Attending the Ryder Cup is unlike any other tournament ... the excitement is just unreal as the greatest players in the world play for pride and not for prize money. The drama is unique, as players who are accustomed to million dollar putts are melted under the pressure of playing for their country. The 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah was probably the most dramatic ever ... and Scotland in 2014 is certain to be exciting too!
Can the USA Ryder Cup team reverse the overall trend of the last 14 years and give the European Team a beating? Will Tiger Woods lead the team or be on the sidelines? Will the great young guns from Ireland continue their big tournament domination? Be there in person to find out, and attend the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles!
