GLENMUIR: PROUD TO BE PART OF THE RYDER CUP
Glenmuir is extremely delighted to have been a part of the 2021 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, USA and get #BehindtheTeam from Europe who were ultimately defeated by a record 10 points by home Team USA, with the final result standing at USA 19 - 9 Europe meaning to Ryder Cup went back to the USA.
Glenmuir have knitted the European Ryder Cup Team together since 1987. As part of Glenmuir’s coverage of the Ryder Cup, we launched a new series to capture the essence of The Ryder Cup and the emotions which go with not only supporting the team but being part of it.
The exclusive photography is all ours, but the team is all yours.
Going into the tournament, odds were highly in favour of Team USA who, despite having 6 rookies in the playing team, comprised of 8 out of the top 10 of the World Golf Rankings (and 11 out of the top 20). The atmosphere was tough for Team Europe. Due to travel restrictions because of the pandemic, boisterous home supporters heavily outweighed the number of European fans on course, though they didn't let that dampen spirits with plenty still getting into the swing of the tournament donning fancy dress, European Blue and cheering on their team in good voice.
After winning only one match on the first morning of play thanks to the combo of Spain's Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia defeating Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, Team Europe only managed a further 1 point in the Friday afternoon fourballs after halving 2 of the matches.
Rahm and Garcia struck again on day 2, winning Europe's only point of the morning and a further point in the afternoon, with the combination of Shane Lowry and Tyrell Hatton picking up another point. This left Europe on the back foot going into the final day of the competition with the score USA 11 - 5 Europe.
Despite the first point of day 3 being blue thanks to Rory McIlroy's defeat of Xander Schauffele, Team USA went on to win 7 of the 12 singles matches, winning back the Ryder Cup by a record 10 points with a final score of USA 19 - 9 Europe.
ROAD TO ROME
Good teams win together, great teams lose together. The road to Rome beckons and who will triumph, no one knows, but for now from all of us here at the Glenmuir family, we congratulate Team USA.
