The Ryder Cup was postponed until 2021 in Wisconsin due to the Covid-19 pandemic. After weeks of discussions between the PGA of America, the European Tour and the PGA Tour the event, scheduled for September 25-27 at Whistling Straits had to be moved to September 24-26 in 2021.

The next Ryder Cup to be held in Europe has also been moved by a year to 2023 in Rome.

That is the second time in the last two decades the Ryder Cup was postponed, the first time was in 2001, after the September 11 terrorist attacks.
