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.

Four years ago, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth was 17 years old and playing in the Junior Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, site of this years Ryder Cup. Even then, he had the desire to see himself representing the U.S. at this year's Ryder Cup.

“I remember when I was here four years ago and thinking, is there a chance that I could be here four years from now for The Ryder Cup? And what do you know. It's pretty awesome to be here having stayed in the same place, and I think the same team room that we have now in the hotel."

A stepping-stone for many great players in the past, Jordan also reflected on how this experience helped shape his goal for making the 2014 squad.

"Back then, they showed us videos of the Junior Ryder Cup and guys that have gone on to become professional golfers since. Looking back on those videos that we watched and to know that I'm one of those guys now that's representing the United States of America, it's a really cool feeling.”

Admitting that he has been looking forward to this year's Ryder Cup for a while, Spieth, who plays the Pro V1x golf ball and a full complement of Titleist golf clubs, went back to his Junior Ryder Cup roots.

“I found one of the special Scotty Cameron putter head covers I had from then. I've been using that for a month or so. I used it through the Playoffs just getting ready. I thought it was a cool thing to do. It was cool that I still had it."

Be sure to keep an eye out for Jordan's cover this week at Gleneagles!
