Ryder Cup preview
The USA will enter Friday's tournament as the Ryder Cup holders, but winning it again won't be easy.
History is against Team USA who has a 30 year drought on European soil, last winning way back in 1993.
But this away season drought isn't exclusive to team USA, as the last 8 Cups have all gone to the home team.
The exception to this Europe's famed win in 2012 on US soil.

For golfing fans, this edition of the Ryder Cup is certainly not short of talent, with all of the world's top 10 golfers competing for continental pride.
The field also includes all the current title holders of the 4 golf majors.
Team USA will be led by the current top ranked golfer in the world, Scottie Scheffler, with the likes of Wyndham Clark, Brian Harman, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa and Xander Schauffele backing him up.
Meanwhile Team Europe aren't short of talent.
They also have current top 10 players Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Viktor Hovland and Matt Fitzpatrick.
Brooks Koepka is the only LIV player in the tournament, teeing off for Team USA after being selected as a captain's pick.
With a star-studded line-up on both sides it's hard to pick a winner, especially as it consists of 3 different match-play formats.
But we think the home ground advantage will mean that Europe will win back the Cup from the USA.Image: @Dmytro Aksonov via Canva.com
