Golf’s biggest institution heads to France for the first time as Europe meet the US in the Ryder Cup. Few tournaments evoke the passion and drama of the Ryder Cup, as the world’s elite converge on Paris. From the famous ‘concession’ in 1969 to the Miracle at Medinah, the tournament has seen some of golf’s great moments. The US are reigning champions but have not won in Europe since 1993, so the stage is set for a tantalising weekend at Le Golf National.
The countdown is now on and what an event we are in store for. Both teams possess great strength, with a wealth of experience in the European team – Garcia, Knox, Poulter and McIllroy all likely to qualify vs the strength of the American team with seven major winners qualifying for the team.
European captain Bjorn will attempt to regain the coveted gold trophy from what is certain to be a powerful Team USA line-up.
The US have not won the Ryder Cup overseas for 25 years, and the great Dane will be pulling out all the stops to extend that record for another four years over three days of intense match play competition at Le Golf National, Paris, France.
The Irish contingent is strong with Harrington and McDowell making up half of Bjorn’s back room staff. Rory McIllroy, Paul Dunne and Shane Lowry likely to qualify but still being determined by the Majors.
