After being postponed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 43rd Ryder Cup is finally upon us.

Taking place at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, the match pits Steve Stricker’s US side against a European team led by Padraig Harrington.

Europe won the most recent edition of the event at Le Golf National in France in 2018 and has won nine of the last 12 matches. However, the Americans have a formidable record on home soil, with three victories in the last five contests staged there.

In Stricker, they also have a popular captain who will be leading in his home state. 

It’s shaping up to another fantastic, fascinating occasion – and, in the UK at least, there’s only one place to watch it live.
