Turkey back in race to stage Ryder Cup in 2022

The Associated Press

VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) Turkey is back in the race to host the 2022 Ryder Cup, a day after announcing the withdrawal of its bid because it would require cutting down up to 15,000 trees to accommodate grandstands at its chosen course.

The European Tour said Thursday that Turkey was one of six nations to formally declare their intention to submit a bid for the event, along with Austria, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

The tour says Denmark has pulled out of the running.

The six countries will host meetings and inspection visits by European Ryder Cup officials by April 30, 2015. That is the date formal bids must be submitted.

The winning bid will be announced in 2015.
