Ryder Cup course damaged by storm

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Strong wind felled a TV tower and some trees at Valhalla Golf Club on Sunday, five days before the start of the Ryder Cup.

Kerry Haigh, managing director of championships and business development for the PGA of America said the television tower fell on the 12th hole.

“The PGA of America is working to clean up all affected areas and is confident that when spectators arrive on Tuesday for the first full practice round, Valhalla will be ready for the biggest event in golf this year,” Haigh said.

Less than a month after Hurricane Wilma, Trump International was ready for the 2005 ADT Championship. Vahalla’s damage has to be much less severe, I think the course will be ready in time for play.
