THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
When was the world's first Ryder Cup?
The Ryder Cup was originally set
up as a golf tournament between the best golfers from America and Great Britain.
The origins of the idea have been credited to both
Sylvanus P. Jermain and James Harnett.
The first matches, not yet called the Ryder Cup, were
held in 1921 at Gleneagles, Scotland with the British pounding the Americans 9 -
Another match was
held in 1926, still not a Ryder Cup, and this time the Americans lost 13 1/2 - 1
After the match Samuel Ryder had a spot of tea with some of the British team members and
the idea he sponsor the trophy was suggested.
Samuel Ryder agreed
and commissioned the design of the trophy that bears his name and has
British team member, Abe Mitchell's, likeness on the top.
The first official Ryder Cup was held in 1927 at the Worcester Country Club in
Worcester, Mass. with the Americans winning 9 1/2 - 2 1/2.
