RYDER CUP GOLF TOURNAMENT

Dates: Sep 26 - 28, 2014
Location: Pertshire, Scotland
Course: Gleneagles Hotel

The 40th Ryder will be held at Gleneagles, pertshire, Scotland and played from Sept. 26-28th, 2014. One of the last great sporting events founded on prestige rather than prize money, it's a biennial team competition featuring the best U.S. professional golfers vs. the best European pros. When the Ryder Cup matches come to Gleneagles in 2014 you could say that the tournament is returning to the place where it all began.

The Ryder Cup Matches involve various matchplay matches between players selected from two teams of twelve. Currently, the matches consist of eight foursomes matches, eight fourball matches and twelve singles matches. The winner of each match scores a point for their team, with ½ a point each for any match that is tied after 18 holes.

A foursomes match is a competition between two teams of two golfers. The golfers on the same team take alternate shots throughout the match, with the same ball. Each hole is won by the team that completes the hole in the fewest shots. A fourball match is also a competition between two teams of two golfers, but all four golfers play their own ball throughout the round rather than alternating shots, and each hole is won by the team whose individual golfer has the lowest score. A singles match is a standard matchplay competition between two golfers.

The Gleneagles Hotel, located one hour outside Edinburgh and set in grounds of 850 acres, is undergoing an £18 million redevelopment programme, partly in preparation for the 2014 Ryder Cup. The PGA Centenary Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus and one of three at Gleneagles, currently measures 7,262 yards (6,640 m) off the championship tees.
