Few golfing events create an international fervor like the Ryder Cup. The biennial showdown pits America’s best talent against the top shooters from Europe, and with so much pride on the line, the action is always intense. Whether the tourney is held stateside, or at a course across the Atlantic, booking charter flights to the Ryder Cup with Stratos Jets is the easiest way to get from the runway to the fairway.
Officially speaking, there are four majors on the PGA Tour:
- Masters Tournament
- US Open
- The Open Championship
- PGA Championship
If you were to ask many of the game's top professionals, the unofficial fifth major would be the Ryder Cup. With a tradition that dates back to 1927, there is a long-standing rivalry, and camaraderie, amongst the players.
If you need further proof that this event matters, consider this: participants receive no prize money whatsoever. Despite the high-profile nature of this prestigious tournament, and the vast sums of money it garners from advertising and sponsorship revenues, those fortunate enough to be selected to the team play solely for the thrill of competition.
And since the current format was adopted in 1979, the score has been close. Heading into the 2016 Ryder Cup at the Hazeltine National Golf Clug in Chaska, Minn., the Euros hold a slim 10-8 advantage (with one draw) over their American counterparts.
Booking Charter Flights to the Ryder Cup
Since its 1927 beginning, Team USA has been leading the series with 25 wins over Europe and Great Britain. As the tournaments rotates sides of the pond where the host course is located, Ryder Cups have been held on the lush and impressive courses such as Gleneagles in Scotland, Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky, and Wales’ Celtic Manor Resort.
