Sweden out of 2018 Ryder Cup running
Monday, March 29, 2010
WENTWORTH, England – Sweden is withdrawing from trying to stage the Ryder Cup in 2018.
The European Tour has been negotiating with six European golf federations for the hosting rights. The presence in the world’s top 25 of Henrik Stenson and Robert Karlsson had made Sweden among the favorites to win the contract to be announced in 2011.
The Swedish Golf Federation said it was impossible to find sponsors to host European events at Senior Tour, Main Tour and Challenge Tour levels in the years leading up to 2018.
