The decision by Ryder Cup Europe caps a stellar week for Irish golf and its fans after Lowry's euphoric win at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland. Ireland hosted one previous Ryder Cup before, in 2006 at The K Club in County Kildare.
That was a record win for Europe by 18 ½ to 9 ½ points. The U.S. next hosts in 2020 at the Whistling Straits course in Wisconsin. Europe picked Italy to host in 2022, at the Marco Simone course near Rome, and the 2024 edition is at Bethpage Black in New York.
