Dates for 2006 Ryder Cup confirmed

The 2006 Ryder Cup, to be played over the K Club's North course in Straffan, Ireland, will take place from September 22-24, the European Tour announced on Tuesday.

The matches were originally scheduled to be played in 2005, but were delayed by 12 months following the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

The Gaelic Athletic Association in Ireland has agreed to switch the date of the 2006 All Ireland Football Final, which is normally played on that weekend at Croke Park in Dublin, to accommodate the 36th Ryder Cup.

The Ryder Cup, contested every two years between Europe and the United States, is one of the most keenly anticipated occasions in global sport.

The U.S. lead the 76-year series by 24 victories to eight. Two of the matches, at Royal Birkdale in 1969 and at The Belfry in 1989, were tied.

Europe won last year's Ryder Cup at The Belfry in central England by 15-1/2 points to 12-1/2, after dominating the final-day singles matches.

The 35th Ryder Cup will be held at Oakland Hills, Michigan from September 17-19, 2004.
