“We’re working obviously with the state and local governments to have all those conversations. But our plan is to have a Ryder Cup in a way- have it be the greatest Ryder Cup in history. I think the world as we’ve seen is ready to have a party.” Said Waugh, America’s P.G.A. C.E.O.
The P.G.A. of America received over 10,000 fans daily to the Kiawah Island. The significant number remains short of the maximum capacity of the Ocean’s course. The C.E.O. of American P.G.A. promised a packed house welcome to golf fans for the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits.
Professional players like Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka expressed reservations about playing the biennial match last year without spectators. It was then postponed, returning in 2021 with a blast. Having presented its Covid-19 protocols to the authorities, America’s P.G.A. through Waugh and other leaders expressed high hopes to the dawning of a brim capacity Ryder Cup.
Michael O’Reilly, golf operations Director, said earlier in the year that brim capacity at Destination Kohler is about 40,000 golf fans each day. Fast up is the 2021 Ryder Cup from September 24th to 26th, with Team Europe as the defending champions. The real question is, are you ready to party?
