Ryder Cup The Ryder Cup
The Ryder Cup is a team event played every two years between Europe and America.

Each team uses 12 players for the three-day event. On the first two days the players play as pairs and on the final day they play one against one.

The first 10 players for each team are the ones who win the most money while playing in a set time period before the Ryder Cup. The team captain completes the team by picking two players of their choice, called wild cards.

The Ryder Cup was supposed to take place in September last year in Britain, but was put off for a year because American golfers were unwilling to fly so soon after 11 September.
