THE RYDER CUP:
One of the golf world’s premiere events is the Ryder Cup. The Cup was first played in the United States in 1927. Its founder, Samuel Ryder, was an English golf enthusiast. For Ryder the idea of pitting the greats of Irish and British golf against the best golfers in the United States was a natural extension of his beloved game. In 1979 the challenge was changed to include PGA Europe (Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Italy and Germany), which included all of the top golfers in Europe.
The Ryder Cup alternates its location every two years between the US and Europe. Unlike the Masters, the Ryder Cup has no official home course. Previous Ryder Cups have been hosted by some of the most challenging and beautiful courses in Wales, the U.K., the United States and Spain. It is because the Ryder Cup attracts some of the best players in American and European professional golf that the event is so thrilling year after year.
This biannual event features three days of fantastic matches. Foursome, fourball and singles matches are played out with glory and drama by players representing each side of the Atlantic. Play begins on a Friday and continues through the following Sunday. Each year stories of the battles waged by the greats tantalize fans. Don’t miss your chance to see golf history in the making!
