Welcome to CaddyBytes' Ryder Cup Matches History and Results of all the Ryder Cup matches including the 2010 Ryder Cup Results.  The formation of the Ryder Cup began after two informal matches were played in 1921 and 1926 - both won by the British.  Samuel Ryder a seed merchant who traded from St. Albans Hertferdshire U.K. and who took up playing the game of golf after 50 had attended the matches in 1926 that were played at the Wentworth Golf Club in Surrey, England.  Upon Ryder's influence there after The Ryder Cup Matches became an official competition and Ryder donated the trophy now known as the 'Ryder Cup'.

Since 1979, the first year continental European players participated, the format was changed to the 28-match version in use today, with eight  foursomes/four-ball matches on the first two days and twelve singles matches on the last day.   US dominance of the event prior led to a decision to extend the representation of the British & Irish team to all of Europe beginning in 1979 which was also prompted by the arrival of Severiano Ballesteros on the scene. He and Antonio Garrido were the first Spaniards to play in the event in 1979.  Europe now leads that competition with 8 wins and one tie (whereby they retained the cup that year) and the U.S. Team has won 7 Ryder Cups since that change took place.  (Europe and USA tied the other Ryder Cup) - since the format change to All of Europe vs. the USA.  However Europe has won 5 of the last 7 Ryder Cups played including in 2010:
