PGA of America President Ted Bishop floated an idea brainstormed at PGA headquarters somewhere along the way: we own Valhalla, why not consider it as a permanent Ryder Cup venue and build Augusta-like infrastructure?
Kent Taylor reports on comments made after a Louisville Rotary Club meeting.
"I think one of the great visions for Valhalla would be, maybe there's a day down the road where Valhalla becomes the permanent site of a domestic Ryder Cup," said Ted Bishop, president of the PGA of America. "Where you can go in and you can do the kind of infrastructure that they have done at Augusta National, with the Masters. Think what you could do here, if you knew you were going to play the Ryder Cup every four years."
Mercifully the next American Ryder Cup date available is 2028, so we have time to mount the "They Tried This At The Belfry" campaign to keep the Ryder Cup moving around.
