The 44th Ryder Cup will get underway tomorrow - the latest edition of a sporting event that dates back to 1927 when it made its debut at the Worcester Country Club in Massachusetts.
First contested between Great Britain and Ireland and the USA, it was expanded to include European players in 1979 due to American dominance.
Originally scheduled for 2022, this year's event was pushed back a year after the previous competition was postponed to 2021 due to the global pandemic.
Europe will be hoping to win the cup back from the USA, who registered an impressive 19–9 victory in their home tournament at Whistling Straits.
