The Ryder Cup

The Ryder Cup

by Dale Concannon (Author)

Synopsis

The biennial Ryder Cup golf contest between the US and Europe is one of the biggest - and often most controversial - sporting events in the world. Last time round, at the Belfry in 2002, the British pulverised the Americans, after the 1999 debacle at Brookline when the stampeding American team prematurely celebrated victory before the last match was over. For golfers like Colin Montgomerie, their heroic and brilliantly consistent performances under pressure in the Ryder Cup rank as comparable achievements to the winning of a major title. Dale Concannon's book is the most readable account of this historic contest from its sedate beginnings in the 1920s, match by match, all the way to its present-day hysteria and nailbiting finishes.

Media Reviews
'It would be very easy to drool with sentimentality over the Ryder Cup. But, at the end of the day, it is simply two teams trying to knock seven bells out of each other in the nicest possible way' - Peter Alliss
