The 42nd Ryder Cup will be held in France this weekend (28–30 September 2018) on the Albatros Course of Le Golf National in Guyancourt, a suburb southwest of Paris.

It will be the second Ryder Cup to be held in Continental Europe, after the 1997 contest, which was held in Spain.

The United States is the defending champion, but has lost the last five matches in Europe, having last won there in 1993.

The Ryder Cup is a match play event, with each match worth one point. The competition format will be as follows:

Day 1 (Friday) – 4 foursome (alternate shot) matches and 4 fourball (better ball) matches
Day 2 (Saturday) – 4 foursome matches and 4 fourball matches
Day 3 (Sunday) – 12 singles matches

On the first two days there will be 4 fourball matches in the morning and 4 foursome matches in the afternoon.

With a total of 28 points available, 14½ points are required to win the Cup, and 14 points are required for the defending champion, the United States, to retain the Cup. All matches are played to a maximum of 18 holes.

All three days, plus the opening ceremony on Thursday, will be shown live on Sky Sports, while the BBC air nightly highlights.
