In 2023 the Ryder Cup will head back across the Atlantic as Europe get set to host the 44th edition of the event.
Team Europe will look to wrestle back the trophy from Team USA after a disappointing showing against the young American side this year.
USA captain Steve Stricker guided the home team to the largest margin of victory since the Europeans joined the competition in 1979 as Europe captain Padraig Harrington saw his team on the back foot from day one.
The Americans started the competition as favourites which is to be expected not just due to their quality but the support of the raucous home crowd, an advantage they won’t have when Europe host the competition.
Here’s everything you need to know about the 2023 Ryder Cup, two years ahead of the competition getting underway.
When is the next Ryder Cup?
The 44th Ryder Cup will be held in in autumn 2023.
The competition was originally scheduled to take place from September 30, 2022 to October 2, 2022 but the 43rd Ryder Cup, due to take place in 2020, was postponed into 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
They Ryder Cup was originally held on odd numbered years until 2001 when the September 11 terror attacks required the postponement of that years competition.
Since then the biennial event has been held on even numbered years but returned to the original schedule this year.
