Countdown to the Ryder Cup accelerates as team rosters take form

Expect to see the team of Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth often during the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National. They won five of a possible seven points as partners in 2014 and 2016.

We’re three weeks away from the Ryder Cup, the biennial competition between the United States and Europe. The U.S. leads the all-time series 26-13 and holds the Cup after winning in convincing fashion at Hazeltine in 2016.

We’re counting down the days until the opening tee shot, no doubt.

Ryder Cup awarded to France

It was announced on Tuesday that the biggest event in golf, the Ryder Cup, will be contested in France in 2018. This is a historic announcement as it is only the second time the Ryder Cup Matches will be played in Continental Europe. Le Golf National beat off strong opposition from courses in Germany, Holland, Portugal and Spain; but the decision was well-received by all players on the European Tour.

Le Golf National has been home to The French Open – one of the biggest tournaments on the European Tour – for the last 10 years and it is a course which features in most of our PerryGolf trips to France.
