The Ryder Cup is a biennial golf competition between teams from Europe and the United States. Contests involve various match play scenarios between players selected from two teams of twelve.
With eight foursomes, eight fourballs and 12 singles matches, all being played over 18 holes, the tournament is unrivalled in terms of its intensity, excitement and overall spectacle for the common sports fan.
The winner of each match scores a point for their team, with 1/2 a point each for any match that is tied.
With the competition just days away, GiveMeFootball has set about creating two Premier League teams - one to represent Europe, and one for America (both North and South, to give our cross-Atlantic cousins a chance).
Check out how the squads compare below, and feel free to leave a comment!
Joe Hart | Manchester City
One of the most consistent goalkeeper's in the Premier League, and has cemented himself as England's No.1.
Glen Johnson | Liverpool
The marauding full-back is great going forward, and equally adept on either flank.
Nemanja Vidic | Manchester United
The Serbian stopper is a tower of strength at the back, and a commanding presence in any team.
Vincent Kompany | Manchester City
A born winner, Kompany was one of the club's standout performers in their title-winning campaign last season.
Ashley Cole | Chelsea
Widely regarded as the best left-back in world football, the Blues defender has been at the top of his game for many years.
Steven Gerrard | Liverpool
One of the Premier League's most influential players, Gerrard is a leader of men.
Santi Cazorla | Arsenal
The silky Spaniard has quickly established himself as the Gunners' creative spark in midfield. Everything good, goes through him.
Gareth Bale | Tottenham
Frequently rampaging down the left-wing, the Welshman's attacking threat is vital.
Eden Hazard | Chelsea
Arriving for a paltry £32million fee, Hazard is already looking like money well spent for Chelsea.
Wayne Rooney | Manchester United
Main man for club and country, Rooney's ability to win a match on his own, makes him a must have for any squad.
Robin van Persie | Manchester United
The Dutchman's form over the past 12 months speaks for itself - guaranteed goals!
WILDCARD: Fernando Torres | Chelsea
Torres is not in the form of his life, but his undoubted ability and big-game experience makes him a suitable wildcard.
Brad Friedel | Tottenham
At 41, Friedel is no spring chicken, but remains one of the most reliable custodian's in the Premier League.
Rafael | Manchester United
The Brazilian seems to improve with every game, and has even chipped in with two goals already from defence this season!
David Luiz | Chelsea
After penning a new five-year deal at Stamford Bridge last week, Luiz will continue to grow.
Fabricio Coloccini | Newcastle
The South American stopper is good on the ball, and boasts leadership qualities from his time captaining the Magpies.
Andre Santos | Arsenal
With little competition for a place at left-back, Santos is a reliable addition to the squad.
Antonio Valencia | Manchester United
The Ecuadorian is a great provider of goals, and highly-rated by all of his team-mates at Old Trafford.
Ramires | Chelsea
Not your typical Samba star, Ramires' direct approach and tireless running will be important in any side.
Lucas Leiva | Liverpool
Injury-problems have halted his progress, but when fit Lucas is one of the brightest midfield talents in the country.
Sergio Aguero | Manchester City
With over 20 goals in his debut season in the Premier League, Aguero has proved he can be a match for any defence in the land.
Luis Suarez | Liverpool
Despite his off-field problems, there's no denying Suarez's ability on the pitch. He is one of Anfield's leading men.
Clint Dempsey | Tottenham
Able to play in a variety of positions, Dempsey's versatility is invaluable, and he will also provide goals.
WILDCARD: Carlos Tevez | Manchester City
The journeyman striker has scored goals wherever he's been. Rejuvenated this season, Tevez is definitely worth a gamble!
