The Ryder Cup is one of the most spirited, exciting and compelling events in sports. It spans over 95 years, involves the greatest players in the world and produces some of the greatest moments in the game. The competition officially began in 1927 when enterprising English seed merchant Samuel Ryder presented a gold cup that bears his name. The U.S. Team defeated Great Britain, 9 ½ to 2 ½, in the inaugural matches in Worcester, Massachusetts.Since then, the Ryder Cup has expanded to involve the finest players of Europe. The Ryder Cup has been interrupted only twice since World War II, with the 2001 matches postponed for a year after the 9/11 attack upon America and the 2020 matches rescheduled to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The 44th Ryder Cup will be held at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, Rome, Italy.
