There are few events in all of sports that create as much pressure, intensity and passion as the Ryder Cup. Every other year some of the best professional golfers from Europe and the United States earn the honor to represent their country for one impassioned weekend of golf.
This year, the 40th playing of the Ryder Cup will be held on the Centenary course at the Gleneagles Golf Club in Perthshire, Scotland. With flags flying and patriotic chants echoing across the course, players will have to manage the conditions, and their emotions, if they hope to claim victory for themselves, their team and their country.
We caught up with Titleist Brand Ambassadors Zach Johnson and Webb Simpson, along with Titleist Golf Ball Loyalists Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson to get a first-hand account of what it's like to play in the ultimate team competition.
Whether you’re cheering for Team Europe to retain the cup or you’re hoping to see Team USA claim victory, we can all agree that there will be plenty of excitement at Gleneagles this weekend.
Best of luck to both teams and to all of the competitors.
