The Ryder Cup is a men’s team golf competition between Europe and the USA, first held in 1927. The current champions are Europe, having won the 2018 Ryder Cup 17½-10½ at Le Golf National in Paris, France. The next edition was due to be held in 2020 between the 25th – 27th September 2020, however this was postponed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The next edition will therefore take place between the 24th and 26th September 2021.
What is the format of the Ryder Cup?
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.
