Ryder Cup 2020

Ryder Cup 2020: It will be the US’ turn to host the 2020 Ryder Cup, being held at the Whistling Straits Golf Course in Wisconsin, which sits along the shore of Lake Michigan.

The Pete Dye course has hosted three PGA championships, in 2004, 2010 and 2015, but this will be the first time it’s hosted the most prestigious team championship in golf, the Ryder Cup.

Europe regained the 2018 Ryder Cup in sensational style in Paris to continue America’s horrible run away from home. Francesco Molinari inspired Thomas Bjorn’s side to victory and won the decisive point against Phil Mickelson.

Team USA have failed to win on European soil since 1993 and will no doubt be looking forward to playing the role of hosts in 2020.

Open, rugged and windswept terrain defines The Straits®, sculpted along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. Borrowing influences from Irish links courses, The Straits has fescue fairways and massive sand dune bunkers. Just inland, interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland and dunes aspect of The Irish is a deceiving tranquil landscape.#
