European Tour clarifies Ryder Cup position after BREXIT


A spokesman for the PGA European Tour has explained how the UK vote to leave the European Union will impact on the European Tour. He says that the Tour are in the process of examining the implications but made  an important distinction.

The  United Kingdom is a geographical part of Europe (even if it will not be connected to it economically or politically). It is on this basis that the European Ryder Cup team is decided. The UK is geographically linked to the continent and the flag under which the players will play is a broad symbol of Europe as a whole.
