    THE GUARDIAN REPORTED THE RYDER CUP won't be played this year:
    Confirmation that the Ryder Cup, due to be held in September at Whistling Straits, will be postponed until 2021 is expected next week....
    With health and safety concerns to the fore – playing the biennial competition without spectators has never been a serious option – postponement is now seen as the most responsible solution. As recently as last month hopes had been raised that the Ryder Cup could take place. The relevant parties have considered the US and Europe facing off in front of reduced numbers, with around 25,000 per day mooted, but that is not now thought viable amid coronavirus concerns. Ongoing travel restrictions – such as quarantine – are also a factor.
    The Ryder Cup will remain in "odd" years following the switch, as was the case before 9/11 led to a 12-month delay to its 2001 version.
    This is another disappointment, but it's the right decision given the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic.

    Smart move. Ryder Cup without crowds is pointless.
