The Ryder Cup is held every two years, sides from Europe and American do battle over 3 days in what can be described as the most eagerly awaited sporting event in the world.
The US Ryder Cup team will have a “chip on their shoulder” when they defend the trophy in France in September despite their strength in depth, says captain Jim Furyk.
Furyk was speaking after a gathering, also attended by his European counterpart Thomas Bjorn, in Paris to mark a year to go before the event at Le Golf National. Both captains hit shots from the top of Eiffel tower in a media spectacle.
Furyk also stated he wants Tiger Woods on board as his team tries to win an away match for the first time since 1993. Tiger Woods is no doubt one of the finest golfers to ever play the game but his record in the Ryder Cup is rather undesirable.
Bjorn, meanwhile, claimed he is not concerned by American golf’s growing reputation and said the in-form Tyrrell Hatton is just the sort of player he wants in his team
The US won the Presidents Cup earlier this month by thrashing their International opposition 19-11. A year earlier, they convincingly won back the Ryder Cup with a resounding 17-11 triumph at Hazeltine.
The US Team boast some of the most potent golfing talent on the planet. Among their number they have Open champion Jordan Spieth, US PGA winner Justin Thomas, US Open victor Brooks Koepka, world number one Dustin Johnson and Ryder Cup specialist Patrick Reed.

RULE OF THE MONTH
With badgers currently making a nuisance of themselves on the course we wanted to remind all Members and guests of rule 25-1.
Basically this rule covers what to do if you are unlucky enough to find your ball in an animal scrape.
Interference by an abnormal ground condition (animal scraping) occurs when a ball lies in or touches the condition or when the condition interferes with the player’s stance or the area of his intended swing. If the player’s ball lies on the putting green, interference also occurs if an abnormal ground condition on the putting green intervenes on his line of putt.
You are entitled to free relief except when the ball is in a water hazard or a lateral water hazard, a player may take relief from interference by an abnormal ground condition as follows, the player must lift the ball and drop it, without penalty, within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief.
