Ryder Cup


The Ryder Cup

More than ten years in the making, The Ryder Cup proved worth the wait when it was played in Wales for the first time at The Celtic Manor Resort in  2010.

The 2010 Ryder Cup was even described as the “greatest ever” after the sun shone on a dramatic final day at The Celtic Manor Resort.

Wales Open champion Graeme McDowell enjoyed his second winning moment in the space of four months on the spectacular Twenty Ten Course when it fell upon him to secure the winning point for Europe in the very last match.

McDowell beat American Hunter Mahan in front of the Twenty Ten members pavilion above the 17th hole after holing a thrilling birdie putt on the 16th green.

Europe had held a commanding three-point lead going into the final day of singles which had been extended into Monday for the first time following torrential rain on Friday and Sunday. The Americans fought back on the closing day with their long list of winners including Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, the best two players in the world. When the entire four days of competition boiled down to the 28th and final game, McDowell was up to the challenge.

“This is the greatest Ryder Cup ever witnessed on either side of the Atlantic,” said Phil Weaver, Chairman of the Professional Golfers Association, at the closing ceremony.

“The stunning atmosphere of The Twenty Ten Course has been challenged by the conditions but thanks to the good people of Wales we have overcome.”

Jim Remy, President of the PGA of America, added: “I’d like to thank everyone, especially (Celtic Manor Chairman) Sir Terry Matthews for all their hard work, but most of all their friendship. It’s clear there’s nothing like Welsh hospitality.”

During his victory speech, Europe Captain Colin Montgomerie said: “I congratulate Sir Terry Matthews and his fantastic staff at the Celtic Manor Resort and, in particular, a superb vote of thanks goes to Jim McKenzie and his team of 110 greenkeepers who made playing here possible. The world was watching and Wales delivered.”
