Ryder Cup Free Bets

Once every two years 12 Europeans and 12 Americans do battle for the Ryder Cup. Although the four Majors throughout the year are seen as the sport’s pinnacle and that upon which the game’s great players are judged, many of golf’s most memorable moments are ingrained in Ryder Cup history.

While the Presidents Cup, which pits America against the Rest of the World, follows a similar format, the Ryder Cup evokes emotions and passion like no other golfing event. The venue for the biennial competition alternates between Europe and the U.S.A. with raucous home support often playing a pivotal role in the outcome.

Ryder Cup - Europe v USA

The tournament is played over a match play format. Each Ryder Cup contested consists of eight foursomes matches, eight fourball matches and 12 singles matches, with all matches played over 18 holes. The winner of each match earns a point for their team, with a 1/2 point going to each player for any match that is tied after 18 holes.

Ryder Cup free bets can be used to bet on any of the 28 individual matches throughout the event, as well as who will win the Ryder Cup, which player will score the most points for their team, which player will score the winning point and even which players will be named in their respective teams.

The 2012 Ryder Cup will be played at the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois, United States from September 28 to September 30.


"I trust that the effect of this match will be to influence a cordial, friendly and peaceful feeling throughout the whole civilized world." - Samuel Ryder
