The Ryder Cup has very humble roots. It began in 1927 and for many years was a friendly, but sporting get-together of professional golfers from both sides of the ocean.
It grew in stature over the years and, as the event grew into the 1960s, so did the rancor between the United States and the European team. (At that point it was still Great Britain & Ireland, but expanded to Europe in 1979).
There have been spectacular shots, special moments, and historic occasions.
