urope need the miracle of all miracles at Whistling Straits on the final day of the Ryder Cup.

2021 Ryder Cup format

The Ryder Cup is a match-play competition, with a total of 28 matches – split into three different formats – played across the three days.

On Friday and Saturday, players play in pairs, with four foursomes and four fourballs matches on each day, meaning only eight players on each team participate in each session. On the Sunday, all 12 players from each team play in a singles match.

The victors of each match claim a point for their team, while the point is halved if the match ends all-square. Should the two teams finish level on 14 points each at the end of the weekend, Europe – as defending champions – would retain the Ryder Cup.
