Jack Nicklaus
Jack Nicklaus proved surplus to requirements for the US
The low point for Great Britain and Ireland in the Ryder Cup came when Ben Hogan led a team without their best player, Jack Nicklaus, to the biggest win in the competition's history.

Nicklaus was ineligible as he was yet to complete his five-year period as a member of the PGA, but the US had simply too much talent for their opponents.

Gardner Dickinson and Arnold Palmer were unbeaten in their five matches as the US romped to victory.

By now, the Ryder Cup itself was in danger as television companies and many American players lost interest. A gripping encounter was needed soon.
