Dates for 2010 Ryder Cup in Wales Announced


LONDON, England -- The Ryder Cup dates for the 2010 matches in Wales will take place during the week of September 27 through October 3, the European Tour announced Wednesday.
The biennial competition between Europe and the United States will be staged at the Celtic Manor Resort. It will mark the first time the Ryder Cup matches will be held in Wales.
'This marks the point at which we move from the strategic planning stage, which commenced as soon as Wales won the bid to host the event, into the detailed delivery stage which will take us right up to the autumn of 2010,' said Welsh Assembly First Minister Rhodri Morgan in a release by the European Tour.
The 2008 Ryder Cup is scheduled for September 19-21 at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky.
Europe won last year's edition at The K Club in Ireland, 18 1/2 - 9 1/2, capturing the coveted trophy for the third straight time.
