The Ryder Cup is a men’s golf tournament played between Europe and the United States every two years. The venue for the competition, which is administered by both the PGA of America and the PGA European Tour, alternates equally between Europe and the U.S locations. The Ryder Cup is named after the Englishman Samuel Ryder, who donated the prized trophy.
Last week marked a #YearToGo until the 2014 Ryder Cup in Scotland. To begin the one year to go celebrations, European Ryder Cup Team Captain, Paul McGinley, and American Ryder Cup Team Captain, Tom Watson, made their way on board the “Ryder Cup Express” from Edinburgh to Gleneagles to meet face to face.
The 2014 Ryder Cup will return to Scotland for play at the Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course. European Team Captain Paul McGinley was excited to have some “design input” for the new Ryder Cup Tartan, which this year will be available in ties, scarves, trousers, and kilts. Scotland First Minister Alex Salmond and Ryder Cup Director Richard Hills revealed the Ryder Cup Tartan at Lochcarron in Selkirk, 40 miles south of East Lothian.
Congratulations to Paul McGinley on being named as Europe’s Ryder Cup Captain for the matches at Gleneagles in 2014. As a good Scot, it would have been nice to see Monty return after his success at Celtic Manor, but I am sure McGinley will also do a great job as he goes up against Tom Watson.
