Junior Ryder Cup in Wisconsin canceled. This is the joint announcement of the PGA of America and the Ryder Cup Europe. The event, originally scheduled for September 20 and 21 at Blue Mound Golf & Country Club in Wauwatosa, will not be played due to international travel restrictions due to the pandemic. And so the show reserved for the 24 best young talents under 18 from the United States and Team Europe – 12 per team, 6 boys and 6 girls – will return to the protagonist in two years in Italy and will precede the Ryder Cup of 2023 at Marco Simone Golf & Country Guidonia Montecelio Club (Rome).
Junior Ryder Cup, Wisconsin
The PGA of America in Wisconsin will welcome the members of the US Junior Ryder Cup Team to Whistling Straits – where the big names of the USA and the Old Continent will compete – for an exhibition match. The team will also be presented during the opening ceremony of the American Ryder Cup.
Now it’s official, Francesco Molinari misses the Tokyo Olympics. A consultation with his doctor has dispelled all doubts: the Turinese golfer will not be able to recover in time – for the men’s individual competition scheduled from 29 July to 1 August at the Kasumigaseki Country Club – from a back injury that has tormented him from time and that had already forced him to skip, among other appointments, the PGA Championship, second Major of 2021. Renato Paratore is ready in his place.
“I’m trying to find the right words, but I can’t find them. I have a back problem that has held me back for most of the season and which now unfortunately prevents me from representing my country in the most important sporting event in the world. For all Italian athletes hoping to be able to participate in the Olympics in the future “. Thus, on twitter, Francesco Molinari motivated the choice of him. Difficult, for an athlete who had already decided to forfeit the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016 for other reasons (the Zika virus). And that after the worldwide triumphs of 2018 (his record year), he hasn’t found success since March 2019 (Arnold Palmer Invitational, PGA Tour).
Nothing to do, not even this time. The Piedmontese will not fly to Japan where Italy will be represented by Guido Migliozzi, Giulia Molinaro, Lucrezia Colombotto Rosso and, probably (the official green light of the International Golf Federation is expected, after the request of the Italia Team), by Renato Paratore. That after winning a gold medal (in the individual competition) and a bronze medal (in tandem with Virginia Elena Carta) at the 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympic Games (China), is preparing to fly to Tokyo to chase a great result alongside of many world leaders.
