Golf’s 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in the US state of Wisconsin is set to be postponed by a year, according to The Guardian, while the PGA of America has confirmed that the 2020 PGA Championship will be held behind closed doors.

The UK newspaper said the Ryder Cup announcement is expected next week, with the biennial clash between the United States and Europe currently scheduled for September 25-27. In April, PGA of America chief executive Seth Waugh revealed that the tournament could be held without spectators, but the governing body, along with fellow organiser the European Tour, is said to have decided this isn’t an option.
