Ryder Cup 2020: Postponement likely as Whistling Straits announcement nears

Postponement is the most likely outcome as golf bosses on both sides of the Atlantic hold complex meetings to decide whether this year’s Ryder Cup can be played.

A European Tour spokesman was only prepared to say “fingers crossed” when asked whether a final decision will be revealed this week, but chief executive Keith Pelley had promised an announcement by the end of June. 

This is the time when the build programme for the biennial match between the United States and Europe, currently scheduled for 25-27 September at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin, would need to begin.

Ever since coronavirus forced sporting shutdown in March there has been speculation that the Ryder Cup would be postponed. Expectation continues to grow that there will be an extra year before Europe’s trophy defence.

Playing golf’s biggest event behind closed doors is unappealing and top stars, led by world number one Rory McIlroy, have said the match should not be played without fans present.
