Raucous, partisan crowds are integral to the febrile spectacle of Ryder Cup competition, but COVID-19 could ensure that this year’s competition takes place before empty galleries. “It’s hard to imagine one without fans,” Waugh told WFAN. “We have begun to talk about whether you could create some virtual fan experience, and we’re going to try to be as creative as we can. “It’s (still) to be determined, frankly, whether you could hold it without fans or not… the fans are the Ryder Cup, to a certain degree.” Europe’s Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington said earlier this month the event should be scrapped if fans are ordered to stay away.center_img Loading… last_img read more
