The 2016 Ryder Cup in Minnesota was a resounding success from a U.S. perspective.
The Americans rode the wave of big and boisterous crowds to their first win in the biennual competition against Europe since 2008. The reward for all those golf fans in Minnesota is an encore.
The PGA of America has awarded the 2028 Ryder Cup to Hazeltine National Golf Club, the first time a U.S. venue has hosted a second time. Hazeltine's selection nearly firms up the Ryder Cup schedule for the next decade. The European Tour has yet to select a venue for 2026, but all signs point to Adare Manor in southwest Ireland, where Irish billionaire J.P. McManus has spent millions remodeling the historic manor and Tom Fazio has modernized the parkland course originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. The course will reopen later this year. Turkey is also reportedly putting in a bid as well, according to the Irish Golf Desk.
