(ANSA) – ROME, September 23 – Presentation of the cup, video story with the most important photos of the event. Then the choir “USA”. Then the players’ wives (“waz”) in white (the pashmina is gold), the European wives, and the Americans in black. Then the procession of heroes, ready for battle.
In Kohler, Wisconsin, there was no shortage of spectacle at the opening ceremony of the 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup. At Whistling Straits Golf Course, awaiting the games of the world’s big names, the parade had already begun. As well as a challenge, not yet on the field but on stage. The US captain, Wisconsin-born Steve Stryker, was very excited.
“This – he said – is my home. It’s good to be here, anticipating a great sporting fight.” His counterpart, Padreig Harrington, is focused and motivating. “It’s a special day full of meaning. It’s good to see the fans here, because there is no Ryder Cup without fans,” he explained.
The opening ceremony will be moderated by American comedian Rob Riggle and journalist Nichelle Turner. While Jim Richerson, President of the American League, wanted in his speech to emphasize “the importance of this moment, which comes after difficult years imposed by the health emergency.” And now word is moving on to the phenomenon of “The Green”, ready to shine a light on a global event through their play.
