All about the
As a major
golf event that occurs every two years, "The World Cup
of Golf" pits Team USA against Team Europe
in a heady mix of national pride and professional sportsmanship.
In 2025, it's Team America's turn to host the international tournament which means Team Europe will have some catching up to do at the New York venue, which is already familiar to a majority of American players. Can the American team their advantage and regain the Ryder Cup trophy it lost to Team USA in 2023?
Ryder Cup rules & scoring
During the Ryder Cup matches, the pressure really mounts when individual players are required to let go of their media "star" status and work together to win.
If one player is performing badly, the rest have to grin and bear it for the best possible outcome - namely, scoring a point for the team.
Speaking of points, Ryder Cup rules adhere to a match play format that rewards the number of points a team wins, rather than the shots players take individually.
In the end, it all adds up to victory if each team can really pull together. A match is worth one point and whichever team first accumulates 14½ points wins the Cup.
