The Ryder Cup schedule has been altered by tournament officials following Friday’s lengthy rain delay.
The Ryder Cup schedule has been altered by tournament officials following Friday’s rain delay of more than seven hours at Celtic Manor.
In order to try to finish to planned on Sunday evening, the second session of play will now comprise six foursome matches instead of the usual four, meaning all 12 players on both sides will be involved.
The third session of play will then comprise two foursomes and four fourball matches with the standard 12 singles matches to follow.
European Tour chief executive George O’Grady said: “This all depends on the sky, we don’t have a good forecast for Sunday but they are not always accurate, and if that happens we will then roll into Monday, keeping the singles sacrosanct whatever happens.”
The new schedule still means a total of 28 points will be available, with eight decided by foursomes and eight by fourballs as usual.
