Ryder Cup to Stay in Europe

I recently attended the Scottish Golf Show in Glasgow and although I wasn’t allowed to touch the coveted trophy, I managed to get my picture taken alongside it. 


On the back of the success of last year’s competition, everyone at PerryGolf is excited about another high quality encounter and one which I personally cannot wait for!  The Ryder Cup, for me, is comfortably the best event on the sporting calendar. The excitement and drama which unfold on the Sunday afternoon is unrivalled and, all going well, I’ll be there to enjoy the excitement at Gleneagles next year.
