BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) The United States Golf Association is continuing its plan to hold the 2017 U.S. Women's Open at a New Jersey course owned by Donald Trump.

The USGA had no comment on a letter sent to it by three Democratic U.S. senators asked that the event be moved away from Trump National in Bedminster.

Richard Blumenthal, of Connecticut, Edward Markey, of Massachusetts, and Bob Casey, of Pennsylvania, made the request in a letter sent Monday, asking USGA executive director Mike Davis to consider suspending further events at properties owned by the Republican presidential candidate because of what they describe as a "pattern of degrading and dehumanizing women" over decades.
