An event like no other
The Ryder Cup is now regarded as one of the greatest sporting events on the calendar. Samuel Ryder, from whom the cup gets its name, was inspired by the 1926 match at Wentworth when Abe Mitchell teamed up with George Duncan to defeat the great Open champions, James Barnes and Walter Hagen. In the bar after the game, Ryder declared ‘We must do this again’. The rest is history...
When officially introduced in 1927, the two teams competing were originally Great Britain and the United States. The US got off to an impressive start, winning the first five Ryder Cup competitions. This dominance continued both before and after the Second World War, which led to the inclusion of European players in 1979, where the playing field became a lot more even.
In recent years, the Ryder Cup has brought to our screens some of the most memorable displays in the cup’s history. Many of you will have witnessed the ‘Miracle of Medinah’ in 2012, the United States' brilliant display at Hazeltine in 2016, and Europe’s demolition job at Le Golf National in 2018. Needless to say, the trend over the past decade has been a back-and-forth tussle with each team winning on their home soil.
Can Europe successfully defend its last win, or will Team USA win back-to-back home Ryder Cups for the first time since 1983 at PGA National? The 2021 Ryder Cup is set to be a truly mesmerising occasion!
Ryder Cup 2021 Venue - Whistling Straits
The Straits Course at Whistling Straits is known as one of the most dramatic and picturesque courses in the US. Situated in Wisconsin, bordering the beautiful Lake Michigan, the views across the water are simply magnificent and promise to be an amazing backdrop to the 2021 Ryder Cup.
Despite its natural ruggedness, the course was only opened for play in 1998, and since then has gone from strength-to-strength – having hosted the PGA Championship on four occasions (2004, 2007, 2010, 2015). Most will know the course for Jason Day’s memorable first major win when he fended off an in-form Jordan Spieth by three shots.
Pete Dye's design is critically acclaimed and known to be a modern classic, so it came as no great surprise when the layout was called upon to host in 2021. The risk and reward elements of this superb course will be perfect for matchplay, the course itself is impacted by strong winds with eight holes hugging the Lake Michigan shoreline with the added difficulty of tight fairways, which will be sure to keep both teams honest.
