Rowdy Bethpage to host Ryder Cup

  • Print

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- The Ryder Cup and PGA Championship are coming to Bethpage Black.

The PGA of America announced Tuesday that Bethpage Black will host the rowdiest event in golf in 2024, and the 2019 PGA Championship. The public course at a Long Island state park has developed a well-earned reputation for loud and boisterous fans, having played host to U.S. Open championships in 2002 and 2009. Last year, the Barclays was held there as part of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

PGA of America president Ted Bishop says players have asked for years about playing the Ryder Cup at Bethpage.

He said he was watching Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler during a practice round at the 2010 Ryder Cup, when Bethpage Black came up. Bishop says Fowler mused, "Can you imagine what a great home-field advantage and how intimidating a Bethpage Black Ryder Cup would be?"

"This venue, this course, this city is going to take the Ryder Cup to a place that it's never been before," Bishop said.
