One of the golf world’s premier events is the Ryder Cup. The Ryder 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 all of the top golfers in PGA Europe (Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Italy and Germany).
The Ryder Cup alternates its location every two years between the U.S. 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. It’s a battle of pride, and combines both teamwork and comradery that you can see when you watch the tournament. Not many American golf fans will ever forget moments like Justin Leonard’s 45-foot putt in 1999 on the 17th hole that would end up winning the tournament for the United States. Be there and witness these amazing moments in person! Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Ryder Cup tickets.

Ryder Cup Event Guide
What days should I get tickets for when I go to the Ryder Cup?
The first few days of the tournament are practice days, before competitive play begins on Friday. We’ll always suggest weekly passes to get the best bang for your buck, but if you can only take in one round, Sunday is when the singles matches are played, and you can see a team crowned champion at the end of the day.
When is the next time the tournament will be in the United States?
The tournament will be played in the U.S. in 2020 when it is at The Straits on Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
What players are usually picked to play for each team?
While the eight golfers automatically qualify for the team by finishing in the top eight of the Ryder Cup USA standings, the captain chooses four alternates. Players such as Phil Mickelson or Bubba Watson should be expected to be chosen if they do not qualify.
