From 17 September Ten Sports will air the the 35th edition of the
Ryder Cup. Over three days 24 of the best golfers from America and
Europe will be playing as a team rather than as individuals.
So you could have the US vs Europe.. The last time around Europe
had won the Cup. So the US will be hoping to avenge that loss this
year on their home turf.
There are a total of 28 matches, with one point being awarded for
each match won. The side with the most points at the conclusion
of the Ryder Cup Matches wins the Samuel A Ryder trophy. The Ryder
Cup takes place at Oakland Hills, Michigan.
Live coverage starts at 5 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 9 pm
on 19 September. This will be followed by a repeat telecast of each
days action on the following day.
Speaking on the initiative Ten Sports senior VP programming Peter
Hutton added, "The live telecast of the Ryder Cup, one of the
worlds greatest sporting events is yet another initiative by Ten
Sports to bring the best sporting action and events around the world
to our Indian viewers.
"In the past we have telecast premier golf events like the
USPGA Championships, the European PGA Tour tournaments and also
extensive coverage of the Indian Tour.
