Germany, Spain, Italy and Austria have each hosted Bid Inspection visits from a delegation of Ryder Cup Europe officials – led by Ryder Cup Director Richard Hills – as part of their quest to host The 2022 Ryder Cup. But here’s how the Spanish are supporting their bid.
Commenting on Spain’s candidacy for The 2022 Match, Gonzaga Escauriaza, President of the Royal Spanish Golf Federation (RFEG), said: “Our bid is centered on three concepts – History, Certainty and Passion. No other country in mainland Europe has contributed more to European and Ryder Cup golf, and our proposed venue is one of the finest and best linked in Europe. Furthermore, our bid sponsors share a unified passion to bring this, one of the world’s biggest sporting events, to Catalunya in 2022.”
Ryder Cup Europe, alongside a panel of independent experts, is currently analysing the four bids. An announcement of the successful host country and venue for The 2022 Ryder Cup is expected this autumn. It certainly looks like Spain is in it to win it.
