When Samuel Ryder, a seed merchant from St. Albans in Hertfordshire, first sponsored a golf competition in 1927 he could not have dreamed what a huge event it was to become. The Ryder Cup is the most fiercely contested golf tournament between Britain (Europe) and the United Sates. It attracts the top names in the sport from both sides of the Atlantic. This historic newspaper book covers every Ryder Cup from that inaugural match. It is reproduced from original newspapers at the time and is essential reading for a follower of golf. All articles from 2006 onwards are printed in full colour. The pages are bound in a black, luxury, gold embossed, leather hardback cover that is personalised with an embossed name. Further personalisation appears on the title page. Size 380x310mm.
