2021 Ryder Cup: TV Times, Schedule, Scoring, Format, How it Works, Rosters, History

Here's a comprehensive guide to the 2021 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits, which is in the United States for the first time since 2016.

The United States Ryder Cup team and captain Steve Stricker host the 2021 Ryder Cup this week at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin against the European team captained by Padraig Harrington.

This is the 43rd playing of the Ryder Cup, which was originally scheduled for 2020 but was delayed by a year because of the pandemic. 

Here are answers to some of the most-often asked questions around the team event, including scoring and format, TV times, how players make the squads and more.

What is the schedule of matches for the 2021 Ryder Cup?

All times are Central and may change based on weather or other delays.

How does a team win the Ryder Cup?

The first team to reach 14 ½ points wins the Ryder Cup. If the matches end in a 14-14 tie, the team holding the Ryder Cup retains it. The European team is the defending champion and will retain the cup if the matches at Whistling Straits end in a tie.

Each match is worth one point. Ties are worth a 1/2-point to each side.

The three days of the matches consist of 28 total matches, each of which is worth one point. There are no playoffs in Ryder Cup matches. Ties result in a half point for each team.

What is the TV schedule for the 2021 Ryder Cup?

This is the TV schedule for the 2021 Ryder Cup. All times are Central. You can watch all Ryder Cup matches on the Golf Channel and NBC. The first day is foursomes and fourball from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, on the Golf Channel. 

The second day is foursome and fourballs from 7 to 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept, 25, on the Golf Channel and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on NBC. 

The final day of 12 singles matches is from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26, on NBC.

2021 Ryder Cup TV schedule

  • Friday, Sept. 24: 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the Golf Channel
  • Saturday, Sept. 25: 7 to 8 a.m. on the Golf Channel and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on NBC.
  • Sunday, Sept. 26: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on NBC

You can watch featured groups stream on or by downloading the official Ryder Cup app.

What's the 'envelope rule' at the Ryder Cup?

From the AP's Doug Ferguson: "At some point Saturday evening as the captains are filling out their lineups for the final session of singles matches, they are required to put one name in the envelope. That player would sit out and be given a half-point if someone on the other team can’t play because of injury."

That is expanded to four names this year because of the pandemic. Captains will submit three additional names in a second envelope to be used only if players have to withdraw because of COVID.

When is the 2021 Ryder Cup?

The matches in the 2021 Ryder Cup start Friday, Sept. 24, and finish on Sunday, Sept. 26. There is plenty of hoopla before then, of course, including practice rounds and the opening ceremonies. That is when the captains will announce their pairings for the next day

When was the 2021 Ryder Cup opening ceremony?

The opening ceremony was Thursday, Sept. 23. 

What Is the Ryder Cup?

The Ryder Cup is a competition between a team from the United States and one from Europe that is played every other year, usually. The 2020 Ryder Cup was postponed because of the pandemic. The first Ryder Cup was played in 1927. The competition has been in its modern format since 1979 and features both fourball and foursome matches on Friday and Saturday and singles matches on Sunday. Fourball means every player plays his ball and posts a score. Lowest score wins a hole. Foursomes feature alternating shots, lowest score wins the hole.

Where is the 2021 Ryder Cup?

The 2021 Ryder Cup is at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisc., about 15 minutes north of Sheboyan. The location of the Ryder Cup alternates between Europe and the United States. The 2018 Ryder Cup was at Le Golf National outside Paris, France. The most recent Ryder Cup in the United States was at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn., in 2016. The 2023 Ryder Cup will be in Rome, Italy. The 2025 event will be at Bethpage Black in New York.

How are the Ryder Cup teams made?

The 2021 U.S. Team is made up of the top six in the points rankings with six captain's picks. These are the American players who qualified automatically:

Collin Morikawa
Dustin Johnson
Bryson DeChambeau
Brooks Koepka
Justin Thomas
Patrick Cantlay

These are the captain's picks Steve Stricker announced Sept. 8:

Tony Finau
Xander Schauffele 
Jordan Spieth
Harris English
Scottie Scheffler
Daniel Berger 

Because the Ryder Cup was postponed, points American players earned in 2019 were included with the ones earned in 2020 and 2021. Players earned points based on money won in major championships, WGC events and regular PGA Tour events.

The European Team is made up of the first four players from the Ryder Cup European Points List on Sept. 12, followed by the leading five players from the Ryder Cup World Points List. Captain Padraig Harrington made his three captain's picks Sept. 12 when he added Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia and Shane Lowry.

Who's on the 2021 American Ryder Cup roster?

1. Collin Morikawa (rookie)

Age: 24.

World ranking: 3.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 5.

2021 victories: WGC-Workday Championship, British Open.

Majors: PGA Championship (2020), British Open (2021).

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: Leading the U.S. standings in his first year of eligibility.

His form took a dip in the PGA Tour postseason for the second straight year, but the intensity of the Ryder Cup should get his attention. He figures to be a rock in foursomes with his repeatable swing. The one area of his game under the most scrutiny is his putting.

2. Dustin Johnson (2010, 2012, 2016, 2018, 2021)

Age: 37.

World ranking: 2.

Ryder Cup record: 7-9-0.

Career victories: 25.

2021 victories: Saudi International.

Majors: U.S. Open (2016), Masters (2020).

Ryder Cup partners: Phil Mickelson (0-2-0), Jim Furyk (0-1-0), Matt Kuchar (3-1-0), Brooks Koepka (0-2-0), Rickie Fowler (1-2-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Holing a 30-foot birdie putt on the 17th at Medinah in a Saturday afternoon fourballs victory. It’s believed to be his biggest fist pump ever.

He still is regarded as the most talented American, but finding him a partner has been a challenge in the Ryder Cup. Johnson and Whistling Straits will evoke memories of his club touching sand that turned out to be a bunker, costing him a spot in the playoff in the 2010 PGA Championship.

3. Bryson DeChambeau (2018)

Age: 28.

World ranking: 7.

Ryder Cup record: 0-3-0.

Career victories: 9.

2021 victories: Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Majors: U.S. Open (2020).

Ryder Cup partners: Phil Mickelson (0-1-0), Tiger Woods (0-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Being picked for his first Ryder Cup and getting Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson as his partners. They lost both matches.

His length should be a good fit for Whistling Straits, especially the short par 4s where he can go for the green. His thin skin has been an issue, though he probably won’t have to worry about that in front of a pro-American gallery.

4. Brooks Koepka (2016, 2018, 2021)

Age: 31.

World ranking: 9.

Ryder Cup record: 4-3-1.

Career victories: 11.

2021 victories: Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Majors: U.S. Open (2017, 2018), PGA Championship (2018, 2019).

Ryder Cup partners: Brandt Snedeker (2-0-0), Dustin Johnson (0-2-0), Tony Finau (1-1-0)

Ryder Cup moment: Winning three matches in his 2016 debut at Hazeltine, none going beyond the 16th hole.

Injured his left wrist again hitting tree root beneath the turf at East Lake, causing him to withdraw from the rest of the Tour Championship and raising questions about how healthy he will be for the Ryder Cup.

5. Justin Thomas (2018, 2021)

Age: 28.

World ranking: 6.

Ryder Cup record: 4-1-0.

Career victories: 14.

2021 victories: Players Championship.

Majors: PGA Championship (2017).

Ryder Cup partners: Jordan Spieth (3-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Drilling his drive down the middle of the 18th fairway in Paris that led to a 1-up victory over Rory McIlroy in singles in 2018.

He made an impressive debut in 2018 by going 3-1 and partnering with longtime friend Jordan Spieth. He has been frustrated by his putting for most of the year.

6. Patrick Cantlay (rookie)

Age: 29.

World ranking: 4.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 5.

2021 victories: Memorial, BMW Championship, Tour Championship.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: Winning the Tour Championship to get the final automatic spot on the team.

Makes his Ryder Cup debut and already looked upon as a feared opponent based on his clutch putting from the last month and not having any apparent weakness in his game. He partnered well with Xander Schauffele in the Presidents Cup.

7. Tony Finau (2018, 2021)

Age: 32.

World ranking: 10.

Ryder Cup record: 2-1-0.

Career victories: 2.

2021 victories: The Northern Trust.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: Brooks Koepka (1-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: His 8-iron that hit the wooden plank framing the water on the 16th hole, soaring in the air and landing 3 feet away for birdie to square the opening match of the 2018 Ryder Cup.

He made a solid debut in 2018 by going 2-1-0 and handing Tommy Fleetwood is only loss of the week. Finau figures to have even more confidence coming off his playoff victory in The Northern Trust. Not winning had been a burden.

8. Xander Schauffele (rookie)

Age: 27.

World ranking: 5.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 5.

2021 victories: Olympics.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: Getting left off the 2018 team as Jim Furyk used his captain’s pick on Tony Finau.

One of the most complete players on the U.S. team whose strength is bouncing back from bad holes. He already has one victory this year playing for the flag, winning the gold medal in the Olympics.

9. Jordan Spieth (2014, 2016, 2018, 2021)

Age: 28.

World ranking: 14.

Ryder Cup record: 7-5-2.

Career victories: 15.

2021 victories: Valero Texas Open.

Majors: Masters (2015), U.S. Open (2015), British Open (2017).

Ryder Cup partners: Patrick Reed (4-1-2), Justin Thomas (3-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Has only lost two of the 11 team matches he has played, but still hasn’t won a singles match.

He missed the Presidents Cup in 2019 and didn’t figure to be part of this team at the start of the year until rediscovering his game and his touch. He was the runner-up to Jason Day at Whistling Straits in the 2015 PGA Championship.

10. Harris English (rookie)

Age: 32.

World ranking: 11.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 4.

2021 victories: Sentry Tournament of Champions, Travelers Championship.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: Challenging for a spot on the 2014 team and then going his final seven tournaments without finishing in the top 30.

Good length off the tee, good touch around the green and easily the most agreeable character on the U.S. team. He is the oldest of the six rookies at age 32, and one of only three Americans with multiple victories this year on the PGA Tour.

11. Scottie Scheffler (rookie)

Age: 25.

World ranking: 21.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: None.

2021 victories: None.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: Getting what is believed to be the sixth and final captain’s pick.

First player since Rickie Fowler in 2010 to make Ryder Cup debut as a captain’s pick without having won on the PGA Tour. His his consistent play is why he qualified for the last two Masters and the last two Tour Championships.

12. Daniel Berger (rookie)

Age: 28.

World ranking: 16.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 4.

2021 victories: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: At least being talked about as a potential pick for the 2016 team.

He showed plenty of emotion and no mercy during the U.S. rout in the Presidents Cup in 2017. Berger’s resurgence began after golf returned from the pandemic. He has won twice since then.

Who's on the 2021 European Ryder Cup team?

1. Jon Rahm (2018, 2021)

Country: Spain.

Age: 26.

World ranking: 1.

Ryder Cup record: 1-2-0.

Career victories: 13.

2021 victories: U.S. Open.

Majors: U.S. Open (2021).

Ryder Cup partners: Justin Rose (0-1-0), Ian Poulter (0-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Beating Tiger Woods in singles in his Ryder Cup debut.

Becomes the fourth European to be No. 1 in the world at the Ryder Cup. Finished a big year by winning first major, having first child, missing two tournaments because of COVID-19 and winning the PGA Tour money list and Vardon Trophy. He will be counted on for many points.

2. Rory McIlroy (2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2021)

Country: Northern Ireland.

Age: 32.

World ranking: 15.

Ryder Cup record: 11-9-4

Career victories: 27.

2021 victories: Wells Fargo Championship.

Majors: U.S. Open (2011), PGA Championship (2012, 2014), British Open (2014).

Ryder Cup partners: Graeme McDowell (2-3-1), Ian Poulter (2-1-1), Sergio Garcia (2-1-1), Andy Sullivan (0-1-0), Thomas Pieters (3-0-0), Thorbjorn Olesen (0-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Showing up with minutes to spare for his singles match at Medinah in 2012, and with a police escort, because he forgot Chicago was in the Central time zone. And then he beat Keegan Bradley.

He won at Quail Hollow but still isn’t all the way back to living up to his talent. He remains a central figure for Europe. Since his debut in 2010, McIlroy has yet to sit out a match. He has partnered with rookies in each of the last two Ryder Cup matches.

3. Tommy Fleetwood (2018, 2021)

Country: England.

Age: 30.

World ranking: 36.

Ryder Cup record: 4-1-0.

Career victories: 5.

2021 victories: None.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: Francesco Molinari (4-0-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Becoming part of the “Moliwood” partnership that led Europe to victory in 2018.

Fleetwood no longer has Francesco Molinari at this side for this Ryder Cup, and it’s his first Ryder Cup away from home. Has slipped out of the top 30 in the world ranking after a winless year thus far.

4. Viktor Hovland (rookie)

Country: Norway.

Age: 23.

World ranking: 13.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 3.

2021 victories: BMW International Open.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: Easily qualifying in his first year of eligibility.

He was looked upon as being on the Ryder Cup team almost from the moment he turned pro. The first Norwegian to play in the Ryder Cup, he already has two PGA Tour victories and one in Europe this year in Germany. He won the U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach.

5. Paul Casey (2004, 2006, 2008, 2018, 2021)

Country: England.

Age: 44.

World ranking: 23.

Ryder Cup record: 4-3-5.

Career victories: 19.

2021 victories: Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: David Howell (2-0-0), Robert Karlsson (0-0-2), Henrik Stenson (0-1-0), Sergio Garcia (0-0-1), Tyrrell Hatton (1-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Making a hole-in-one on the 14th hole in foursomes at The K Club to win the match in 2006.

He went 10 years without the Ryder Cup as he focused on life in America, and now it means everything to him. He won in Dubai at the start of the year as part of his 10 top-10 finishes this year. Partnered Tyrrell Hatton for two matches in Paris.

6. Lee Westwood (1997, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2021)

Country: England.

Age: 48.

World ranking: 34.

Ryder Cup record: 20-18-6.

Career victories: 41.

2021 victories: None.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: Nick Faldo (2-2-0), Darren Clarke (6-2-0), Thomas Bjorn (1-0-0), Sergio Garcia (4-1-2), Colin Montgomerie (0-2-0), Soren Hansen (0-1-1), Martin Kaymer (1-0-1), Luke Donald (1-1-0), Francesco Molinari (0-1-0), Nicolas Colsaerts (1-0-0), Jamie Donaldson (2-1-0), Thomas Pieters (0-1-0), Danny Willett (0-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Rallying to beat Kenny Perry in singles in 2004 at Oakland Hills, his first singles victory, in a match that assured Europe would keep the Ryder Cup.

He ties Nick Faldo by making his 11th team and becomes the fourth-oldest European to play in the Ryder Cup. Westwood has been around so long that four of his 13 partners have gone on to become Ryder Cup captains. Held his own earlier in the year against Bryson DeChambeau in consecutive weeks on hard courses.

7. Bernd Wiesberger (rookie)

Country: Austria.

Age: 35.

World ranking: 61.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 10.

2021 victories: Made in Himmerland.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: A tie for 20th at the BMW PGA Championship to secure an automatic spot on his first Ryder Cup team.

Not to be overlooked is that he has more European Tour victories than three other qualifiers. At No. 61 in the world, he is the only player at Whistling Straits outside the top 50. He had a three-win season in 2019 before the pandemic hit. He’s the first Austrian to play in the Ryder Cup.

8. Matt Fitzpatrick (2016, 2021)

Country: England.

Age: 27.

World ranking: 27.

Ryder Cup record: 0-2-0.

Career victories: 6.

2021 victories: None.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: Henrik Stenson (0-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Failing to play the 17th or 18th holes in his Ryder Cup matches.

He ended last year by winning the DP World Tour Championship. While he hasn’t won this year, he tends to play his best golf on the strongest courses. He had a poor start to his Ryder Cup career, playing only two matches at Hazeltine in 2016 and losing them both.

9. Tyrrell Hatton (2018, 2021)

Country: England.

Age: 29.

World ranking: 19.

Ryder Cup record: 1-2-0.

Career victories: 6.

2021 victories: Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: Paul Casey (1-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Teaming with Paul Casey to beat Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler, his only Ryder Cup point.

Following a breakthrough year in 2020, added a victory against one of the strongest fields in Abu Dhabi. Hatton has been quiet since then, at least based on his results. He played with Casey in both team matches in Paris.

10. Ian Poulter (1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2021)

Country: England.

Age: 45.

World ranking: 49.

Ryder Cup record: 14-6-2.

Career victories: 15.

2021 victories: None.

Majors: None.

Ryder Cup partners: Darren Clarke (0-1-0), Justin Rose (4-1-0), Graeme McDowell (1-0-0), Ross Fisher (0-1-0), Luke Donald (1-0-0), Martin Kaymer (1-0-0), Rory McIlroy (2-1-1), Stephen Gallacher (0-1-0), Jon Rahm (0-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Closing with five straight birdies in a tide-turning fourballs match at Medinah in 2012 that sparked Europe’s improbable rally.

Known as “The Postman” because of his pledge to always deliver, and he usually does. He hasn’t won in three years. He doesn’t have the length for Whistling Straits. None of that seems to matter when Poulter is playing in a Ryder Cup. Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose are the only partners with whom he has played more than once.

11. Shane Lowry (rookie)

Country: Ireland.

Age: 34.

World ranking: 40.

Ryder Cup record: Rookie.

Career victories: 5.

2021 victories: None.

Majors: British Open (2019).

Ryder Cup partners: None.

Ryder Cup moment: Getting the call from fellow Irishman Padraig Harrington that he was on the team.

He hasn’t won since his major title at Royal Portrush, but he was strong at Kiawah Island in the PGA Championship and has played reasonably well under the pressure of trying to qualify for his first Ryder Cup. He tends to play his best on big stages.

12. Sergio Garcia (1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2021

Country: Spain.

Age: 41.

World ranking: 43.

Ryder Cup record: 22-12-7.

Career victories: 31.

2021 victories: None.

Majors: Masters (2017).

Ryder Cup partners: Jesper Parnevik (3-0-1), Lee Westwood (4-1-2), Luke Donald (5-1-0), Jose Maria Olazabal (2-0-0), Miguel Angel Jimenez (0-1-0), Paul Casey (0-0-1), Nicolas Colsaerts (0-1-0), Rory McIlroy (1-1-1), Martin Kaymer (0-2-0), Rafa Cabrera Bello (1-0-1), Alex Noren (1-1-0).

Ryder Cup moment: Beating Rickie Fowler in Paris to become the all-time points leader for Europe.

He joins Lee Westwood as the only players on this team to have played in the Ryder Cup over parts of four decades. The youngest ever at age 19 in 1999 and he’s been going strong ever since. He holds the Ryder Cup record for most points at 25 1/2.

What is the format of Ryder Cup matches?

The first two days of competition feature fourball and foursomes matches. The order is determined by the home captain. The third day consists of 12 singles matches.

  • In fourball, each member of a two-man team plays his own ball, so four balls are in play on every hole. Each team counts the lowest of its two scores on each hole, and the team whose player has the lowest score wins the hole. If the low scores are tied, the hole is halved.
  • In foursomes, each two-man team plays one ball per hole with the players taking turns until each hole is complete. Players alternate hitting tee shots, with one leading off on odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting first on even-numbered holes. The team with the low score on each hole wins that hole. If their scores are tied, the hole is halved.
  • In singles, each match features one player from each team. The player with the lower score on each hole wins that hole. If their scores are tied, the hole is halved.
  • Unlike stroke play, players don't have to complete each hole in match play. If a player concedes a stroke – almost always a putt – to his opponent, the opponent picks up his ball, takes the score he would have made on the next stroke and moves on to the next hole.
