The Ryder Cup has become one of the world’s greatest sporting events. Every two years, 24 of the best players from Europe and the United States go head-to-head in match play competition. Drama, tension, incredible golf, camaraderie and sportsmanship are served in equal measure, captivating an audience of millions around the world. It’s an event that transcends sport, yet remains true to the spirit of its founder, Samuel Ryder.
Tyrrell Hatton won his fourth European Tour title after he came through a six-man play-off, played under floodlights, at the fourth extra hole, at the Turkish Airlines Open – a Rolex Series Event.
After his play-off victory over Xander Schauffele at the WGC-HSBC Champions, Rory McIlroy moved to the top of both the European and World Points lists in the race for Ryder Cup qualification.
