Right when we’re getting some normalcy in our sports lives with back-to-back live PGA TOUR tournaments, golf could lose one of the biggest events of the remaining year.
According to a report from The Guardian across the pond, this year’s Ryder Cup will be postponed until 2021. The biennial competition between the United States and Europe was set for September 22-27 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, but there are whispers that it will be pushed back with an official announcement coming next week.
For what it’s worth, a spokesperson for the Ryder Cup refuted the report with this statement to WTMJ, a radio station in Wisconsin:
“The 2020 Ryder Cup remains as scheduled, September 22-27, at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. The PGA of America continues to closely follow the guidance of federal, state, and local public health authorities. The safety and well-being of all is our highest priority.” [WTMJ]
Here’s to hoping The Guardian is wrong because the U.S. Open and Ryder Cup on consecutive weekends sounds pretty awesome.
