Ryder Cup in 2016 pushed back into October by Olympic Games

The 41st Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota will be held from September 30 to October 2, 2016, the PGA of America announced yesterday.

It will be the second time in six years the biennial event will finish in October, following on from Celtic Manor in 2010.

The Ryder Cup is part of a crowded summer schedule in 2016, with just one week between the Open Championship and the US PGA due to golf's return to the Olympic Games for the first time since 1904. The opening ceremony of the Olympics in Rio takes place on August 5.

The Open will be held at Royal Troon from July 14-17 with the US PGA at Baltusrol in New Jersey moving from its traditional August date for the first time since 1971 to July 28-31.
