  • The Ryder Cup is a team competition between the U.S. and Europe.
  • Europe won in the 2023 event, which was held in Italy.

After Team Europe beat Team USA, 16.5-11.5 in Rome at the 2023 Ryder Cup, the attention is now on 2025 when it will be contested at Bethpage Black, just outside of New York City.

The United States has a record of 27-15-2, but Europe has won 10 of the last 14 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.
