Rather than looking back, let’s look forward to some fantastic golfing events in 2021!
There’s still some uncertainty when spectators may be able to return but for starters The Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup take place in the same month and same year for the second time ever. Team Europe are the holders of both cups and will see the ladies’ and men’s teams do battle in the USA during September with barely 3 weeks separating this competitions. The 2021 Solheim Cup is being held at the Inverness Club in Toledo, while the Ryder Cup, postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, is set to take place at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. A double header that will really keep us glued to our screens!
The Masters returns in April and the Men’s British Open will take place at Royal St George’s in July, followed by the Ladies British Open at Carnoustie in August. Will Dustin Johnson retain his crown so soon in the season and will we have new Champions for the British Opens?
All in all, we very much hope to look forward to a happier and brighter 2021. If nothing else, golf showed itself to be a healthy diversion during the pandemic as shown by more rounds played last year along with newer players participating and increased memberships at golf clubs during 2020.
