Ryder Cup - Now a three days tournament Fri to Sun - has its roots interlinked with The Open tournament, in 1921 when Europe was leading in the race of winning The Open Championship, American players and golf association insisted for a match before The British Open for a better practice.This request was accepted, and hence Ryder Cup was started. But 1927 is officially considered as its inaugural year. It is named after the main sponsor Samuel Ryder. At that time, it was between the USA and GB only. After World War II, the USA was the country with most wins in the contest until 1979. Jack Nicklaus suggested including other European countries with the British side to have a more competitive tournament. Since then, Europe is ahead with 11-8 with one tie in total 20 tournaments. Sometimes The Ryder Cup surpasses all the Majors due to its hype and intensity. Usually, an excessive and ill-mannered celebration is seen after a putt-in or pin attack by a player. Continue public cheering and chanting throughout the tournament is another factor in its intensity. Players of each side do not miss a chance to ask the audience for doing justice to their countryman/continent-man after each point is taken.
