Beginning with Fred Daly, Ireland's first competitor who played in 1947, and progressing to our most recent participants, Darren Clarke, Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley, "Ireland and the Ryder Cup" covers two generations of proud sporting achievement by Irish professional golfers. The players recall historic achievements and famous moments. Paul McGinley and Philip Walton describe the experience of holing the winning putts in the Ryder Cup. Christy O'Connor Jnr relives his famous two-iron approach to the 18th green at the Belfry in 1989, while his uncle, the great Christy O'Connor, remembers the good and the bad of playing in ten successive Ryder Cups. This beautifully illustrated book revisits these and other great Irish golfing achievements in this unique competition.
