The Ryder Cup is played alternate years between 12-member teams from the United States and Europe. It consists of five match-play sessions played over three days.

SELECTION - The European Team will comprise the first four players from the European Points List, followed by the leading five players from the World Points List and completed by three wild cards. The US Team will be made up from the top eight in the points rankings with four captain's picks.

FORMAT - Each of the first two days includes one four-match session of four-ball and one four-match session of foursomes. The final day is reserved for 12 singles matches.

SCORING - Each match is worth one point, with matches ending in a draw worth ½ point to each side. The first team to reach 14 ½ points wins the Ryder Cup. If the matches end in a 14-14 draw, the team holding the Ryder Cup retains it.
