The first Ryder Cup ever


WORLD'S FIRST RYDER CUP
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 - 3.

Another match was held in 1926, still not a Ryder Cup, and this time the Americans lost 13 1/2 - 1 1/2.

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.
