The Ryder Cup is a golf trophy, donated by Samuel Ryder, which is awarded biennially in an event called the "Ryder Cup Matches" between teams from Europe and the United States. The Matches are jointly administered by the PGA of America and the PGA European Tour.
The Ryder Cup Matches involve various match play matches between players selected from two teams of twelve.
Currently, the matches consist of eight foursomes matches, eight fourball matches and twelve singles matches. The winner of each match scores a point for their team, with half a point each for any match that is tied after 18 holes. The PGA announced that the 41st Ryder Cup in 2016 would be played at Hazeltine National Golf Club.
This course was designed by Robert Trent Jones and opened in 1962 for play. The first championship hosted by Hazeltine was the 1966 and 1977 US Women's Open, 1970 US Open and a number of amateur events. The course displays a range of challenges, from prairie to wooded areas, numerous water hazards and Hazeltine Lake challenging players on the 16th hole. These features are sure to make an intense competition.
