The Ryder Cup has become one of the world’s greatest sporting events.
Every two years, 24 of the best players from the United States of America and Europe

drama, tension, sportsmanship and of course incredible golf which are all served up in
equal measure. It is an event that captivates a worldwide audience of millions, yet
remains true to the spirit of its founder, Samuel Ryder.
