Usually considered allies in most walks of life, America and Europe are rivals in the golfing world. Normally regarded as an individual sport, the team ethic takes over when it comes to the historic Ryder Cup.

The origins of the competition date backs to the 1920s, when it initially pitted the might of America against Great Britain. However, as it became dominated by the USA, Britain were permitted to link-up with the rest of the continent in 1979.
