Golf is a kind of sports that is constantly evolving. One can hardly imagine golf without the Ryder Cup – the most respectable and prestigious golf tournament throughout the world. Ryder Cup 2012, which will be held from 28 to 30 September this year, is truly an event worth visiting and watching. The host of the event is a picturesque location in the USA: the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois. Following the traditions of the past 38 tournaments (this year marks the 39th event), the two competing teams are Europe and the USA.
Preceding the official part of the Ryder Cup, the organizing schedule involves the holding of pre-tournament events, including the Opening Ceremony which will take place on 27 September, 2012, 4PM-5PM (CST). The format of this year’s tournament hasn’t outlived major changes. Spectators will see 28 thrilling golf matches that will be played over 3 days on end: 12 individual matches, 8 foursome and 8 fourball matches correspondingly. The organizers promise to make the competition a captivating adventure both for participants and spectators. Those who are unable to become a part of the event in Madinah, will receive a wonderful opportunity to enjoy all Ryder Cup 2012 Live Stream matches online.
It should be noted that team qualification in the USA has not undergone any alterations, while the team from Europe has been completed according to new guidelines. Thereby, the final players list of the European team consists of two captain’s picks, the first five players listed on the Ryder Cup European Points ranking and first five players listed on the Ryder Cup World Points ranking (excluding the European’s picks). The USA team features four captain’s picks, as well as eight first players on the Ryder Cup Points ranking.
In the end, it must be underlined that, despite the involvement of huge investments and large global audience, the Ryder Cup 2012 bears a special charitable mission. Both teams compete for their country and each player competes for his singular ranking in the global list. However, this is a pure tournament where all raised funds go for charity and social purposes. Hence, all spectators and all viewers can contribute to the mission and make the Ryder Cup 2012 a paragon for inheritance.
