McIlroy against fan-less Ryder Cup

LOS ANGELES — World number one Rory McIlroy on Tuesday added his voice to the chorus of players opposed to the idea of playing this year's Ryder Cup without spectators.

With the global golf season in chaos due to the coronavirus pandemic, the game's administrators are running through a range of possible scenarios as they attempt to plot a path back to competition.

For organizers of the Ryder Cup, which is due to take place at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin from September  二 五- 二 七, that has included studying whether the tournament could be played without fans.

PGA chief executive Seth Waugh revealed earlier this week that officialshad looked at the possibility of creating a "virtual fan experience公众for the fiercely competitive team clash between Europe and the United States.

Waugh however acknowledged that a Ryder Cup without spectators was "hard to imagine,公众noting they were an integral part of the raucous and often febrile golfing spectacle.

McIlroy, speaking during an Instagram live event for sponsors TaylorMade, said he would rather see this year's event delayed for a year than played before empty galleries.

"I have a pretty strong view on this. I get the financial implications for everyone involved – there's a lot that goes into putting on the Ryder Cup that people don't probably know or appreciate – but having a Ryder Cup without fans is not a Ryder Cup,"大众McIlroy said.

"For me I would much rather they delay it until  二0 二 一 than play it at Whistling Straits without fans. And that's from a European going to America, knowing that I'm going to get abuse!

"Obviously it would be better for Europeans to play without fans because we wouldn't have to deal with some of the stuff that you have to put up with – but at the same time it's not a Ryder Cup.

"It wouldn't be a great spectacle, there'd be no atmosphere, so if it came to whether they had to choose between not playing the Ryder Cup or playing it without fans, I would say just delay it for a year and play it in  二0 二 一."

McIlroy added that a year's delay would also work in favor of  二0 二 二 Ryder Cup hosts Italy, one of the worst affected countries in the coronavirus outbreak.

"If they do delay it until  二0 二 一, the next Ryder Cup is supposed to be in Italy, and we know how badly affected Italy was by coronavirus, so it gives that country an extra year to prepare for the Ryder Cup in  二0 二 三 instead of  二0 二 二,"大众McIlroy said.

"This is only one opinion but if we have to play the Ryder Cup behindclosed doors this year, I'd rather just delay it.公众— AFP
