Europe captain Padraig Harrington says it would be better to stage the Ryder Cup on schedule this September with a shortened qualification period than postpone the biennial showpiece. Paul Casey, a member of the winning Europe team in France in 2018, has called for the tournament to be put back 12 months. Three-time major winner Harrington is set to skipper Europe at Whistling Straits in the United States and would rather the event took place this year, even if it means changing the qualification criteria.

Jin Young Ko figures to be plenty rested whenever the LPGA Tour resumes. Ko left the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Florida, on Nov. 24 as the No. 1 player in women's golf, capping off her four-win, two-major season as the LPGA player of the year and winner of the Vare Trophy for lowest scoring average. The next event on the LPGA schedule is May 14 at the Pelican Women's Championship in Florida, and that's looking more doubtful with each rapid development of COVID-19.

Five-time major winner Phil Mickelson hinted that a possible one-on-one rematch against Tiger Woods is in the works, one that could be contested despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Mickelson, a left-hander who turns 50 in June, defeated Woods, a 15-time major winner and reigning Masters champion, in "The Match" -- a 2018 pay-per-view, winner-take-all duel for $9 million at Las Vegas. Asked in a Twitter chat Sunday night about the chances for a rematch with Woods, Mickelson tweeted, "Working on it."

The coronavirus has wreaked havoc across the sporting landscape. Starting this week a number of athletes from multiple sports tell us how their worlds have been turned upside down and how they are dealing with the situation, both as sportspeople and in their personal lives. Less than two weeks ago I won my first tournament as a professional golfer at the South African Women’s Open, in what was my first event on the Ladies’ European Tour. Due to coronavirus all of the golf courses have had to close, really limiting what practice I can do. So I am trying to organise a net for my back garden, so I can practice from home. Things have changed very quickly from being on the road with multiple tournaments planned to all of a sudden being at home. During normal circumstances I tend to practice alone anyway so that won’t be something I will struggle with in the coming weeks. I had been carrying on as usual while the golf courses were still open, but now I have to adapt as they have been shut down. I am glad I really enjoy practicing putting because I am lucky enough to have a mat I can set up in my home, so that is something I can still do lots of. One thing that has taken some getting used to is being at home in Berkhamsted with my parents and younger sister Abigail a few weeks earlier than planned. Being away for the past four years on a golf scholarship at Clemson University in South Carolina, and planning to be away a lot with golf, it’s not normal for me to be at home this much. It is a very busy house as my sister Abi is studying for her GCSEs and my dad works for a company that makes self-checkouts for supermarkets – that is an in-demand business – so there are lots of conference calls! It’s definitely a full house hold at the moment. My first win is still sinking in and it means a lot because I saw it as a way of getting my name out there. Being a rookie I don’t have any sponsors yet, so it is down to myself and my parents to fund my first season on the LET and Symetra Tour. The financial benefit of winning is really important, especially now that there won’t be any tournaments for a while. I am staying positive though and treating this as another pre-season. I now have a great opportunity to reset a little, practice basic skills and make sure that I am ready to go once the season restarts.

''The perspective I get from the working American point of view, it tunes me in to how big this is financially, the impact it's going to have,'' McDowell said on a conference call Wednesday.
