Europe host USA at Gleneagles in Scotland in the 40th Ryder Cup, holding the trophy after ‘The Miracle at Medinah’ in 2012…
When: Friday 26th September, 07:35 tee-off time
Live Stream: NOW TV Sky Sports Day Pass
The most eagerly anticipated tournament in golf is upon us, with the 40th Ryder Cup set to begin on Friday morning, with the Fourballs teeing off at 07:35.
Europe are hosting the Americans this time around, and are strong favourites as a result. Two years ago in Medinah, Europe staged a legendary comeback on the final day to defeat the USA, who will be desperate to right the wrongs of 2012.
Paul McGinley’s Europe team boasts the world’s best in player Rory McIlroy, while Ryder Cup legend Ian Poulter and former world no.1 Lee Westwood have been smartly chosen as wildcards.
USA are without Tiger Woods, but actually have a higher average world ranking (16th to 18th) than their counterparts. Captain Tom Watson will be hoping the likeable Bubba Watson hits early form, along with the flamboyant Rickie Fowler, who has shaved ‘USA’ in his hair for the weekend!
Here’s the full squad for the competition:
