*The Ryder Cup is a tournament that pits the best US Golfers against the best of Europe
*Location: Gleneagles in Perthshire Scotland on a course (the PGA Centenary) designed by Jack Nicklaus (very famous golfer)
*The Euros seem the have an advantage with Martin Kaymer (who won the US Open) and Rory McIlroy (who won The British Open and PGA Championship) on their side. (See Photo of McIlroy and partner Sergio Garcia left)
*Tiger Woods is not on team USA. No one is sure if this actually makes a difference, this year. He’s out as he has a persistent back-injury that has affected him most of the season
*Not even going to try and explain the format, but all you need to know is they are playing a total of 28 matches over three days. That’s a lot of golf.
