The Ryder Cup is one of the most hotly contested events in the sporting calendar. And with Europe's incredible comeback in 2012 still fresh in the memory, the 2014 tournament - to be held in the UK - promises to be another classic, creating fever-pitch pressure for the players and unrivalled excitement for the fans. But this is no exhibition match - nothing short of glory and national pride is at stake, all played out in front of a global TV audience and baying crowds. This beautifully illustrated book tells the full story of this great tournament, from its beginnings in 1927 when Great Britain played the USA for a trophy provided by seed merchant Samuel Ryder, to the post-war dominance of the US team, to the introduction of European golfers into the GB and Ireland team in the late 1970s, to the titanic, see-saw struggles of the modern day. It looks at each of the Ryder Cups, and features the great players, pairings, captains and courses along the way. A book for sports fans everywhere, The Ryder Cup is the definitive history chronicling the excitement and prestige of this global sporting event.
