7 Ways to Experience the 2016 Ryder Cup without Attending

Whether or not you’re a golf fan, the 2016 Ryder Cup at Chaska’s Hazeltine National Golf Club is a momentous event for our area. I attended the Grand Opening at Hazeltine on Sunday afternoon and was amazed at the transformation of a site I drive by nearly every day. Flags whipped in the wind and impeccable signage lined the curving walkway that directed fans to an impressive entrance.
