2018 Ryder Cup Matches
Sep 27 - 30, 2018
Course Rotates: Le Golf National
The Ryder Cup Matches is a golf competition that takes place every two years, between teams of golfers representing the U.S. and Europe.
The Ryder Cup is managed by the PGA of America and the PGA European Tour. The Ryder Cup is played every other year and the golf venue varies each time.
Created as a competition between the best golfers in the United States and Great Britain, the Ryder Cup is named for Samuel Ryder, a seed merchant who didn't pick up a golf club until after his 50th birthday but nevertheless helped shape what is today one of the world's most prestigious sporting events. The formats and the teams have changed through the years, and so has the level of competition.
The Ryder Cup has been held every two years since (with the exception of 2001, due to the terrorist attacks in the U.S., and 1937-47 due to World War II), and foursomes and singles match play have been a part of the competition since the very beginning.
Ryder Cup Brief History
While the Ryder Cup matches officially began in 1927, informal competitions between teams of American and British golfers go back a few years earlier.
In 1921, teams of British and American golfers played a series of matches at Gleneagles in Scotland, prior to the British Open at St. Andrews. The British team won, 9-3. The following year, 1922, was the first year of competition in the Walker Cup, an event pitting American and British amateurs in match play competition.
With the Walker Cup founded for amateur golfers, talk turned to the desire for a similar event limited to professionals. A London newspaper report from 1925 mentioned that Samuel Ryder had proposed an annual competition between British and American professionals. Ryder was an avid golfer and a businessmen who had made his fortune by selling seeds. Ryder commissioned a trophy for the competition - what came to be the actual Ryder Cup itself.
