September 30, 2023

After plenty of international intrigue, Fred Couples’ gaffes and a late-breaking Sergio Garcia last gasp to play this year in Rome, the Ryder Cup is finally here, and the multinational event has never had higher stakes. The Americans, led by Captain Zach Johnson, will make the trek to Marco Simone in Italy and attempt to shatter a 30-year winless drought on European soil despite the odds (and playing conditions) firmly against them. Luke Donald and the European team are looking to keep the good times rolling at home and take back the Ryder Cup after a lopsided 2021 defeat at Whistling Straits.

This is the 44th iteration of the biennial event and, as always, the first team of pros to reach 14½ points will claim victory (a 14-14 tie means the Euros retain the Cup, just like at the Solheim Cup last weekend). The opening ceremony is set for Thursday, Sept. 28, and the matches play out Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

What is the Ryder Cup?

The Ryder Cup is a biennial competition between two 12-man teams, one made up of American players and the other made up of European players. Each team has a captain who gets six captain's picks and creates the pairings for the competition.

Has the Ryder Cup always been between Europe and America?

The first Ryder Cup, which was played in 1927, was between the United States and Great Britain. That's the way the matches were contested until 1973, when players from Ireland were added to the Great Britain team. In 1979, all players from continental Europe began to be included on the team. Since then, it has been America versus Europe.

This year's squads are as follows:

United States

Scottie Scheffler
Wyndham Clark
Brian Harman
Patrick Cantlay
Max Homa
Xander Schauffele
Sam Burns
Rickie Fowler
Collin Morikawa
Brooks Koepka
Jordan Spieth
Justin Thomas

Europe

Rory McIlroy
Jon Rahm
Robert MacIntyre
Viktor Hovland
Tyrrell Hatton
Matt Fitzpatrick
Ludvig Aberg
Tommy Fleetwood
Nicolai Hojgaard
Shane Lowry
Justin Rose
Sepp Straka

The winner will receive no prize money but monumental bragging rights for the next two years.
