Book Summary

The Ryder Cup is one of the most hotly contested events in the sporting calendar. And with Europe's incredible comeback in 2012 still fresh in the memory, the 2014 edition - staged at Scotland's famous Gleneagles Hotel - promises to be another classic, creating fever-pitch pressure for the players and unrivalled excitement for the fans. But this is no exhibition match - nothing short of glory and national pride is at stake, all played out in front of a global TV audience and baying crowds.

This beautifully illustrated book tells the full story of this great tournament, from its beginnings in 1927 when Great Britain played the USA for a trophy provided by seed merchant Samuel Ryder, to the post-war dominance of the US team, to the introduction of European golfers into the GB and Ireland team in the late 1970s, to the titanic, see-saw struggles of the modern day. It looks at each of the Ryder Cups, and features the great players, pairings, captains and courses along the way.

A book for sports fans everywhere, The Ryder Cup is the definitive history chronicling the excitement and prestige of this global sporting event.
