The Ryder Cup tells the complete story of one of the world's most prestigious sporting contests. Fiercely fought every two years, it uniquely pits teams from two golfing giants - Europe and the USA - against each other in a sport that is more usually associated with individual play.
This beautifully illustrated book tells the full story of this great tournament, from its humble beginnings in 1927, to the introduction of European golfers into what had been 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 chronicling of the history and prestige of this global sporting event.
