Ryder Cup may have to ‘take one for team’ and go ahead without fans: Harrington

作者:admin 2020-05-26

Staging this year’s Ryder Cup without fans is not in the event’s best interests but it might have to “take one for the team” and proceed that way amid the COVID-19 crisis, Team Europe captain Padraig Harrington told The Times newspaper.

The golf calendar has been severely affected due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected more than 3.11 million people globally, causing over 216,000 deaths.

Three of the year’s four majors have been rescheduled and the British Open has been cancelled, but the Ryder Cup is scheduled in Whistling Straits, Wisconsin during Sept. 25-27 with PGA of America chief Seth Waugh saying it may be held without fans.

“Everyone wants fans to be there, but the question is does sport need the Ryder Cup and should the Ryder Cup take one for the team?” Irishman Harrington told the Times.

“Would it be for the greater good of sport? It wouldn’t be in the Ryder Cup’s best interests but it could be in the best interests of enough people who want to see a big sporting occasion on TV.”
