Padraig Harrington will lead Europe in the September Ryder Cup
Captain of the Europe Ryder Cup Padraig Harrington insists that a report postpone the tournament to 2021 & # 39; fictional stuff & # 39; is.
According to media reports, the tournament would be moved due to the coronavirus outbreak and hidden calendar.
This year's contest will take place September 25-27 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.
"September is still a long way off, so the situation hasn't changed at all at this stage," Harrington told Today FM.
Europe hopes to keep the cup later this year after an emphatic 17½-10½ victory over the United States at Le Golf National in Paris in 2018.
Following media reports, both teams released a short statement on Twitter that claims of deferment were "inaccurate".
"I know there are rumors and they had to make a statement saying there was no change, but there is absolutely no change," Harrington added.
"I'm on the inside of these things. Normally you look at & # 39; anonymous source says this … & # 39; but now that I'm on the inside you go & # 39; wow, it really is made-up stuff & # 39; ".
The wave calendar has been ravaged by the coronavirus outbreak. After canceling the Players Championship last week, Augusta National postponed the Masters before the PGA Tour cleared the tournament schedule until May 10, also suspending the PGA Championship.
Triple big winner Harrington added, "There was a big announcement (on Tuesday) by the PGA Tour about events canceled until May and now the PGA Championship has also been postponed, so that's as far as they go – they took steps until mid-May. "
