PGA Of America, Ryder Cup Europe and PGA TOUR Collaborate to Establish New Dates PALM BEACH GARDENS and PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (July 8, 2020) - The PGA of America, Ryder Cup Europe and the PGA TOUR jointly announced today that both the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup have been rescheduled and will now be played one year later than originally planned. Today, the Ryder Cup is golf’s pre-eminent event, biennially bringing together 12-member teams from the U.S. And Europe for glory and pride on a three-day worldwide stage. Spanning 91 years and now 42 competitions, the Ryder Cup also is among the last great professional sporting events where winning, and not prize money, is the reward.

The pandemic forced the postponement of the 43rd biennial battle between the United States and Europe, originally scheduled for Sept. 25-27 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. Twelve of the best American and European male golfers will now play Sept. 24-26, 2021, still at Whistling Straits.

In August, Team USA changed its selection criteria for the 2021 event. All points earned by U.S. players since qualification began in 2019 will be recognized, and the time to accrue points was extended through the 2021 BMW Championship (Aug. 26-29). The top six players on the points list will qualify, with U.S. captain Steve Stricker making the final six picks following the 2021 Tour Championship (Sept. 2-5).
