Ryder Cup 2012

The Ryder Cup is arguably golf’s biggest and best event and the 2012 edition, at Medinah Golf and Country Club in Chicago, promises to be no different.

The Americans go into the biennial event as slight favourites in the eyes of the bookies, but in all honesty, if the event were being played on neutral soil, it’d be impossible to try and call. Both teams are in incredible form.

Throw in two determined and passionate captains in Davis Love III and Jose Maria Olazabal, and a tough, long, risk-reward golf course, and it is sure to be a Ryder Cup to match 1987 at Muirfield Village and the 1999 clash at Brookline.
