Ryder Cup History

The Ryder Cup is a golf event that features two teams from the United States and Europe going head-to-head over a three-day period. Each team consists of 12 golfers. Those golfers are selected to the team either on rankings or by the team's captain.

The golfers from each team will compete against one another in 8 foursome matches, 8 fourball matches and 12 single matches. Each match is worth one point and if a match ends up tied then both teams are awarded a half-point.

The first team to earn 14 points will win the Ryder Cup. If both teams are tied after all the matches are played, then the team that won the previous year will be considered the winner and will keep the Ryder Cup.

The Ryder Cup takes place every two years and the venue is alternated between golf courses in the U.S. and Europe. The 2014 Ryder Cup will take place at the PGA Centenary Course from the Gleneagles Hotel near Auchterarder in Perth and Kinross, Scotland.
