Professional golf's biggest spectacle is back: it's time for the 2023 Ryder Cup. 

  • Venue: Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, Rome, Italy
  • Course details: Par 72, 6343 yards
  • Date: September 29 - 1 October
  • Ryder Cup holders: United States

The 44th edition of the Ryder Cup will see Team Europe attempt to get revenge on Team USA.

In 2021, Padraig Harrington's old guard were obliterated 19-9 by Steve Stricker's trailblazing young guns at Whistling Straits. 

The Americans margin of victory was the biggest in a Ryder Cup since 1967. 

This year Team USA are spearheaded by Zach Johnson. He boasts a stellar 16-5-3 Ryder Cup record.

Team Europe have Luke Donald at the helm, who was on the winning side in all four of his Ryder Cup appearances.

Donald has contributed a whopping 10.5 points from the 15 matches he has played. He also served as a vice-captain to Thomas Bjorn at the 2018 Ryder Cup.

  1. The Ryder Cup is played using match play format. In match play, players compete hole by hole, with each hole won, lost, or tied, earning a point for the winning side.

  2. Match types: The tournament consists of several types of matches, including:

    • Foursomes: Also known as alternate shot, in which two players from each team take turns playing the same ball. One player tees off on odd-numbered holes, and the other tees off on even-numbered holes.

    • Fourballs: Also known as better ball, where each player plays their own ball throughout the round, and the lowest score from each team on each hole is used to determine the team's score for that hole.

    • Singles: Individual matches where each player from one team competes against a player from the opposing team.

  3. Scoring: In match play, the winning team or player earns a point for each hole won. If the hole is tied, no points are awarded. The team or player with the most points at the end of a match wins that match. If a match is tied, each team/player earns half a point.

  4. Point system: Each match is worth one point, and the team that accumulates the most points over the course of the tournament wins the Ryder Cup. In the case of a tie, the defending champion (the team that won the previous Ryder Cup) retains the trophy.

  5. Order of play: The team captains determine the order of play for the matches. Foursomes and fourballs are usually played over the first two days, with singles matches taking place on the final day.

  6. Singles draw: On the final day, the team captains announce the singles match pairings. Each team's captain takes turns selecting the order in which their players will compete in the singles matches.

  7. Total points: The team with the most points at the end of all the matches wins the Ryder Cup.

Every two years.

  • Can LIV Golf players play in the Ryder Cup?

In short, yes. 

The Ryder Cup is overseen by the European-based DP World Tour and the PGA of America. 

So in order to be eligible for selection, players have to be members of either organisation. 

Some players have resigned memberships from the DP World Tour, which is why the likes of Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Graeme McDowell are not involved in any capacity. 

Brooks Koepka thrust himself into contention for qualification for the United States after he won the 2023 PGA Championship. 

The Presidents Cup is also held biennially and in alternating years. The Presidents Cup is played between an International team against the United States. The Ryder Cup is the older of the two tournaments and held in higher regard. 

Nope! Ryder Cup players do not receive prize money for participating in the event. Unlike traditional professional golf tournaments where players compete for a purse and a share of the prize money, the Ryder Cup is unique in that it is more about national pride, team camaraderie, and the competition itself

Selection criteria does change. The United States announced that for the 2023 Ryder Cup the team would consist of six automatic qualifiers and six captains picks. 

For Europe, the team is also evenly split from six automatic qualifiers made up of the European Points list and the World Points list. Donald also had six captains picks. 

Enter into the ballot

In 2025 the Ryder Cup will be played on American soil. It will be staged in New York at Bethpage Black for the very first time. After that, it will return to Ireland to Adare Manor in Country Limerick, Ireland. 


  • United States 8/11
  • Europe 13/8
  • Draw 12/1
