The 2020 Ryder Cup has been postponed a year to ensure fans can go and make it the greatest golfing event there is!
Like every sport, golf has been on hold for the majority of 2020. Because of this, only three out of the four majors are being played this year. The Open is the only one to have cancelled and not re-schedule for 2020.
The Ryder Cup was meant to be played from 22nd September – 27th September. However, the US Open has now been re-scheduled for the weekend before this. As the Ryder Cup is only played every four years it is easy to move it to next year as The US Open is an annual tournament and needs to be played.
The competition between Europe and America will now be played from 21st September – 26th September 2021. On top of a scheduling issue, was the issue of having no fans attend. The Ryder Cup is huge for any golf fan and arguably the fans at the course make it what it is.
There is a huge rivalry between both sets of fans and they make the players aware of this. Over the years we have seen plenty of times where the players have given it back to the fans, all in good spirit though. Without them being there, it wouldn’t have the same excitement or passion from the players.
Next years Ryder Cup is still being held at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
America is well ahead in the overall score. They have won 26 with Europe winning just 11. Europe and America have their fair share of top players with Europe currently having the world number one and two in McIlroy and Rahm.
Currently, no odds are available but we will bring them as soon as possible.
Even though the Ryder Cup is postponed, we still have majors to look forward to in 2020. Paddy Power has odds available on all of them, in which currently Rory is the favourite for all three!
The next major is the US PGA Championship in San Francisco at TPC Harding Park. Rory goes into it priced at 7/1, with Bryson DeChambeau at 11/1. The American just won the Rocket Mortgage Classic and with his recent change in physique, will fancy his chances.
On top of this, are your usual candidates, Koepka (12/1), DJ (12/1), Rahm (12/1) and Justin Thomas (12/1). All these men stand a good chance of winning at next months major. As we get closer to the US PGA Championship we will bring you a more detailed breakdown of the players and their chances.
