    -With Governor Evers extending the Safer at Home Order until May 26, it pretty much has put an end to spring high school sports, but it hasn’t put an end to the Ryder Cup.
    The 43rd Ryder Cup Matches will be held from September 25 to 27, on the Straits course at Whistling Straits southeast of Kiel. Team Europe is the reigning cup holder after its 17½–10½ victory over Team USA in 2018.
    Due to a number of tournaments, including a number of majors, shifting their schedules due to the coronavirus pandemic (including one major being cancelled and one being moved to November), the Ryder Cup is scheduled to take place only five days after the final round of the rescheduled U.S. Open. The Professional Golfers Association announced last week that they hope to resume their PGA Tours in June without spectators.
    -One pro golf event in Wisconsin that has fallen victim to coronavirus is Steve Stricker’s American Family Insurance Championshipslated for June 11-13, with other tournament events in the week prior.
    “It was not an easy decision by any means,” Madison resident and tournament host Steve Stricker said in a video message. “We know how much this event means to the community, the fans, the volunteers and the sponsors. We all look forward to it, even the golfers, we look forward to it. But given the mandates ... we just felt like it was in the best interest of everybody and the safety of everybody to cancel this year’s event.”
    This year’s tournament was supposed to be played June 5-7, earlier than the late June dates it occupied in its first four years in existence. The shift was in part to accommodate pro players who were playing in the U.S. Open, which was supposed to take place June 18-21. Earlier this month, the U.S. Open was pushed back to Sept. 17-20.
    -The East Shore Baseball League was set to open in mid-May, but is on hold until Gov. Evers gives the all-clear. The ESL remains at nine teams with Howards Grove the defending champion.
    -As of right now, the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Senior All-Star Football games in Oshkosh are still on for mid-July. Kiel’s Mitch Mahler, Hunter Scharenbroch and Ian Clark will play in the games for Division 4-7 schools.
