The 43rd Ryder Cup a biennial international men’s golf competition that originally scheduled for September 2020 was postponed until next year on Wednesday because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The P.G.A. of America, which conducts the team event contested between players from the United States and Europe, said the competition, scheduled for Sept. 25 to 27, would instead be held on Sept. 21 to Sept. 26, 2021, at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisc., which was slated to host this year’s competition.
As a result of the postponement, all subsequent contests will move back to odd-numbered years.
“Unlike other major sporting events that are played in existing stadiums, we had to make a decision now about building facilities to host the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits,” Seth Waugh, the P.G.A. of America’s chief executive, said. “It became clear that as of today, our medical experts and the public authorities in Wisconsin could not give us certainty that conducting an event responsibly with thousands of spectators in September would be possible.”
