Every two years, the Ryder Cup pits teams from Europe and the US against each other in a sport usually associated with individual play. But with national pride at stake, the best players from both sides of the Atlantic fight for a place on their respective teams. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of golf's most unique tournament, from its humble beginnings in 1927 to the titanic struggles of the modern day. This updated edition of The Ryder Cup—which includes Europe’s 2014 victory at the famous Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland—is the definitive history of this prestigious international sporting event.
