected to feature Masters and US Open winner Jordan Spieth, British Open champion Zach Johnson and PGA Champion Jason Day.

"Due to the timing and logistics needed to stage the PGA Grand Slam of Golf to the highest standards, we are disappointed that we will not be able to conduct the event this year," the PGA of America said Thursday in a statement.

"This was a memorable year for major championship golf and the PGA of America congratulates Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson and Jason Day on their impressive wins. We look forward to conducting the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in 2016."
