Played every two years, originally between Great Britain and Ireland and the USA and, since 1979, between Europe and the USA, The Ryder Cup is golf's greatest tournament. Peter Pugh and Henry Lord present the latest edition of their Cup history, telling stories that include the world's most successful golfers - Walter Hagen, Henry Cotton, Gene Sarazen, Peter Alliss, Sam Snead, Max Faulkner, Ben Hogan, Dai Rees, Lee Trevino, Tony Jacklin, Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Tiger Woods and Colin Montgomerie. With photographs including Jacklin shaking hands with Nicklaus after the American had conceded a two-and-a half-foot putt to finalise a draw in 1969, this edition is published on the eve of September 2014's match at the beautiful Gleneagles.
Europe hold the trophy after their dramatic victory at Medinah Country Club, Chicago, in 2012. The Ryder Cup - described as `well-researched ... a historical but entertaining account of the Cup' by National Club Golfer - is the essential companion.
