Junior Ryder Cup canceled due to travel issues

The 2021 Junior Ryder Cup was canceled Tuesday due to ongoing travel issues for the European team.

The event had been scheduled for Sept. 20-21 at Blue Mound Golf & Country Club in Wauwatosa, Wis.

“We are deeply disappointed for the talented young athletes on both sides of the Atlantic who were working hard to earn a place in this wonderful match,” read a joint statement issued by the PGA of America and Ryder Cup Europe.

First played in 1997, the Junior Ryder Cup features teams of six boys and six girls from the U.S. and Europe, all aged 18 years and under.

The Junior Ryder Cup will return in Italy in 2023.

The senior Ryder Cup competition between teams from the United States and Europe is Sept. 24-26 at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.

Plans remain on track to hold the contest with full spectator attendance, under the guidance of local public health authorities.
