WITH A LITTLE HELP, THE PGA OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF THE RYDER CUP TO MINNESOTA IN 2028

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (March 26, 2018) –The PGA of America announced today, with a sweeping social-media assist from the gold medal-winning U.S. Men’s Curling Team, that Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota will host the 47th Ryder Cup in 2028.
Hazeltine — site of the U.S. Ryder Cup Team’s 17-11 victory in 2016 — will become the first American venue to host a second Ryder Cup. Four English courses have hosted multiple Ryder Cups: The Belfry (1985, ’89, ‘93, 2002); Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club (1961, ‘77); Royal Birkdale Golf Club (1965, ’69) and Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club (1933, ’37).
Four members of 2018 U.S. Curling team – skip John Shuster, vice skip Tyler George, second Matt Hamilton, and lead John Landsteiner – participated in the 30-second video spot, which blended equipment, athletic postures and traditions usually reserved for either golf or curling.
The video was posted this morning on RyderCup.comTwitter and Instagram, and culminates with the U.S. Curling Team sending a curling stone gliding down the ice (“sheet”) to the red circular target (“house”), where the iconic Ryder Cup Trophy is waiting to symbolically declare the Ryder Cup’s return to Minnesota in 2028.
Last month in South Korea, the Men’s Curling Team captured America’s first Olympic gold medal in the history of the sport.
Officials from the PGA of America and Hazeltine will gather on April 10 in Chaska to discuss the return of the Ryder Cup, which comes little more than 18 months after the completion of the 2016 event.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones in 1962 and enhanced by his son, Rees Jones, in 2002 and 2005, Hazeltine National Golf Club takes its name from nearby Lake Hazeltine. The par-72 layout blends the rolling hills, lakes, mature woods and prairies of the Upper Midwest and is consistently ranked amongst America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.
Hazeltine began its tradition of hosting major championships more than 50 years ago. Beyond the most recent Ryder Cup, it has hosted the U.S. Women’s Open (1966, ’77), the U.S. Open (1970, ’91), the U.S. Senior Open (1983) and the PGA Championship (2002, ’09).
Hazeltine is also scheduled to host its third women’s major championship, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, June 18-23, 2019.
