The BBC will continue to broadcast the Ryder Cup after extending its deal with the European Tour for TV highlights, radio commentary and clips on the BBC Sport website until 2022.

Whistling Straits in Wisconsin will host the 2020 version of the biennial match between Europe and the United States, with Italy's Marco Simone staging the 2022 event.

"We are pleased our audiences can continue to enjoy such a special event," said Barbara Slater, Director of BBC Sport.

The BBC has also retained television highlights of the BMW PGA Championship and Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open, and will now also show highlights of the European Tour season-ending DP World Tour Championship Dubai until 2022.

Rufus Hack, the European Tour's chief content officer, said: "The Ryder Cup is one of global sport's most-watched events and this extension to our long-term relationship with the BBC means viewers in the UK will be able to continue to follow it across the BBC.

"We're delighted viewers can also follow three of our Rolex Series events, including our season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai."

The announcement was made on the first day of the 2019 BMW PGA Championship, which marks the start of the qualification campaign for Europe's 2020 Ryder Cup team.
