Ryder Cup Postponed Until 2021

By Daily Sports on July 9, 2020

The 2020 Ryder Cup has been postponed for a year because the coronavirus pandemic means the event cannot be staged safely with spectators present.

The match between the United States and Europe was due to be held at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin on 25-27 September.

But the biennial event has now been rescheduled for 24-26 September 2021.

“The spectators make it a unique and compelling event and playing without them was not a realistic option,” said PGA of America chief Seth Waugh.

“It became clear that our medical experts and the public authorities in Wisconsin could not give us certainty that conducting an event responsibly with thousands of spectators in September would be possible.

“Given that uncertainty, we knew rescheduling was the right call.”

Professional men’s golf in the US has resumed behind closed doors but players have said the Ryder Cup should not go ahead without fans.

The women’s Solheim Cup is scheduled to take place from 4-6 September, 2021 in Ohio and LPGA commissioner Mike Whan said in April: “Nothing drowns out a Solheim Cup. We wouldn’t change our Solheim Cup if the Ryder Cup changed their date.” (BBC)
