Who won the last Ryder Cup?

The 42nd Ryder Cup - which took place in 2018 - took place in France and was won by Team Europe (17½–10½).


The long-awaited 43rd Ryder Cup will finally take place, a year after it was supposed to with the delay forced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Europe will look to defend their title against the United States at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, giving the USA home advantage. Europe were the last team to win away from home, doing so in 2012 with the Miracle at Medinah but this will be a tough ask for them here. Europe come into this with the more experienced team than their opponents and, perhaps significantly, more Ryder Cup experience too. On the other hand, it is hard to argue that the Americans do not have the better team on paper and they come into this with recent form behind them with their entire team ranked in the top 21 in the world. The likes of Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter boast plenty of Ryder Cup nous and while they needed a wildcard to take their place at Whistling Straits, they can call upon their previous experience at this event to guide their team to an unlikely victory.
