BBC Sport’s Ryder Cup timeline goes back to the very first international event in the competition, in 1927, but the competition will feature more star players than ever before.

“There will be four rookies in the field, while 21 players with majors or WGC tour wins will be playing in the biennial match against Europe, a team that already boasts four of the game’s biggest stars,” said Matthew Price, a golf commentator with TalkSport radio.

“But don’t be fooled, in many ways it’s the weakest field since 1993 when Colin Montgomerie was the highest ranked player in the world.”

This year’s Ryder Cup was played at Le Golf National, outside Paris, from September 28 to 30.

Play begins Thursday, September 27.

Come 2020, it’s time to look back.
