Since Medinah, the golfing world had not just evolved; it had turned on its head. There was a new order. The old were fading, injured, out of form, unable to maintain winning habits. The younger generation had taken over. And, when it came to the showdown, McGinley's masterplan came to fruition. Telling the inside story of an enthralling contest, this is a fascinating look at the pivotal moment that established Europe as the undisputed leaders in the Ryder Cup.
