Rider Cup: America’s favorite and has great home benefits – other games

The World Cycling Championship is not in Belgium, but Ryder Cup Golf is this week’s international sporting event.

The 43rd edition of the prestigious Twenty Years Tournament between the United States and Europe was scheduled to take place last year in Haven, Wisconsin, about 250 kilometers north of Chicago. Although many American PGA golf tournaments were held weeks ago, the Ryder Cup was postponed due to a corona infection. The audience-less version was questionable, offering more pay (and lots of revenue) than any other competition. So, one year in advance, the Ryder Cup will be held again in the odd years as in the 20th century: the next edition will be in 2023 at the Marco Simon Golf & Country Club in Rome.

During a wonderful fall, Lake Michigan stretches for about two miles. Betrayal, because frequent strong winds from a nearby lake can be a major factor. A course for versatile players who have mastered every aspect of golf. Every day 40,000 to 45,000 visitors will cheer them on, and about 4,000 volunteers will come with them. To accommodate them, about 120,000 square meters of temporary stands were built and 90,000 square meters of carpet was laid. As there are consistently high corona figures in the United States, all participants are required to wear a mouth mask in indoor facilities. They are ‘highly advised’ to do so in the open as well as in the social space. In addition, they should avoid any contact with players and their caddies – no more fives or fists. Vaccination is not mandatory, but visitors who have been tested for corona infection for at least two weeks should be at home. Considering the travel restrictions, there will be no European golf fans or the group will further enhance America’s home advantage. This can play a key role in a match play formula (two golfers playing against each other). Welcome support for Americans who have failed nine times in the last twelve editions, including in Paris (17.5 vs. 10.5) in 2018. It is no coincidence that they won three times on home soil: in 1999, 2008 and 2016. With at least 9 players in the top eleven in the world rankings, the United States is a favorite among bookmakers this time around.

Patrick Reid, nicknamed ‘Captain America’ after missing only one game in the last two editions of the Ryder Cup, was not a very significant presenter. He is currently debilitated by double pneumonia. Tiger Woods recovering from a car accident is not just another presenter. Striker Woods is expected to be the vice-captain who will not play. He presented his three wildcards to European team captain Badrek Harrington, Spaniard Sergio Garcia, Irishman Shane Lori and Englishman Ian Boulder. They include Austrian Bernd Weisberger, Englishman Tyrell Hutton, Paul Casey, Matt Fitzpatrick, Lee Westwood and Tommy Fleetwood, Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy, Norwegian Victor Howland and Spaniard John Rahm. Europeans in the first twelve.
