Solheim Cup Moving to Even-Numbered Years
With the Ryder Cup now taking place in odd numbered years, the Solheim Cup announced that it will move to even-numbered years starting in 2024.
The Ryder Cup was moved due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“With the world sporting schedule changing so much due to current difficulties, we felt it was in the best interest of the Solheim Cup to return to an off-year rotation with the Ryder Cup. When the competition returns to the United States in 2024, I have no doubt fans will have an incredible opportunity to celebrate the best women golfers from the United States and Europe as they represent their home countries,” said Dennis Baggett, Executive Director of the Solheim Cup.
This year, the Solheim Cup will remain in 2021 with The Ryder Cup. Team Europe are the defending champions.
The Women’s version of the Ryder Cup was originally played in 1990 until 2002. However, when September 11 happened, the Ryder Cup was postponed and the Solheim Cup moved to odd-numbered years.
