RYDER CUP GOLF TOURNAMENT

Dates: Sep 27 - Oct 2, 2016
Course: Hazeltine National Golf Club
Location: Chaska, Minn., USA


The 41st Ryder Cup Matches will be held in the United States from September 30 to October 2, 2016, at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota, a suburb southwest of Minneapolis. Europe enters the competition as the cup holders, having won in 2014 in Scotland for their third consecutive win.

The Ryder Cup is a match play event, with each match worth one point. The competition format will be as follows:

Day 1 (Friday) – 4 foursome (alternate shot) matches and 4 fourball (better ball) matches
Day 2 (Saturday) – 4 foursome matches and 4 fourball matches
Day 3 (Sunday) – 12 singles matches

On the first two days there are 4 foursome matches and 4 fourball matches with the home captain choosing which are played in the morning and which in the afternoon.

With a total of 28 points available, 14½ points are required to win the Cup, and 14 points are required for the defending champion to retain the Cup. All matches are played to a maximum of 18 holes.

The announcement that the PGA of America had selected Hazeltine as the venue for the 2016 Ryder Cup was made on April 22, 2002. The order of holes will be different from that normally used for the course. The front nine will be current holes 1–4 and 14–18 while the back nine will be current holes 10–13 and 5–9.
