Winds Damage Ryder Cup Site

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.
The Ryder Cup matches between the United States and Europe will
open Friday.
