  • The Ryder Cup is a team competition between the U.S. and Europe.
  • The United States has won two of the last three events.

The Ryder Cup will return in 2023 at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Italy when Zach Johnson (U.S.) and Luke Donald (Europe) lead their respective teams.

The United States has won two of the last three editions overall, including a blowout of Team Europe 19-9 at Whistling Straits in 2021. They currently have Ryder Cup odds of -175 for the 2023 edition.

Overall, the United States has a record of 27-14-2, but Europe has won nine of the last 13 editions. It’s worth noting it hasn’t always been the United States vs. Europe.

A brief Ryder Cup history: When the event began in 1923 it was the United States vs. Great Britain, which continued until 1971. Then for four events, it included Great Britain and Ireland, and then beginning in 1979 and continuing to this day, it includes all of Europe.
