The COVID-delayed 2021 Ryder Cup is right around the corner – and it’s shaping up to be a cracker.

Taking place at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin from September 24-26, the 43rd edition of the biennial contest will see Steve Stricker’s American side attempt to wrestle back ownership of the famous gold trophy from a European side captained by Padraig Harrington.

Originally due to take place in 2020, the match was postponed due to the pandemic. However, it’s ‘all systems go’ for this year and the countdown is well and truly on.
