Europe regained the Ryder Cup with a 17.5-10.5 win over the US at Le Golf National in 2018

The BBC will continue to broadcast the Ryder Cup after extending the deal with the European Tour until 2022.

This means that the biennial match between Europe and the United States can be broadcast for free via TV, online and radio.

Whistling Straits in Wisconsin organizes the 2020 Ryder Cup, with Marco Simone from Italy organizing the event in 2022.

"We are happy that our audience can continue to enjoy such a special event," said Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport.

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

Rufus Hack, chief content officer of the European Tour, said: "The Ryder Cup is one of the world's most watche of sports events and this expansion of our long-standing relationship with the BBC means that viewers in the UK can reach the BBC

"We are delighted that viewers can also follow three of our Rolex Series events, including our seasonal DP World Tour Championship, Dubai."

The announcement was made on the first Day of the BMW PGA Championship 2019, which is the start of the qualification campaign for the 2020 Ryder Cup team in Europe.
