This Friday sees the beginning of the 41st Ryder Cup, and the weekend-long event will test the wits of the players from Europe against their cup rivals, and favourites, from the USA team.
This year's competition is being held at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota, with America and the European team already making their ways across the Atlantic to prepare for what seems to be a tough weekend.
Europe enters the competition as cup holders, having won for a third consecutive time in 2014 in Scotland.

One player that will be looking to lead the European team to glory will be Rory McIlroy, who is competing in his fourth Ryder Cup.
But before being able to work his magic on the golf course, the Northern Irishman was part of a magic show himself, during some light-hearted night time entertainment which saw English magician Dynamo visit the players after returning from a long day of preparation.
On Tuesday night, Dynamo seemingly left McIlroy amazed after a video from twitter showed the Tour Champion participate in one of Dynamo’s magic routines.
The video started with Rory handing back a deck of cards after removing one and placing it in his back pocket, which both himself and Dynamo hadn't seen.
You can see the trick in the video below.
From then on, Dynamo proceeds to ask McIlroy to mentally cut his way through a deck of cards until left with one, which then turns out to be the same card removed earlier.
Presenting the ace of hearts (the card that he himself removed prior to the video) to the room, Rory is left dumbfounded, while his teammates cheer on after seeing his reaction.
