The Ryder Cup is a men’s team golf competition between Europe and the USA, first held in 1927. Originally contested between Great Britain and the United States, continental Europe was included in 1979. There have been a total of 43 matches played and since 1979, Europe have won eleven times and retained the Cup once in a tied match whilst the United States have won nine times.
The Ryder Cup takes place between a team of 12 golfers from Europe and 12 from the USA. On the Friday and Saturday, there are 4 fourballs matches in the morning and 4 foursomes matches in the afternoon. On the Sunday, there are 12 singles matches with all of the players taking part. Each match is played for one point, with the winner of the Ryder Cup being the team which scores most points. If the event finishes in a tie of 14 points, the Ryder Cup is retained by the current holders.
