The PGA of America is electing to postpone the Ryder Cup until 2021, in light of coronavirus cases spiking around the country\
The 43rd Ryder Cup matches were originally scheduled to take place Sept. 25-27 at Whistling Straits in Sheboygan, Wisc., and the location and time frame of the event will remain the same next year. As a result of the Ryder Cup’s impending postponement, the Presidents Cup, originally set to run in Sept. 30- Oct. 3, 2021 at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C., will move to 2022. This year’s Ryder Cup will take that window, and the next Ryder Cup — scheduled from Sept. 30 through Oct. 2, 2022, in Rome — will be pushed back to 2023.
The Ryder Cup features 12-person teams from the United States and Europe. The last time the event was postponed came in 2001 following the terrorist attacks in New York City on Sept. 11. The Ryder Cup — which began in 1927 and is played every other year — was outright canceled in 1939, 1941, 1943 and 1945 due to World War II.
