This week in golf, the 2018 Ryder Cup will be played at the Albatros course of Le Golf National, just outside of Paris, France. The United States currently maintains posession of the Ryder Cup, having won the last time the matches were held at Hazeltine in Minnesota. The European Team must win the matches outright to regain posession of the Ryder Cup.

The Ryder Cup is played at match play where the lowest score wins the hole. The player or side that wins the most holes is the winner of that match. Teams receive one point for each match won. Each team receives one half point in the event a match is tied, also known as “halved.”
This format is also known as better ball. Each player plays the hole with his own ball and the lowest score is the team score for the hole.
This format is also known as alternate shot. Players take turns playing one ball on the hole. One player tees off and then his teammate hits the second shot, alternating until the hole is finished or conceded. The players also alternate who tees off on each hole.
One-on-one matches where each team must use all players for a total of 12 matches.
