Sunday, September 14, 2008. (AP) -- Strong wind felled a TV tower and some trees at Valhalla Golf Club on Sunday, five days before the start of the Ryder Cup.
Kerry Haigh, managing director of championships and business development for the PGA of America said the television tower fell on the 12th hole.
"The PGA of America is working to clean up all affected areas and is confident that when spectators arrive on Tuesday for the first full practice round, Valhalla will be ready for the biggest event in golf this year," Haigh said.
The Ryder Cup matches between the United States and Europe will open Friday.
