Sir: I was extremely disappointed at not being able to follow the progress of our Ryder Cup team battle for victory in the United States. I feel that the decision to sell the broadcast rights to a satellite channel was a mean and selfish act.
It displays a very egotistic attitude on behalf of the golfing authorities, who seem to have completely ignored the efforts of the BBC over the years in striving to promote this event and given it such excellent coverage.
If my support can so easily be dispensed with when the team is playing away, maybe I might not be so keen to find the time to support them at home.
