Why is the Ryder Cup so popular?

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.

In 2001 the PGA European Tour decided to put out the Ryder Cup hosting rights from 2018 through 2030 to a competitive bid process throughout Europe. Ryder Cup Europe confirmed that six countries – France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden – had announced their intention to bid for the 2018 Ryder Cup.

The 2018 Ryder Cup was eventually awarded to France and will be played Le Golf National, Albatros Course in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, on the outskirts of Paris.

"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

2016 Ryder Cup

The USA claimed a convincing 17-11 victory to regain the Ryder Cup from Europe. Victory for the States was their first since 2008 as they were able to kill off any threat of a Europe comeback. Trailing 9 1/2 points to 6 1/2 after two days, Europe looked to be coming back in to the reckoning as they led in seven of the 12 singles matches. However when Patrick Reed beat Rory McIlroy the USA's grasp on proceedings began to strengthen once more. The trophy was eventually decided when Ryan Moore beat Lee Westwood on the 18th green for the decisive point.

Europe had been going for an unprecedented fourth successive triumph in this competition though they simply came up against a stronger and more determined US side. All 12 of the US team were able to claim at least one point whilst four of Europe's team drew blanks and it was always going to be a struggle to come from 4-0 down after the foursomes on the opening day.
