Ryder Cup 2020 organisers say they are now 'very hopeful' of staging this year's USA vs Europe matches despite the global Coronavirus pandemic, but only if, Justin Thomas agrees to do TV commentary.

Thomas took the golfing world by storm on Sunday night instantly becoming the new David Feherty in a guest commentary role at the behind closed doors Tiger Woods vs Phil Mickelson "The Match 2." 

"The man has the voice of the angel," said European Captain Padraig Harrington. "Sure he's just one of the lads, and really witty and funny and all, it's like your best friend in the whole world is standing on the side of the green and he's talking to you but he also is best friends with the players so he's talking to them to.  Next thing I feel like the players are all best friends with me too, it's amazing.   Even if JT told stories for 8 hours a day during the Ryder Cup and just slagged Charles Barkley's fat arse everybody would be laughing their holes off and having great craic and nobody would notice there's no crowds, or focus on the fact that a golf event could be responsible for kicking a second wave of a worldwide pandemic .  I'd be all for it."

USA Captain Steve Stricker also said today that he thinks having Justin Thomas commentate so the Ryder Cup can go ahead "is a 100% great idea altogether" before adding "sure we'll find some other lad to play instead of him."  Stricker denied the heavily laden drone hovering over his house had anything to do with his comments.

More as it emerges.
