Product Description

The Ryder Cup Meets the Monster, a first-of-its-kind, hardbound book showcasing the history behind the 35th Ryder Cup matches at Oakland Hills. The book includes a vast collection of stories, pictures and archive materials, many of which have never been seen in published form. The Ryder Cup Meets the Monster is a limited-edition keepsake destined to be a collector?s item for years to come. The Ryder Cup Meets the Monster captures the history and excitement behind the sport?s most gripping tournament to be hosted at one of America?s most highly regarded sites for major golf championships. Highlights from book include: ? The close relationship between Samuel Ryder and Walter Hagen, Oakland Hill?s first golf professional, that eventually led to the first Ryder Cup Matches in the late 1920?s and early 1930?s. The role the Red Cross Matches played in the War effort and saving the Ryder Cup from extinction; particularly those hosted at Oakland Hills as well as other clubs in and around Detroit, Michigan. The significant role that Jack Nicklaus played off the course that opened the field to European players beyond Great Britain and Ireland; a recommendation that cemented his place in Ryder Cup history. The influx of European talent in the mid 1980s? led by Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Ian Woosnam and Sandy Lyle? that would end the Americans? dominance and change the face of the tournament forever. The "War on the Shore" in 1991 that would take the thrill of victory and agony of defeat to a level never seen in competitive golf. The pandemonium at Brookline in 1999 following Justin Leonard?s miracle putt at the 17th green? a defining moment that raised Ryder Cup intensity to a full boil. Sam Torrance?s miracle work in 2002 that gave the Europeans a victory over an American team that was among the greatest ever assembled. One of the most anticipated sporting events in 2004; the 35th Matches are expected to write yet another chapter in the illustrious history of both Oakland Hills and the Ryder Cup.. Price: $46.59
