The PGA of America is set to announce the postponement of this year’s Ryder Cup, set for Whistling Straits in Kohler, until 2021. The tournament features a European squad matching up against American golfers every two years. The Ryder Cup is known for its large crowds and boisterous fans, breaking from golf’s traditional model. Given the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin, that atmosphere would most likely have been impossible. The location alternates between the two continents, so an American course hosts only once every four years. The Midwest has been heavily featured in recent decades with Oakland Hills in Michigan, Medinah near Chicago, and Hazeltine outside of Minneapolis, serving as the setting for one of the game’s most significant events since 2004. When the Ryder Cup finally happens, it will be its first time ever in Wisconsin.
