Samuel Ryder

Created by English seed merchant and keen amateur golfer Samuel Ryder, the first match was played in Massachussets in 1927, when America beat Great Britain & Ireland 9½ - 2½. They would go on to dominate the matches for over 50 years, until broader-based European teams finally began to provide strong opposition. After 39 matches, the score to date is USA 25, GB&I/Europe 12, with 2 ties.
