About this Article

The Ryder Cup is on target to provide an immediate economic influx of about $130 million for businesses in the region, including about $80 million for DuPage County businesses, officials say. And long-term benefits could be in store as local officials woo visiting executives from around the world. "The Ryder Cup puts DuPage County on the world stage," said Greg Bedalov, CEO of Choose DuPage.
