Ryder Cup, statements
“Less than a year to go – added Andrea Abodi – and we expect these months to pass in an industrious way. There are so many things to do on the schedule. This applies to the organization, which will be perfect, and to the infrastructures which are not a secondary issue. Golf in Italy must get out of the perception that it is an expensive and elitist sport. In fact, in the world it represents a popular discipline, capable of bringing people into harmony with themselves and with the environment. I am convinced that in Italy there will still be many surprises for those who want to follow and practice this sport. Many people will arrive in Rome, probably not all those who would like to attend, given the huge demand. Television will provide a great help and I hope the Ryder Cup drive will be as strong as the enthusiasm in the world for this great competition. “
