English golfer Tommy Fleetwood hopes September’s Ryder Cup can act as a “light at the end of the tunnel” for the world of sport following the coronavirus pandemic.
Golf majors the Masters and PGA Championship have already been postponed.
However, a decision is yet to be made on the Ryder Cup, which takes place every two years and will see a team from Europe take on the United States.
“I think there are certain events that would be an amazing torch for a turn in how the world is getting on and the Ryder Cup would be one of them that is like a shining light at the end of the tunnel,” Fleetwood, the world number 10, told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“The Ryder Cup is an event people dream about (playing) and sometimes it can only happen once.”
The Ryder Cup is scheduled to begin on 25 September at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin.
