A history of the longstanding US-vs.-Europe golf competition—told by those who have participated. Includes numerous photos. Go inside the locker room for a history of the Ryder Cup as you’ve never experienced it before. Ranging from the origin matches that preceded the first official trans-Atlantic encounter between Britain and America at Worcester Country Club in 1927 through to the fortieth installment at Gleneagles, this is the history of the Ryder Cup—told by the men who have been there. With extensive research and exclusive new material garnered from interviews with players and captains from across the decades, Behind the Ryder Cup unveils the compelling truth of what it means to play in golf's biggest match-play event, where greats of the game have crumbled under pressure while others have carved their names into sporting legend.
