AUGUSTA, Georgia – (Sports Satire) – The Ryder Cup has been in existence for 95 years, and the powers-that-be, have finally decided to get with the program and correct the misspelling of the thropy's name.
Yes, the PGA officials state that it was originally named after Samuel Rudy Ryder, a Swiss shoe cobbler, but it is time to give the golf tournament the respect that it richly deserves and change the name.
The PGA Governing Committee (PGAGC) voted 13 to 2 to make the change effective immediately.
The committee reports that all of the European and American golfers totally agree with the change, except for French pro golfer Jean Jean DuPoo, who says he threw his set of gold clubs in the English Channel.
SIDENOTE: The PGA has already contacted the company that makes the Ryder Cup trophies, which will now be the Rider Cup trophies and they will update the change with the upcoming 2022 Rider’s Cup Tournament.
