Ryder Cup to be postponed to 2021 per report

James Corrigan of the Telegraph is reporting that the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits will be postponed until 2021.

The Ryder Cup, often referred to as sport’s third-biggest event, is expected to be postponed until next year, with the golf authorities rapidly reaching the decision that their most lucrative spectacle should not be jammed into a schedule that is contracting by the week due to the coronavirus crisis.

This news comes on the heels of the PGA of America, who also runs the Ryder Cup, postponing the PGA Championship at Harding Park until later this summer.
