Fore! The Ryder Cup is teeing off this weekend. After three years away from the historic championship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the games are finally returning. Team Europe looks to defend its title after the delay, but will Team USA take the trophy thanks to a home court advantage? We have all the info you need to watch this year’s Ryder Cup.
The tournament will be held at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin this year. Both teams consist of 12 golfers, with Team USA introducing six rookies teeing up this year, including The Open champion Collin Morikawa and FedEx Cup champion Patrick Cantlay. On the flip side, Team Europe has the most tenured player in the Ryder Cup’s nearly century-long history: Lee Westwood, who has 11 total appearances at the tournament.
