But 1927 is officially considered as its inaugural year. It is named after the main sponsor Samuel Ryder. At that time it was between USA and GB only. After World War II USA was the country with most wins in contest till 1979 when Jack Nicklaus suggested to include other European countries with British side to have a more competitive tournament and since then Europe is ahead with 11-8 with one tie in total 20 tournaments.
