The Ryder Cup was moved to September 2021 after the coronavirus impacted sports around the world, including golf. The decision has been made to postpone the Ryder Cup to 2021.

In 2018, Europe dominated the United States, 17.5-10.5. The United States had a four-point deficit heading into the final day of this event, but couldn’t overcome Europe’s lead.

In 2016, the United States took the lead 17-11. The Americans gained just 3.5 points heading into the final matchday and managed to hang on, winning seven singles matches. Davis Love III was then the team captain and they won at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota.
