Europe are the favourites to win this edition. Rory Mcllroy has had a fantastic 2014 having recorded wins in two majors while Ian Poulter, aka ‘Mr Ryder Cup’, was awarded a wildcard as he has got a fantastic record in this competition with a 12-3-0 and a winning rate which is close to a whopping 80%..

USA can also count on a number of experienced players in their ranks with Phil Mickelson that will make his 10th Ryder Cup appearance.

The 'Miracle of Medinah' or the 'Meltdown at Medinah', depending on your allegiance, will go down in the annuls of Ryder Cup history as one of the greats as USA headed into the final day 10-6 up and needing only 4.5 points to win outright but Europe staged a remarkable comeback to win 14.5-13.5.
