Everything Know About The Ryder Cup
Since 1927 the Ryder Cup has been happening as a major golf event that occurs every two years. Recently Team USA has played against Team Europe in “The World Cup of Golf” for an intense mix of national pride.
The Ryder Cup was scheduled to be held in September 2020. But due to COVID-19, the event was postponed. From September 24 to 26, 2021 The Ryder Cup 2021 golf tournament will take place at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Wisconsin, USA. On three occasions, Whistling Straits hosted the PGA Championship in 2004, 2010, and 2015, and the U.S. Senior Open in 2007. This year the USA is going to host the tournament. Yeah, surely Team USA will take the home advantage for the revenge of recently lost 10.5-17.5 against Team Europe in 2018 at Le Golf National.
From 1927 to now the all-time standing of the matches is 26 wins for Team USA, 14 for Team Europe, two ties. Team USA captain is Steve Stricker and Padraig Harrington is captain of Team Europe. Both players will take their first captaincy in the 2021 Ryder Cup. However, Stricker was captain of Team USA in the 2017 Presidents Cup.
Team USA has decided to take 4 captain’s picks, plus the top 8 golfers on the United States Ryder Cup Points list for selection. On the contrary, for qualification Team Europe prefers to take the top 5 reigning players on the European Tour’s World Points list, the top 4 golfers on Dubai points list from September 2019 to September 2020, and also 3 captain’s picks.
You can visit RyderCup.com for the leading players on the points lists.
Ryder Cup Rules and Scoring
The tournament will be played over three days. From Friday 24 Sept. to Sunday 26 Sept. 2021 there will be doubles match play and singles match play. The first two days will be a double-match play. The final day will be a singles match play.

However, the pressure for individual players is far more different during the Ryder Cup matches than other tournament matches. And individual players need to work together to win the tournament. If one player can’t play well then the rest of the teammates have to hold the scores for the best possible outcome for the team.
By following Ryder Cup Rules, the rewards are given to the number of points a team wins, rather than the shots players take individually. There are 28 points in total matches. One team must need to score 14.5 points to win the Ryder Cup.
