010 is Ryder Cup year. This golf match, contested biennially by Europe and the USA, will take place at Celtic Manor, Wales, this October - and approximately one billion people will tune in. After a trio of resounding victories for Europe in recent times, the USA fought back hard in 2008 to seize the cup and re-establish their playing dominance. This autumn, the Europeans will be pushing their home-turf advantage, looking to stop the American dream of a second straight win. "The Ryder Cup: A History of Golf's Greatest Match" is an authoritative up-to-date chronicle of this fascinating event. It charts the spirited early years in the 1920s when only the tiny British Isles took on the mighty USA - in what was regularly a one-sided New World affair - through to the gladiatorial modern-day epics and the inclusion of Europe, bringing with it the charismatic captaincy of Tony Jacklin, the cavalier brilliance of Seve Ballesteros, and, against all odds, triumph for Europe on American soil. Bruce Critchley has been commentating on the matches, first for the BBC and now for Sky, for the last 25 years. He presents here an unparalleled insight into the Cup, drawing on personal reflections and interviews with many key individuals.
