Tuesday, May 26, 2020

(UNDATED) - World No. 1 Rory McIlroy has said he believes the majority of players would like to see the Ryder Cup postponed until 2021, saying that it would be the "right call" to do so. The golf calendar has been ravaged by the coronavirus outbreak, with three of the sport's four majors -- the Masters, U.S. Open and PGA Championship -- postponed, and The Open cancelled altogether. The 2020 Ryder Cup is scheduled to take place from Sept. 25-27 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, but there are doubts that it can go ahead as planned. The Northern Irishman said that he believes the tournament will be pushed back by a year to allow fans to attend. McIlroy played alongside Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in The TaylorMade Driving Relief event earlier this month at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida. It the first televised event of PGA Tour golfers competing since the Players Championship was canceled on March 12. The PGA Tour is set to resume on June 11, without fans in attendance, at the Charles Schwab Colonial event in Texas.
