Pete Burns has done a great job with this book Pete Burns has done a great job with this book, ably assisted by Ed Hodge. Over 450 pages of comments, anecdotes, history and insights from all the top names in Ryder Cup history from both sides of the Atlantic. Set in chronological order, and with some interesting historical photographs right up to the stunning opening shot at Gleneagles in 2014, this is a must-have read and keepsake for all golf fans. A hugely entertaining read from cover to cover.

It does exactly what it promises on the cover This book gives a fantastic insight into one of the fiercest rivalries in sport. Some of the anecdotes are brilliant, particularly those in the chapters focusing on the most recent matches. I found it particularly interesting to relive the contests that were played as I was getting into golf as a junior and the piecing together of each story as told by rival players helps to successfully create that behind-the-scenes feel. Really enjoyable stuff.
