Experience The 2014 Ryder Cup

Ryder Cup 2014 Packages 23rd - 28th September 2014

Poulter and Woods in the Ryder Cup

The Ryder Cup has seen two of the most exciting tournaments in the history of golf's premier team event - at both Celtic Manor in 2010 and Medinah in 2012. Whether it was McDowell's heroics to claim victory in Wales, or Olazabal's magnificent 12 who recorded what will undoubtedly be coined Seve Sunday in snatching victory from the claws of defeat in turning over a 10-6 deficit to win 14.5 - 13.5 at Medinah.

Whilst we will always look back at these great golfing spectacles, we must look forward with great anticipation at the prospect of the 2014 Ryder Cup which will take place at one of Europe's finest golf resorts, Gleneagles.

Set in stunning Perthshire countryside, the Ryder Cup will return to Europe where the heroes of 2012 - Poulter, Kaymer, Rose and McIlroy will be hoping to hold onto Europe's most coveted prize - the Samuel Ryder Trophy.

The 2014 Ryder Cup will take place over the PGA Centenary Course which was designed by 18 time Major Champion Jack Nicklaus. As a regular stop on the European Tour for the Johnnie Walker, The European Team should feel at home at this course, despite its American heritage.

The best sporting event I've ever been to. We never could have seen Europe coming back on Sunday as they did and it made for some amazing viewing. Thanks for your help in organising everything it all went seemlessly.

The result was more than we could have ever expected, the atmosphere on Sunday was something I'll never forget and look forward to booking my place for Gleneagles.

Thanks to all at Your Golf Travel for making my week in Chicago as great as it was. The transfers were efficient and the hotel was the perfect base to explore the sights and sounds in the evening. The golf was obviously first class - still can't believe that fight back!


About The Ryder Cup

Within easy reach of both Edinburgh and Glasgow, Gleneagles will welcome visitors from across the globe hoping to experience the unique atmosphere that the Ryder Cup brings. With the last two contests being separated by just one point, the Ryder Cup has become one of the most fiercely contested team events. With Europe coming out on top courtesy of a 8 foot putt by Germany's Martin Kaymer, it'll be safe to say that the European's have experienced the rub of the green in recent years but the American's will come back hungrier than ever with a will to win that will make for a fantastic event.

Your Golf Travel can offer a host of tournament packages to watch, stay and enjoy the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. Reserve your package now which include five nights accommodation, tickets to Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as return transportation.

Future Ryder Cup Venues
The Ryder Cup takes place every two years, so following this year's event at Gleneagles it will return to the USA in 2016 when Hazeltine National in Chaska, Minnesota will play host. As one of just two clubs in the US to have hosted every tournament offered by the USGA and PGA of America, it will no doubt provide a memorable test for the best golfers from America and Europe. Register your interest now and we'll be in touch when our packages go on sale.

2018 Ryder Cup Venue
Le Golf National, Paris, France
With excellent transport links from across Europe this looks set to be a fantastic event. Golfers will be familiar with the course with it being a regular stop on the European Tour for the Open de France played each July.

2020 Ryder Cup Venue
Whistling Straits, Kohler, Wisconsin
Following its triumphant hosting of the 2010 US PGA Championship, which saw Martin Kaymer conquer in a play-off over Bubba Watson, Whistling Straits will provide an excellent challenge combined with some of the finest views in golf.

Tournament Overview
The Ryder Cup has been played 39 times with this year's competition being the 40th. It gets its name from English businessman Samuel Ryder who donated the trophy. The trophy and the glory are the main attraction as the players receive no prize money.

Until 1979 the European team consisted solely of golfers from Great Britain and Ireland but it was argued that the tournament wasn't competitive enough because of the number of American wins. By opening the tournament to European golfers the likes of talented Seve Ballesteros, Antonio Garrido and Bernhard Langer helped to make the Ryder Cup what it is today.

Historical wins
Until 1979's team changes the United States had won 18 out of 22 matches with the Great Britain team taking home just three wins and then tying on one.

When continental European golfers were introduced to the team, out of the 17 matches played since 1979, Europe has won nine to the United States' seven. They've tied once too. When it's a tie the last team to win holds onto the Cup.

Team Selection
In 1969 the team size increased from 10 players to 12. At this year's Ryder Cup each team will be made up of nine players who qualify based on their performance and then three players chosen by the captain.

The Captains
This year's captains are Paul McGinley for Europe and Tom Watson for USA.

Irishman McGinley famously holed a ten-foot putt on the 18th hole at the 2002 Ryder Cup at The Belfry against Jim Furyk. It won the Cup for Europe. He's been Team Europe's vice-captain for the last two Ryder Cups and this year takes the helm.

Tom Watson hails from Kansas City. His wins have included eight major championships - five Opens, two Masters and one U.S. Open. He was also captain at the 1993 Ryder Cup at The Belfry whre he captained his side to victory.
